In the Works {Sewing}

Life is slowing down nicely now that Brian’s out of nursing school and working as an RN. We’ve even had some nice evenings working together after the kids are in bed! Brian’s mostly been working on taxes but I’ve been sewing, sewing, sewing.

Have I ever told you how much I love sewing?? ๐Ÿ™‚

Today I have a number of things in the works but nothing ready to show you yet, so I thought I’d just give you a quick preview of what’s coming up.


I’m SO excited about sharing this newborn dress tutorial with you. I have the pattern piece almost ready to upload, but I’m having some trouble with the pdf printing correctly.

Not sure if it’s my printer settings, or if there is something wrong with the pdf itself.

Would anyone be willing to test the pdf pattern for me on your printer?ย That would be great. If so, just leave me a comment and I’ll get in touch.

This dress has been so much fun to work with, and I actually adapted the pattern from a dress I wore as a baby. Hence the name, Vintage-Inspired Baby Dress. I sometimes find it strange that something I wore as a baby is already considered vintage.

Sigh. ๐Ÿ™‚

In other news, I’ve been working with some of this beautiful fabric:

I love it so much I could almost eat it up. Ha. This, too, will become a fun tutorial, probably for next week.

And lastly:

I took this with my iPhone last night. Can you believe it?

I’m in heaven. ๐Ÿ™‚ ย I’ll keep you posted with these projects and tutorials.

Ok, more tomorrow. I’m headed out to pick up my boy from preschool. ย As always, thanks for taking the time to stop by and read, dear friends!
