Is anyone out there??

Hey strangers, been a while, eh?? This last year has seriously been a blur...the first few months of my daughter's life I barely touched my sewing machine! We were just so busy getting to know each other there was little time...and when I did actually have time, well, I was either a) too exhausted to care, or b) the house was in such ruin that it needed my attention first. I really don't know how some of you do it, keeping up with house, work, kid, blog, etc...hats off to you!  Now that the bug is more independent I have been sewing quite a bit, and among some other things I am having SO much fun making dresses for her!

Here's two that I actually have pictures of (albeit terrible cell phone pictures) do I not take pictures of these things?? I think I've made 8 or 9 dresses now...some are really quick pillowcase dresses using old t-shirts of mine, others are more involved with patterns like the first one pictured, but they are still so easy to make, and pretty difficult to mess up...perfect for me! I think the most fun is picking out the fabrics, though.  SO many cute prints just begging to be turned in to little outfits!

Anyway, hope some of you are still out there, I miss my blogging land buddies and hope to get back to it.  I have a few exciting ideas up my sleeves right now that I'll share once they become a reality (but ya know I can't share too soon because then I'll be held accountable and I still want to be able to back out at the last minute if I need to, HA!)

  1. Welcome back!!!!!!! The dresses are adorable and so is that baby girl!!! What a cutie pie! I wish I had the motivation to make my one year old a dress! Seems daunting to me but anything non-quilting always does to me. Take more pictures of the dresses! Can't wait to see them all.
