Fixed Living Room Curtains!

So, we have always had curtains in our house, but they've always needed a little TLC. I finally had the time to give them what they needed...

AFTERIt's nice, because now my kids can't pull on them just by sitting down...and the ribbons keep them closed at night so people can't sneak-a-peek :)

Halloween Treat Bags

I was doing some blog jumping this morning and found this SUPER cute tutorial on how to make something called an "Itty Bitty Poochie Bag" on Moda Bake Shop (here). I thought it was such a super-cute idea that I wanted to try them out for Halloween Treat Bags...

My kids absolutely love them and have been carrying them around all day long.

Now, to give you a sense of just how BIG these bags are...I put them next to a TYPICAL box of crayons....
They are just the tiniest little things - but so much fun. It took some time to pin and sew on the ribbon - but too cute, don't you think?!?!

I also decided to adjust the pattern just a bit to see if maybe I could make something that I liked a little better if it was bigger...
...to be honest, I think I still like the smaller one better... But, I can't decide!!!
Any thoughts?!?!

About a year ago, my mom got me this really awesome dress pattern that is a 1 piece pattern and reversible...

I love putting my baby girl in dresses way more than in jeans...even in winter-time! So, I have started to create a ton of these.

Here is the first of the "series" of reversible, fun, winter dresses :)

Quilt Festival Spring 2009

Although not my favorite quilt of ALL time - this quilt is dearly loved in our house!!

Last year, my husband's work flew him to Japan for 3 months...and I needed a project! So, I decided to make a quilt for my son who was 2 and just moving into a big-boy bed...
This is what I came up with...I get asked all the time about the size of the quilt...and I don't have the exact measurements...but it fits his bed perfectly...without hanging over on any side. This way, he makes his bed more often!

I like this quilt because it was fun to make, and even more fun to watch my son enjoy it...
