I got a model!

There have been some questions about "children"from yesterday, lets just clear that up! NO, I don't want to have children any time soon (maybe not for 10 years!), I just wanted children to make things for! So, little Jolee, a child of a friend came over to take pictures. When she wants, she is one of the cutest little girls, but when she doesn't....oh's gonna have her hands full with this one. Anyways, I had her dress up to take pictures of the dresses, and she told me very frankly which ones she wanted to wear, and which she didn't! After some coercing from Mom and a little bribe from me, we finally got her into everything (and of course she loved them). The new pictures are on the slide show...but here is a really cute one:

Other than that, I have been busily working on finding new patterns for my dresses, and embroidering different things for people. I found this wonderful polka-dot pattern for a Fourth of July outfit. The new dress pattern is to the left :)

Most of my free time was spent organizing my mothers classroom (she is a teacher as well - for those who don't know), chasing Bailey back from the neighbors house, and helping my 83 year old grandpa get on facebook. He loves the internet so its hilarious to invite him to new frontiers. I don't know if he understands that his facebook and email are seperate yet, guess that comes with time.
Off to create...bye for now!

whew....what a long day

So this is my first venture on a blog, so please, please be patient with me! The past couple of days I have gotten a lot of inspiration to set up an etsy shop, create logos, start a blog, all the while trying to sew many different projects. Now, keep in mind, this was all done while visiting my parents (they may have think I've moved in) who love my work, but are a little hesitant about other things.

Anyways, I've been hacking away at the computer, so much that Bailey (yes, the store is named after my poodle!) has started to lay across the keyboard and lick my arms feriociously! I can't figure out if he is jealous of the computer, or is boycotting Facebook and blogspot. Of course, he always gets his way, so there have been many Bailey initiated breaks.

Anyways, I made several dresses yesterday, so much that I know the measurements and cuts by heart now! I love making the dresses becuase they almost come alive after the last steps are complete. If only I had children to make them for :)

Other than the dresses, embroidering has keep me extremely busy. After finally convincing my boy friend that monograms WERE awesome, I bought some new towels for him and made them really pretty! I have also been working on making monogrammed bows to match my dresses, those are still to come though! So long for now, check back for more pictures and events!
