Christmas Dress

I have been wanting to make a pillowcase dress for ages but have been too chicken to try... But as it turns out it was SUPER easy! I bought a yard of plaid Christmas material and only used about 3/4 of it. Also, I totally winged it. I didn't even get measurements. And it turned out perfect! All she needs now is a cream turtleneck and stockings!


I feel like such a bad friend. I really should be doing the quilt-a-long with Amanda. I need it for myself as well as to support her. But my stash is low and so is my cash at this point. So my thoughts are with her... Doesn't she do a great job?
I survived E's birthday and Thanksgiving. On Friday we start the Christmas parties... By the way... Thanks for all the great gift ideas. I am thinking of trying Wee Wonderful's Olive. Has anyone else out there attempted it?

Holiday Craziness

I need some ideas... I want to make a lot of presents this Christmas. I would like a list of quick and easy ideas... Any suggestions? Mostly for my friends ages 28-40. I am thinking bags, or something. Thank you...

oh where oh where have I been?

Well, have you ever had this panicky feeling when something totally unexpected happens? Like when your computer gets an awful yucky virus and your whole online world goes black, you feel so out of touch in almost every aspect of life.... and that was just 2 days! I sent my husband out to get a new computer tonight and now I am back! I have some swap goodies to show but that may have to wait a few days until I figure this new high tech thing out! Hang in there...

Baby Logan's quilt and more

I finally finished Baby Logan's quilt and delivered it to him last weekend. I love how it turned out and it was really fun give it to them. I had made the older kids flannel blankets when they were born but I wanted his to be extra special. I was in the waiting room and met his brother and sister just minutes after they were born but we moved away before Logan was born so I didn't get to meet him until this visit and he is almost 4 months old!

First knitting project without holes.... a scarf!
And last Friday, the day before our trip, I decided I needed a new bag to take... Here's what I came up with. I am not sure about the flower though, I may have to change it up to match better!

Big trips and computer problems

My son and I went on a trip to Memphis to visit some friends last weekend. We just moved north in April and we have only been down to visit one other time since. It was really nice... Baby Logan and his family loved his quilt which made me feel really good. We got to visit our old church and see almost everyone we wanted to. The only bad part is we woke up @ 4 am Saturday for a 6:45 am flight and then we were bumped (we fly stand-by) and didn't get into Memphis until 1 pm. It was a major bummer!
When we got back we had Parent/Teacher Conferences for M2. They went really well. I love his teacher!

And on top of all that busyness, our computer was down over the weekend! I think we are back on track though...
