He is Gone!

Well my son is gone to college now!ISmileyCentral.com guess you can tell I am missing him.I will be picking him up to come home for the fourth of July weekend.My other kids are going out of town for the fourth weekend.Me and my hubby thought we were going to have the house to ourselves for that weekend buuutttttt my teenager will be coming home!!

This is my son unpacking in his dorm.

Well I had been so busy getting things together for his open house.After the open house we had to take him to college that following week.This week I was able to squeeze some sewing and crocheting in.


Pattern: See& Sew B5201

Fabric: Cotton from Walmart 1.00$ a yard table.Color rust with white dots.

Notions: 20-22 inch invisible zipper.

Conclusion: When I saw this pattern I thought this was a cute and different shoulder strap dress.And you all know how I love an easy sew!I love how the gathers on this dress turn out.Doing the gathers was so easy.All you have to do is gather up the parts of the bodice and sew it onto the lining.Hope can understand what I am talking about.

Here's a picture of what I am talking about.


I started about two weeks ago on making my son a Afghan.I want to get it done for him for Christmas.

Yarn: Bernat satin

Color: sable

Pattern: no pattern doing this on my own.

I am trying to work on this at least an hour a day.

Well that's it for me!I hope everyone have a happy fourth of July!SmileyCentral.com

That will probably be me next year. Hopefully, I will convince him to go to a local school. I'm not ready for my little birdies to leave the nest.

Very pretty dress!

It must be so hard. Can't imagine; my DD attends the same university that I work for.

You look great in your beautiful dress.
