Sweet Findings and Simple Joys

Where have you been?!  

A great questions that many have been asking---including myself.  With the start of another new school year, preparing for our new little pup (did I mention we are getting Hoss on November 3rd?!) and trying to find time to keep  my house clean, my sewing was put on hold for awhile!

Of course that all changed with having MEA break this week.  Finally, finally, finally I was able to wake up, get my cup of coffee, and head upstairs to my sewing retreat for some much  needed creative sewing time.

Here's just a little sneak peak at some of the things I have been up to.  

I love the original post it left by my mom from so many years ago

Over the summer I helped my mom clean out the basement, and while we were going through things we came across some old sewing patterns that my mom used to make clothes for me when I was a little girl!  I thought it would be fun to recreate some of the old patterns and then possibly find pictures or the actual outfits my mom made and post them.  

I can still remember wearing an outfit like this when I was 3!

The Result
