|This picture sums up my children. I love it.|
Since she's my first/only girl, I went proverbial crazy with the sewing. I never do a lot, but I should do more! I love it!
At market this past spring, I met Vickie from Dinky Babies. She has the cutest doll patterns ever. Her booth was across from ours, so I spent the entire market staring at them. haha. I just had to have one! And since I have never done any sort of soft sculpting before, it took awhile. And a lot of help from my mother, who I'm pretty sure is so tired of having me crash at her house every moment my sewing machine comes out.

Awhile ago, I came across Sew Sweet Patterns, a little pattern shop on Etsy. They are a mother/daughter team too! I love that. I love their patterns because they take 2.5 seconds to make, and I don't need my mother to help me finish it. (that might not be entirely true, as I just realized she gave me some cute snaps for the back of the dress)
And I had to use Sarah Jane fabric (Michael Miller). I'm totally obsessed with anything Sarah Jane. I could have bought the entire bolt in the entire line. I'm not *that* crazy.

And my mother made her the most adorable knitted sweater and hat I have ever seen. I wish I could knit like my mother. I can do the whole knit/purl thing, barely, but I'm not even 1/3 of the way finished with the scarf I started over a year ago.
She also made the boy this darling hat. They both adore hats. He never takes it off!
I really want to make this balloon wreathe, but I had no time. Next birthday for sure. What a fun tradition! That was found via pinterest. This is an addiction for me. I've even started a "wreath" board. It's getting ridiculous.
