This weeks projects

My good friend Tammie sent me this link for a onesie dress and I had to try it. For me being domestically challenged, it took me three tries to get it right. The first was horribly crooked and too short, the next one was so long I made C's four-year-old friend try it on over her pants and it fit perfectly, but the third time was a charm. It was a great learning experience for me to try out a ruffle and working with elastic for the first time.
Of course I took her to the Women's Broadcast in it and she lasted about 20 minutes before she had a blow-out and I had to take her home to change.

I also worked on some crocheted flower clips. The first step is to get your fabouslessly talented sister-in-law Emily to crochet the flowers for you (thank you!), then you sew on a button and glue to clip. How sweet is that!
And finally I had to get on record that someone other than me ate lettuce at my house. (You coudn't pay my husband enough to eat lettuce). But the other day we had a few friends over and they pulled some lettuce out of my garden and had a little "salad" snack. Notice how T wouldn't even touch the stuff.


  1. The flower clips look great! Glad I could help.

  2. Darling! I can tell that you are having fun dressing a baby girl!

  3. It is sad when the pickest eater in the house is the Dad. I asked Trent if they ever had fruits and veggies growing up, he said green beans,corn,apples with carmel dip. Wouln't you know that is the produce he eats.His salads are more cheese and dressing than lettuce. If we go out and he gets a salad I get to eat the cucumbers and tomatoes. Keep up the good work of exposing the kids to a different foods.

  4. Cute dress. I so would have wanted that when my girls were babies.
