It doesn't matter who you are or what you are doing, everyone just seems to be in a great mood on Friday (well most everyone anyway). I'm so excited to announce that I finally completed the 29 dresses I've been working on for DAG. They are ready to be photographed and shipped out. This group is headed to Uganda I believe. Pictures coming soon.

Fall is in the air here in the Carolina's. The temps are cool and the leaves have been turning for a couple of weeks now. I will say I'm a tad disappointed we don't have more color this year. The last few years have been pretty drab on color. Fall happens to be my favorite time of year. I love everything about it from the weather to the food (Mmmm....I can smell the aroma of pumpkin coming from the oven and if I think hard enough I can almost taste it) and Halloween!!.

Halloween is fun for the young and the  *slightly* older ;) Each year my husband and I dress up with the kids, but this year I'm a little slack. I may need to repeat what I have saved from last year or several years ago. I haven't made it to the costume shop and NO....I'm not going to sew my own costume. I should for what they charge and how horribly constructed they are, but time.....who has it?! It's bad enough I had to repair my 4 yr olds costume when it came. Are you dressing up? What will you be this year?? How about your little goblins? I was thinking back (and now I'm going to age myself) to the costumes I had when I was a wee one. They all had those plastic masks that were secured with elastic around your head. Do they sell those anywhere anymore?? I'm looking forward to seeing all the little ones running around in their costumes. It's going to be a chilly one here this year. I need to remember to bring a blanket for our hayride.

As mentioned last week I will be adding the Kimono on Etsy today. I'm really excited about this style. It's so adorable/stylish/sassy/you name it and easy to get on and off the kids. Starting this weekend I'll be in the shop working on Christmas.

New Items in the Store

Happy Friday everyone!! I have two new items to share that are now available in the on-line stores.

Introducing the Kimono Dress new to SewShellz. I'm LOVING this style on the little girly girls. This particular Kimono was made with 100% cotton fabric from the Patty Young Playdate line and features gummy bears and lollipops. What girl is not going to go crazy for this yummy treats in this whimsy color combination.

I only have enough fabric left to make one additional kimono exactly like this one and right now I have it available to my current fans and followers to grab up before I post this for the rest of the World to see on Etsy. You can order your Kimono on the Facebook store. If you are not sure how to make the purchase, please contact me and I can walk you through. This dress will only be available in size 2T, 3T or 4T.

Gobble Gobble Gobble.....that's right, it's time to get ready for Thanksgiving! Custom orders take up to 2 weeks before they are ready for shipment. Keep that in mind when placing your order if needed by a certain date. The Turkey shirt and skirt set (pictured below) are available both on Etsy, as well as, facebook. Available in 24M, 2T and 4T, this set was created for the girl who refuses to wear anything but pink.
