Evangeline in some pretty dresses!

A long time ago on my old blog, I posted photos of some of the dresses my Momma had made for me that we were saving for future babies :) I'm so blessed to see my own sweet daughter in these beautiful creations.




My Momma and I have now decided to try to make some new ones for her, working together! :) Lord willing, we'll pass these down too!

Some Much Needed New Kitchen Sheers


Are finally done! I got these sheers, meaning to use them in our front room, last year sometime when a locally Pottery Barn closed. They were clearanced out to very inexpensive, so after lots of digging through bins, I found the right ones. Well... weeks later, when I opened them... one had a hole. One was mismarked size-wise. Sigh. I was so frustrated, I put them away for many months! But we needed some new kitchen sheers, and I finally drug these back out and with much size adjusting, here are the lovely finished products! I'm very happy with how they turned out. I also finally found the right pillows for this seat. It only took me 2 years :) Well... slow and steady wins the race! Hee hee.

A couple new things...

I haven't been sewing as much as I should be, but here's two things!

A big toddler-sized blanket for Gigi's house :) Gigi picked out the fabric.


And new blackout curtains for Evangeline's room. Blackout curtains= very expensive! Blackout fabric= very cheap! :) You can't see them very well, but they are inside the sheers.


A little picture of me and the little Miss at the Botanical Gardens- such a pretty time of year to go- perfect weather and beautiful flowers!
