pretty designs

Look at the pretty design I had left over after cutting out my facings the other day. I love kind of circular, symmetric designs. This especially applies to pretty sunburst-y things like these gorgeous sparkly underpass decorations I saw when I was in DC last weekend. So pretty and perfect for the space.

Birthday dress!

So I put off making that other garden dress until tomorrow and instead made one for me, because . . . it's my birthday! I made a new pattern which I almost goofed up. Who'd have thunk you needed so much allowance for pin tucks? But I got it fixed well enough and I think I know how to change the pattern for the shop now. This will be the weekend dress I believe. What do you think of it?

Anniversary no. 2

What a fun anniversary we had yesterday. I am so blessed to be with my fun, funny, sweet and super husband. Here are some snapshots of the day:

We picked strawberries at a berry farm a little ways out into the country. It was a gorgeous day!

Some of Paul's grandmother's doilies my mother-in-law sent us.

The front of the card my mom sent. So pretty and so true. It was a beautiful day!
