First day of School... a few Days ago

Maybe I'll remember next year when school is approaching to check the battery in my camera.  I didn't do that this year.  The three pictures I got weren't that great, but at least the moment was documented:

Yep, I made that dress.

Allyson starts Kindergarten tomorrow!  Holy crap!  She's super excited, but I know once we walk in the doors she's going to clam up.  At the Open House yesterday the librarian tried talking to her and she stared at her like she was the devil. 
She said what she's looking forward to the most is Lunch.

I couldn't sleep last night thinking about taking her to school.  I think it's going to suck tomorrow for about an hour then life is going to be sweet.  But untill then I'll stress and worry.

W I P Wedensday #7

(and sold)
   A set of owls!  I think they barely pass as owls.  They were supposed to be bookends, but they aren't that heavy and one likes to lie down more than stand up. 

Started and Finished::
Here's skirt and leggings (not meant to go together) for Allyson

I cut up a t-shirt and made some jammie pants for Molly.  They are a little bit low-rise, but that's fine for jammies (I guess).

This is a cute little jumper for Molly.  It's corduroy and lined and has a zipper and pleats and everything!  I'm super impressed with myself on this one.

I was forced to make a bag for my quilt in progress.  Scott was sick of it just being thrown on the couch.  So now it's in a cute bag!

What!? That's so many things!  ...Oh, yeah, I skipped a week.

Still Going or Projects in Pergatory (or maybe Limbo):
Zelda Quilt
Scrppy Squares Quilt
One last set of owls

I haven't put these away, but they just aren't on the top of the list for now.  I'm doing a lot of clothes sewing for the girls so we can be ready for school days.  I'm wondering how homemade clothes will go over in Kindergarten...  maybe nobody will know!


This dress is SO close to being finished... it's just really hard to get Allyson to try things on for fit.  This might be the first day of Kindergarten dress.

This will be that shirt for Allyson.  Those are the last scraps of that material.  Not too bad:  I got two shirts and a skirt out of it and the two fabrics cost me a total of $4!

Last week's total: 5
Finished this week: 6
New this week: 7
This week's total: 6
