Halloween is here!

Halloween is here! WOO HOO! Things will be a little different this year because hubby and I are heading out of town for my high school reunion. I hate that they picked Halloween weekend, but oh well!

The girls had to dress up for dance so we took a few picks and my oldest son had to dress up for cub scouts, we go. See if you can guess who they are.

Did you get them? My oldest is a Dallas Cowboy football player (pretty easy), my son is Mario and my youngest is Fancy Nancy. Not everyone knows who Fancy Nancy is, so we got a lot of confused looks and questions about what "kind" of princess is she?

My youngest son had a party at school today so hopefully I will get to add his pictures later.

I'm off to wait in line for the dreaded flu shot. UGH! Have a great weekend!

Halloween Party and New Christmas Designs

Halloween is almost here and that means the annual Halloween Party my son's school puts on. The kids had a great time playing games, jumping in the bouncy houses and riding the horse.

I also had a little time this week to make a few new skirts. These will be for sale on my etsy site soon, or you can contact me for info.

The first is the Christmas Snowflower twirl skirt with white underskirt. I LOVE this one!

This one is the Jewel Tones twirl skirt with white underskirt. I adore this fabric. It's so cool and mod.

Okay. I'll close for new. This will be a super busy week with doctor's appointments and parent/teacher conferences, but I'll try and get a few more Christmas items done. I'm working on a sweet knot dress for Christmas.

Have a great rest of your weekend!

The H1N1 virus invaded my household several weeks ago and wreaked havoc on my household, but FINALLY everyone is well again. So, I'm back to sewing and Box Tops and baseball, etc. Life has finally returned to normal, well MY normal anyway.

Last weekend was the 2009 International Quilt Market in Houston, so I have spent the last week researching the best new fabrics coming out and I am sooo excited! Paula Prass has a gorgeous new line coming out called Woodland Delight.

Amy Butler's Love

and Pillow and Maxfield's new Large Whimsy - GORGEOUS!

as well as MANY others by Heather Bailey, Sandi Henderson and the list goes on and on. I can't wait to get my hands on some of these new fabrics.


We'll now take a break from my desires and focus on what I have done this week. Please excuse these horrible pictures! I desperately need a new camera and a new model - or at least one that hadn't just woken from a nap!

Again, please excust this horrible blurry picture! These were done for a great friend.

and my model in Heather Bailey Freshcut Big Ruffle pants! LOVE THIS FABRIC!

and another bib and burpie special ordered for a friend

And I thought I didn't get much accomplished this week.

This was a special order for her daughter's birthday. It was done a few weeks ago, but it turned out so cute I just had to share it. Sorry it's not being modeled but since it was an order, I didn't want my model to wear it before the birthday girl! It's reversible with pink dot on the back. TOO CUTE!

Gotta get busy this week though. Getting ready for the big Holiday at Hurricane Christmas show! Gotta get to sewing!

Have a great week everyone! Smooch on your babies! They grow up way to fast!
