WOW we had some really bad storms here yesterday.Alot people had trees that had fallen in their yards.We had winds in some areas that was 60 mph.My two younger sons was scared so they went to the basement.It started clearing up about 10:00 last night.

I made this dress for my soon to be 5 years old niece for her birthday.This was a super simple halter dress with a scarf.It is Simplicity 5531.

We're expecting those exact storms this afternoon-I always worry about the trees out front.

The dress is adorable!

Your niece's dress is just too cute!

Where are you from again? The northwest? I used to live in Vermont where most houses have basements too. We got a lot of thunderstorms there in the summer. I loved watching them as a child. In some parts of NC, we get rain, but it doesn't really storm here like it did in Vermont.

Thanks for leaving a comment in my blog. It's a nice bag you have. I agree that the lining inside is pretty and it's kind of a surprise to see a different color inside.
