dressin' it up

This is the dress I made. It was a lot more challenging than the shirt, but I'm really happy with how it turned out. It has pockets in the front, and darts and a zipper in back! Thanks to Kathleen for answering my panicked interfacing questions, and to Mom for walking me through darts. I think I will make a couple more of them and wear them all summer. This one is made out of a really comfy lightweight linen, which I'm really digging.... and I don't know why I'm making that face in the picture.

Pretty in Pink

After a week of being sick I thought Mariah and her baby
might feel better with new, pretty nighties!
Is there anything better then soft, snugly flannel
when you are not feeling well?!

Hawkeye Scarf

In Phoenix I spent a lot of time in a knitting store. While in the store I decided it would be fun to make some Hawkeye scarves. I went with the keyhole scarf, which Deirdre was kind enough to read to me over the phone. Every drive in Phoenix was over a half hour, so I had plenty of time to finish one of the scarves while on vacation.

Peekaboo Mittens

I'm over my fingerless gloves addiction, and I have moved on to creating cool mittens. These mittens are warm, but not bulky. There is a slit so you can slip your fingers out when you need to use your fingers.

Witness my pathetic first attempt at sewing partnered with my complete lack of taste. I *love* the rhinestones and can't believe I'd never used a hot glue gun before! Let me know if you want to borrow my "GeMagic" - a knockoff bedazzler. It's easy and fun. I hope this goes without saying, but this is my upgraded parade outfit :)

This is the table runner I made for Kathleen. It is mostly flannel... If you were to compare it to David's quilt you may find some fabrics in common...

Fun to do but there are definate changes that I would make in the future...

Carol did WHAT!?

So after drawing David's name for Christmas Carol decided she could quilt. It IS only sewing straight lines, RIGHT!? What's so hard about that?
She chose the fabric, flannel for the front and polarfleece for the back, and a pattern then went to work! She made some changes and a few mistakes but in the end it didn't turn out too badly! It covers our couch so it MUST cover David!

A little Raggedy

This was Mariah's choice for a Halloween costume... It turned out pretty cute, if I do say so myself... Gotta admit though, that wig is the strangest thing I have ever made!!!
