I want to win one of these! Grosgrainfabulous.blogspot.com is hosting a giveaway!

Forever and a half...

So i have been a lazy blogger... i am not good at keeping up with things like this where I have to put entries in... i.e. diary, journal...etc, just has never been a consistent thing for me...

Even though I have not been blogging, i still have been crafty! I have made a really cute dress from Craftiness in not optional blog... it turned out pretty cute, however, I did not have access to a zipper ( I live in Italy, so no Joann's unless I order online!)... so i didn't totally finish it... the arm holes were a smidge tight too for Deanna so it wasn't the perfect fit... but it was still really fun to make!

I have been making my diaper wipe caddies! They are so cute! I have been fabric mod podging the material to give them a wipeable surface and then making cute elastic ruffles to hold diapers to the front...

I have scrapped quite a few pages for Deanna's baby book... forgot how fun it is! I need to finish a few more pages to get caught up to the present...

I have been nesting like crazy getting ready for this new little bundle of love that will be here any minute! I can't wait to hold a new baby again in my arms! I truly hope not to regret our decision to only have two babies! I think realistically though for us, two kids is good for us... especially financially :)

I am excited b/c I was able to help my non sewing friend by hemming and creating a new wider curtain rod casing on her curtains... I totally did a good job and for sure have the confidence to make our own curtains... perhaps I foresee a drive to Ikea to go get some cute fabric! In my head actually I am toying around with ideas to create Deanna's big girl room once we move her in September.... Fun times... I need to start putting an inspiration board together to put all my thoughts in one place...

Sewing is getting so much fun and easier everytime I do a new project...  I have been meaning to make some of Char's Ruffle butt onesie for the blog Crap I've made... they look so cute and so damn easy!

So that's my long lost post for now... maybe in another three months i'll write another :)

Cute smock dress

For my weekly project, I finished this cute little smock dress for Deanna.  I am still working with the book, One Yard Wonders, which gave me the pattern and all the sewing details. I learned for next time when gathering to measure it in advance both on where I am connecting it, as well as the item I am gathering...I also learned to do more than one gathering stitch in case the thread breaks! Lesson learned! Final product = CUTE!!

Now it's time to buy some more cute fabric!

Ciao for now! Beth

Fantastic Friday!

What a great day today was! The sun was shining and I was super productive in my own right :)
Yesterday in the mail I received my package from Skye Reve Fabrics ~ Which jump statrted my day to create a little gift for my 2 year old nephew Quinn.  With the help of the book, "One Yard Wonders", I made this cute little tool belt apron in less than 2 hours (new record for me!)
It has a pocket with several "slots" for his tools :) 

Here is my sweet little distracted 17 month old model :) 

Yesterday, I also finished making the birthday crown for our sweet little friend John Collin. His first birthday is coming up this week.  I hope the crown fits his head! I went off average head sizes for 12 month olds... we'll see... I need to come up with a way to make the crown adjustable... maybe if I make a buttonhole and button??

When checking my blogger dashboard yesterday, I saw this easy breezy slow cooker recipe from the cute blog MyHappily Ever After.  Dinner was super easy and so yummy! Loved it... even better that we now have leftovers!

Yay for fridays! Enjoy the three day weekend!

Ciao for now! ~ Beth
