Happy Tuesday!

I have been a sewing fiend. I only have one shirt to show for it. and its wrinkled. Cause I wear it! This weekend was a sew a thon. I love having an extra day off. It makes me feel like sleeping in and hanging out in the sun in the park are not a waste of time. Cause I have a WHOLE other day off to work! I did get another shirt finished and a shirt cut out. I felt pretty good about how I spent my weekend. I am working on another dress to have before I go home. The fabric is a tad expensive though and I need 3 yards. I have to wait until I have a little bit of extra money.

I got my sister's wedding invitation in the mail today! I am so excited. It is only a short time until I go back and see my fam and my little nephews. I am looking forward to it. It will be Ryan's first time meeting them. I am looking forward to seeing his family too! Even though we will only be there a short time.

This week is short and I can't wait for the weekend!

Don't worry, I get my camera back tomorrow...

Here is my 4 little curly buns! I did my hair fancy this morning. When I took it out this evening it looked awesome too! Yay for long hair. It has taken a long time to get to this point but I am definitely enjoying the longer hair. There is so much you can do with it! I wish I could french braid. I would love to do fun braid stuff with my hair. I have done the milk maid braids and that is cute, but I would like to do more.

This weekend I was super productive. Some times I just have it going on! I cut, measured, sewed, tried on, fixed and hemmed. The hemming is my very least favorite.

First, I sewed up my frankenstein sun dress. It is so cute on! A little big, but once through the wash and it will be perfecto!

Next, I cut up one of my gifted patterns and made a super cute skirt! I want to apologize for the awful pictures. Again, Ryan has my camera and so I am HURTING with these pictures but I really wanted to share.

Then I cut out another shirt and then I was shot. Tired, sleepy, sewed out. I am LOVING on sewing rigt now. So the rest of this week I am going to sew up that shirt, cut out another and keep my momentum going.

Yummy Fabric

I just got this amazing fabric from Lizzy House. Have you seen her stuff? She is awesome and this is super cute and I can't wait to use it! I am thinking a bow pouch and a pocket for a new shirt that I am sewing. I am LOVING sewing right now! Yay!

Thanks so much Cierra!!!

I came home yesterday after a LOOONG day at work to this...

I opened it up and died.

Now forgive me, I will get better pictures when Ry brings my camera back but believe me. It was filled to the brim with awesome.

Now I look like this:

I can't wait to make these!

I have been doing a lot lately that is not share-worthy. Like projects that don't work out, and dishes and all of that. We did have some guests and that was fun, but I always forget my camera. So far this weekend composed of:


Basketball watching.

and Sewing. A stack of bow pouches :) I am loving sewing these up.

This one is my favorite. It is the Alexander Henry owl fabric. I want to buy enough to make a whole dress. It is expensive though so I haven't yet.

I also cut out a dress. It is a frankenstein dress so we will see how it turns out. I am using a reissued vintage Butterick pattern and a new New Look pattern. I am going to smoosh them together and see what I get.
