Call me Grandma

I have been having two things on the top of my "bucket" list for a long time - a trip to Italy and granchildren. I had the opportunity to travel to Italy this past Maywhile there received the news that I am going to be a grandma in mid January. Yesterday we found out it is a girl!!! Time to start sewing!!!!

Football Season Approaching

My "adopted" grandchild is having her 3rd birthday party this weekend. I decided to make her something for the upcoming football season. I made the Riley top and Karen Capri Pants for her LSU outfit and McKensie dress for the Saints. I decided her little sister needed a matching LSU dress so I made one for her also.

The fleur di lis fabric is a new print by Fabric Finders in black & gold and purple & gold. The coordinating fabrics are also Fabric Finders.

Customer Creations - Betsey/Joey Shorts and McKensie Dress

Here are a couple of pictures I got today from a customer using the Betsey/Joey Shorts Pattern and McKensie Dress Pattern.

The coordinating applique is a nice touch to make the outfit complete.

This dress is a great canvas for embroidery as you can see. Love the ladybugs.
