Something to Do While It’s Quiet

I just wanted to warn you that it’s going to be a little quiet here for the next month or so.  I’m taking a little break from updating this ...

Pretty in Purple

I had meant to post this yesterday, but never got around to it.  I got sidetracked from my list (again) and made another one of my dresses and wore it to church.

I guess it came out okay, I got a lot of compliments about it and the dress itself.  Someone asked me if I would make them one (again).  This time it was for a relative of theirs, a 4 year old who loves princesses.  Too bad I am still not very confident about making these kind of things for others.  Nothing worst then disappointing a little girl because the “really pretty dress” is too small.  The oddest comment I got was from a kid I know who thought I looked like Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz.  I think it was a compliment.  What was cute was how shocked and impressed he was when he found out I made this.  I guess there is hope for future generations.
