Little French Dress for sale.

Sorry it has been so long.  My Classical Conversations community doesn't end for the holidays until next week so it has been a busy time preparing for company, violin and art lessons, and school!  Next week we finish up and I'm ready to spend the month of December creating all the things I plan to give as Christmas gifts this year and enjoying time at home with the kids without the pressure of getting school work done. 

The boys have been busy creating decorations for the Holidays.  They made a couple scarecrows for Thanksgiving and started on bird house ornaments with daddy today.  They turned out really cute.  They have a tree in their room this year and I'm a little jealous of how nice it's looking filled with handmade ornaments.  I'll post pics soon........

Yep, that's my Mason.  It took lots of bribery to make this happen but I needed to check my sizing on someone! 

He ended up making the best of it and did a little modeling for me.  They are never going to forgive me for this when they get older!  Nate had to try on a few as well.......hehe....

I've also decided to sell a few French dresses this month.  I need to clear out some fabric to make room for new fabric and I'm raising money for a program to help me make more professional sewing patterns so I can share this super cute pattern I created with everyone.  The sizes I will be selling will be 12months to 6-7.  They will most likely be one of a kind since I'm creating from my stash and all the fabric will be designer quilt fabric.  Nothing from Joanne's or other discount fabric stores.  I will post more soon!  I hope you had a blessed Thanksgiving!

Little Fall Dress

It has been a busy time around here.  Projects, Fall fun, and more projects.  I'm also still working to correct the Little French Dress pattern.  I made Madeline the 3T-4T size out of some of Heather Ross's linen fabric with a light pink vintage lace at the bottom.  I love this fabric but I feel like the dress needs more vintage lace and some pockets.  It is also a little big on her which means my sizing is just about right for this pattern.  

The weather here is amazing.  Warm and breezy one day and cold enough for a fire the next and as much as I love teaching my children and watching their minds and hearts grow with books I know the real lessons come from exploring God's gifts in nature so during this time of year we let God teach.  Pin It
