Don't let her fool you she it just playing opposum, I think Nonnie's sewing time has just got cut in half. Little miss Mylee is a little fussy and her mommy is starting back to work next week. She stayed with me alittle while this afternoon and she would fall asleep I would lay her down and those big blues would pop open and she would start her little fussy noise she makes till Nonnie picked her up again. Oh well I would rather be snuggling this precious one than sew any day.

New chest for my patterns, it came from my son in law which is kind of a funny story, he purchased this when he was on base for a tv cabinet the funny part is it is a changing table/chest little did he know just a few short years later he might need a changing table. When they had the new baby she got all new furniture so I got the chest.
Everything is folded nicely oh how I wish I could keep it this way.

I found a shirt on the Ragsland site that I really like it is called the Bertha blouse I think, so I sat out a few nights ago to reproduce it. So far I haven't got the look that I was going for but after posting on my sewing forum I think I might have a pattern that will work. This one is too full for my liking but will be fine for a dress for one of the girls. I am going to make a pair of pants from the cordury stripe to match.
The last few days have really been flying by. Mom is home from Texas which is a good thing, but has required more of my so little free time. Today I carried her to the heart doctor and she got really sick while we were there the doc order some test and hopefully we will get the results quick. I have been doing some sewing at night and fabric shopping on the web too. I got several pieces of stretch knit that I am going to make up for the girls this fall. The girls and Natalie and me went to Billie's Heirlooms yesterday and I got some more fabric so I think we are good for awhile in the fabric department anyway.

Fall Fabric!! My favorite time of the year. The girls and I are already planning our trips to get apples, going to the fair in Cullman and of course the pumpkin patch. This year is going to be such fun now that the older two are bigger they will really enjoy themselves.
This pattern is CeCe by Children's Corner the knit came from Hobby Lobby and was on sale for just $3.99 a yard so here's a $4 dress. I really like a heavy weight knit but for the money I think it turned out cute.
