Spring Sewing

I haven't posted in quite some time.  I have been sewing but not as much as norm.  I have been working long hours at the office.  During the month of February, I worked on some Christmas quilts for the kids.  Can't post the progress because they would see, but I have had a great time planning and putting this together.  I am not a seasoned quilter so this is a new adventure.

I had a great time planning the project below.  I was pulling fabrics out of the box and Angela(daughter) spotted the small green print and said that she wanted something for Lola.  I was not excited because it seemed very dull.  I visited several material shops looking for something to perk this up.  Success was found @ Heirlooms Forever in Tupelo.  They have a great group of employees and are teriffic help. Together we came up fabrics to make the green print look special.

I have made a few other outfits for all the others too, but they are pretty basic.

Lola will be in a dance recital this weekend.  I had to do some alterations to her costumes.  I took a snapshot, she is not a poser.....always looks a bit scared.  We will not be able to take flash photos at the recital so here she is.

I guess that we are ready for the performance.
