Little sewing!

I had a great weekend!My dd and I finally was able to wear our matching dresses to church this Sunday!Looking at the picture you can tell she was not happy about taking a picture that day!

See and sew B5201/ Butterick 3477

Well I did do a little sewing about a month.

Pattern: Simplicity 2961 project runway
Fabric: silk type fabric
size: 8
conclusion: I don't think my shirt came out like it looks on the pattern.The yoke that goes around the collar bone, mine looks a lot smaller than the picture.I did have some troubles getting the yoke and sleeve on.I took it a part about 3 times.Then I just had to go with what I had , because that silk was getting to many little holes in it with me ripping it a part so much.I am going to try making this top again in a cotton fabric to see if I could get it right.

Well that it for me hope everyone is having a great day!!Happy crafting!!

Some decorating!!

Last week my dd and two of my nieces spent a week down south with their Granddad.While she was gone I did some room changes since I lost a child to college!!Ha Ha!!Well I moved the two boys to his room and this left my dd with a room to herself.My boys was so happy to not be sharing a room with their little sister.Believe me she was glad to have her own room.Now it would be nice if she would sleep in it.She is still sleeping in the room with her brothers.The only thing she do in that room is play and tell her brother's to get out.I have hope that one day she will sleep by herself!

She is loving her room!It took me the whole week to decorate and paint that room,and I have the aching legs to prove it!

I have been doing a little sewing,I will post that later.I also have been working on my son's afghan, well somewhat working on it.I want to have it done by Christmas I guess I better get to working on it.

Well that's it for me hope you have a great day!
