I was ask to make a bishop smock dress for an upcoming baby. I have completed this and sent this to the newly arrived Ellis Elizabeth Andrews(Ellie). Maybe I will be able to share a picture of Ellie in this dress soon.

I have not updated in several months. I have been very busy and not had time to sew. I am back in the saddle and still experimenting and learning about my new Brother 1500 Embroidery/sewing machine. I find that there are many cute patterns for applique and I really enjoy the creativity that this allows. I have completed several fall items that I shared below. These were done for my 3 grandchildren and when the Moms get me a picture of them I will certainly share that because they will show up much cuter.(I'm just a little proud.)

Saturday's Market was fun. I enjoyed meeting the variety of market goers. Thanks to all who stopped by to visit my tent. Your interest was great and I received several good request and comments. I will probably return to the market later in August. I want to try and get some fall items completed before I return.

I am adding some pictures of items that were at the sale but have not been on the blog.

This first picture is a 3-tier ruffled top, with crop pants. This was made by a size 3 pattern but this pattern seems to run large. I think that you might really consider it a 4.

The little overalls are in a soft lime green with pink fish. This is a size 2 and it is true to size.

The lollipop sundress was in another posting with only a back view. This is a very soft-cool dress and it is a size 1-2.

The little watermellon print overall dress can be worn as a sun dress or would move into the fall with a little white t-shirt just great. It is a size 2.

This last picture is a "Sister" dress to one that was in an earlier post. The dress styles are the same, traditional wrap back sundress, and the panties are from the same fabric. The dresses were both made with butterfly themed prints, with the dominant color of orange. One is a size 2, the other a size 4.

All of the items that I have available have been included in a posting. I will continue to post as items are complete.

I probably will not get much done this week because my son and his wife from Texas are coming for a visit. We do not get to spend much time with them and it will be great to have them home.

I will be checking the comments and/or email if you have some news for me.

Thanks for visiting.

I have completed 2 outfits for little boys, both size 2. These are just a couple of patterns that I will be working with in the future. The first is a cool cotton airplane print shirt with green houndstooth plaid shorts.

The romper is fully lined with a machine embroidered Sailboat on nautical print.

A closer view of the lollipop fabric made into a bubble sunsuit.

Size 1 bubble suit, buttons in the back.

I have not been sewing today. Just getting started in the blog world to share my experiences in sewing. I have many ambitions with this sewing venture and I am really jumping around. I want to be in touch with others to learn how and what they are sewing, and get comments and suggestions for improvement on my projects. I have made several items that I am going to include in a community market this weekend.

My logo NanaDidIt was coined by by 2 year old granddaughter, Lola. She is here with her twin brother Julian. When people would ask her about her clothes, she would tell them NanaDidIt!

I created two different labels for the clothes that I made. You will be able to see the label on the first picture below. The others are just a sample of the clothes that will be at market this week.

I have made a couple of the typical wrap back dresses, just used the bold fabrics and ribbons instead of buttons.

I will post more as I get the pictures ready. I have not done many for little boys as it is hard to find fabrics that I feel appropriate and unusual for toddler boys. I am trying to do my shopping in the neaby stores to support the local merchants.
