Fall Outfit for the Little Princess

Urban Cowgirl by Pink Fig - so excited to find these patterns as downloads now!  Her patterns are not really even "patterns" you have to trace off and cut out (which I hate doing), but measurements for rectangles you can crank out with a rotary cutter and a ruler - my kind of down and dirty sewing!

Corienne by Violet Field Threads - again, downloadable and beyond fun.

Can't wait to get working on new patterns from both of these designers - already downloaded Cosette and Bloomshine for some beach dresses next summer, though I guess a baptismal gown for the baby is really first on the list of sewing priorities now.

Feathering the Nest: The Nursery

 Beehive is woven from wreath vine from H*bby Lobby
I found the bench at a little used furniture shop, perfect!

A treasured gift, the shadow box is filled with verses and notes from the ladies in the Level 1 formation course I assisted with this past year.  The photo is a tradition with each baby, a photo of everyone's hands.  Hard to believe the "large" ones in that photo once belonged to my now 14 year old!

My favorite character  :)
