Saturday, March 19

So, Brenna has a beautiful new dress (for Easter) from Divine Miss Gammy :-) Brenna is in love with the pretty pink dress (and I hope I can get even more cute pictures of her in it :-) Thank you so much Gammy - this was just the type of dress Brenna wanted for spring (and thank you so much for saving me from needing to make her this type of dress - you are the best Gammy!!)

Brenna striking her favorite pose!

hmm - not sure if the toy story hat really fits with the dress - but she still looks adorable....
I have been crazy about making bags here lately (in case you missed that from all the bags I made for my friends baby shower). I loved the one I made in a tote so much (colors), that I made myself a new purse in those same colors. My poor sewing machine had a lot of trouble with all the layers on this bag (I went through a whole pack of jeans needles sewing it - I bent 5 of the needles, but luckily was able to bend the 5th one at the very end so I still have one jean needle left, lol). This bag pattern is from Amy Butler's new sewing pattern book (of bags).
The inside of the bag - already loaded up - I tested it out at the store yesterday - not sure how I am going to like having a magnetic snap closure - but I do like all my inside pockets. (it may only last the summer season - but hopefully I will enjoy how pretty it is for that summer :-)

Hello All!!!

Hope all is well out there! Things are good here. It was a fairly quiet week here - the biggest excitement was dressing in green for St. Patrick's day and the beautiful sunny weather that was here for Thursday and Friday. I made a new bag for myself this week - I like the style of the bag, but the thickness was almost more than my sewing machine could handle :-(
Brenna also enjoyed modeling her new pink dress from Gammy this week - she looks so adorable in it :-) THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!
Well, that is about all for now!
Take Care!
