This set incorporates my favorite color combination, pink and green, with one of my favorite bird appliques. It's trendy but dainty. I think it will look so completely adorable on the little girl it is intended for. I'm going to make a few more of these I think, and you might even see a pair of pants, for yours truly, show up out of this fabric.

Spring Is Coming And Easter Sewing Is Underway!!!

7:02 PM Posted In , , , Edit This 0 Comments »

Gracie says (in her 6 years) this is the coldest winter she can remember, lol. Everyone in the Barrett house is looking forward to spring!!!! In anticipation, we have started the spring cleaning, which may never be finished, we bought white shoes for everyone under the age of 6 and perhaps the biggest hallmark of spring, I have started sewing the Easter Outfits.

Gracie's Easter dress is the first outfit to be completed. We do not go to a really formal church so I think this little dress will be perfect. I loved, loved, loved sewing this pattern. In fact, I already have different fabric to sew this same dress again. Can't have too much of a good thing I guess. She really likes it too. As you can see, she is striking one of her famous "Gracie Poses." I took about 10 pictures and this was the least crazy one of the bunch. Wonder if she is ready for the runway? I'll contact her agent ;)

Now, all I have left are the boy's outfits. They are going to be fairly simple green Jon Jon's that match the sashes in Gracie's dress. I will most likely monogram their names on them as well. I know my time is limited making the boys that type of outfit, *sniff* so I am getting it in while I still can.

Her First Date

Gracie went on her first date....................Are you wondering who the lucky young man was? It was her daddy. I can't believe she is old enough to be going to the father/daughter Valentine's banquet, but *sigh*, she is! It seems like yesterday we were rocking her, giving her bottles and changing her diapers.......wondering if she would ever sleep through the night, wondering if she would ever stop crying (colic). The list could go on. I always get reminicent around this time of year when she is about to be another year older and I wonder how another year has gone by.

I helped her do her hair and she picked out her own outfit. Her dad, determined to show her how a gentleman should act, came to the front door to pick her up, helped her get her coat on and opened all the doors for her.

Is it old fashioned? Maybe. Is it the way it should be, absolutely. Was it priceless? Yes.

What a night. They had a ball. And to think, in 7 short years she will be a teenager and a few years after that, she will be doing this for real.

Sweet Set

Wow, what a week! I was beginning to doubt my abilities as a multi tasker but at last, I prevailed. This is a bib and burp set made for a dear friend of mine's goddaughter. I just love how sweet pink gingham looks on white! It's classic and beautiful. I can imagine how sweet it will look on the precious baby girl it will be given to!
