Here we go...

Finally some pictures. Why is this always the hardest part?
These are some flannel pants for my friends 10 month old. I didn't make the jacket.
She has a top she will wear with it already.

I made two of these Lizzard flannel pants for my friends sons.
One pair is like this and the second pair has a dark blue cuff.

This is a birthday gift for my daughters friend tomorrow. I did the flannel pants and appliqued the top!

My friend invited me to Portrait innovations for photos. So I whipped up a new dress for Genesis. She didn't want to go with out a new dress. She picked the fabric!

It is made with McCall's 4504. I line the bodice.

I did a simple top square section and made a pony tail. Then braided the pony and put in a bow. She loved it!

This is a super twirly dress and very little girlish!

Here is the pattern up close!

Okay and this is an attempt to take a picture of myself modeling an apron that I made for my Mom. She is coming to visit me in two days. I used a combination of some fallish timeless treasures fabrics that I bought a few years ago.
This pattern had me challenged a few times. I think I will make some changes next time. I like the shape of it.

I am going to whip up some potholders out of some of the leftovers to match!!

Oh yeah. I have a coat cut out and made a pincushion and some other things not pictured yet!

I was visiting Bowznstuff blog the other day and started experimenting with Genesis hair for Gymnastics yesterday. I started like this,

then this

The side briads are wrapped around the bigger braid pony and pinned.
Her side braids came out after they did stretches.
Oh well!! SHE Loved it and we will try again. Now if I could only get her to where it up more!!

And now for some sewing updates

I have been sewing some.
Here is the Fire dress.

Genesis wants to be a firefighter when she grows up!

I found some flannel on sale at Joann's, so I made two flannel lounge sets. The tops are not made by me. I made two of the pink one's. One is for her friend.

A cute top I found at TJ Max to go with the flannel pants!! And it was only $4.00
Thanks Disney!

This one is Quilter's flannel. I think it will hold up better than the pink one. The pink is a snuggle flannel. Defiantly a cheaper feeling flannel.

Finally some updates!!

Here are some things we have been doing this summer.
Genesis was an Israelite in her dance recital. They danced to Pharaoh Pharaoh.
I didn't get one good group shot on stage...

Then she went to one of her friends recital.

We also did some babysitting...

at one of the VBS's the local Christian radio station set up a Party for them. That was alot of fun. They have the inflatable and food!
