My little sister Beth is due (any day now) with her first little baby boy. We are so excited and I was able to get this finished and sent off to her a couple of weeks ago.

This is my latest refashion. I of course forgot to take before pictures. The top of this dress was a shirt that I hardly wore and the bottom was a muumuu that I got at a thrift store. I chopped the bottom of the shirt off and the top of the muumuu off. I then sewed them together. I got some 2" elastic at the FIDM store a couple of weeks ago and thought it would be a good accent.

A friend of mine found this tutorial over at sew mama sew, on one of our craft nights we made them. It turned out cute. I decided to send this one to my sister Beth who has recently got into sewing.
A few months ago I was out garage saling with a friend and we can across some people giving away old books. I snagged these two old Japanese proverbs books. The other night I was browsing Etsy and found a cute ornament that I thought I could make myself. I also decided to make a cute heart ornament from a tutorial over at Kitty Baby Love in celebration of Valentines Day.

I made myself a new bag. This is the first time that I have used linen. I have to say that I LOVE linen but I also found that it can be a little tricky because it frays easily. I learned a lot by making this bag and I like the way it turned out.
