Handy Mommy

Sew I've been busy.... Get it?!?!?! Because I've been busy sewing. {hmm, maybe I've had too much codine-laced cough syrup lately. I've been really sick recently too.}

Anyway, when my mom was here {weeks and weeks ago for a short visit from the not-so-main-land} we had our usual sewing get together with the ladies. I picked up a couple new patterns and some fun fabric and began whipping this little number up. It was super simple, but really quite fun.

I really stepped out of my comfort zone here. For some reason, clothes scare me to death. I don't understand half of what the directions direct, so I usually abandon the pattern shortly after reading through it. I had lots of help nearby this time. Thanks to mom, Auntie Jill, and Auntie Cathy I finally finished my first attempt at clothes.

Now if the snow will hold off long enough for Adjoa to wear it a little, that would be truly awesome!


Here's a close-up of the apple on the little apron. I loved the cute "A". 'A' for apple, and of course, 'A' for Adjoa!

If you ever get bored, please come to my house and help yourself to my fabric stash! That is the cutest dress, and I love the apple too.

Adjoa looks so cute and proud in her new dress her mommy made!! I love the colors on her too. Fun! I can't even sew the elastic on my girls ballet shoes....keep poking my finger and it bleeds, and the stupid needle doesnt even go through. I can't sew...YOU CAN! You go girl!

Wow what a beautiful dress, Adjoa is darling. I love how you have her hair done too.
