Two More Tank Tops

And with that, I’m done with the fabric stash contest!  I’m sooooo far from the people who will be winning but I knew going in that this would happen.  Still 15 yards on a total stash of 150 yards?  That’s

KCW: One Last Thing

This week?  Was not a good week for productivity.  I had the girls with me most of the time on top of a to do list a mile long.  I had to go to bed way too late to get this

A Princess Dress

I’ve made maxi dresses for E but I haven’t even considered it for V.  She’s not quite 4 years old and I still don’t think she knows how to manage all that material without tripping over it.  But she really

A Bunch of Leggings

Not the most exciting thing but it’s what the girls wear the most. V’s leggings being mostly hand me downs, they were developing holes.  Sure, I mend them, but it’s nice to have some that don’t have parches all over.

Photo Monday – The Guggenheim

I actually tried to get the classic Guggenheim picture, inside and out.  I only had my 50mm lens though and the angle wasn’t wide enough.  I should have taken my other one with me, the 18mm-55mm zoom.  The quality isn’t

Stash Busting Peasant Top

I’d forgotten about this fabric.  It’s navy cotton eyelet with a scalloped selvage.  I’ve had it for at least two years.  I fell in love with it on, uh, fabric.com, I think?  I had to have it so I bought

Two Pinwheels

I’ve had this plaid/gingham cotton double gauze in my stash for over a year.  Two years maybe?  3 yards each of two colors.  To make each souricette an Oliver + S Pinwheel Dress and Tunic set.  And I finally did
