Happy Thanksgiving!!

Today is Pie Day! The day we make all the pies. Except this year my kids are in school today, so I'm delaying pie day a little to do most of the baking in the afternoon.
Last year's Cherry. my favorite!

Dress Mash Up - Take 2

I sewed up another dress for Meredith using the pattern I made from our first Dress Mash Up. I made a few alterations in the pattern for this one. We totally love how it turned out!! Isn't the fabric fabulous? She picked it out from Girl Charlee.  It's one of their Ponte de Roma knits.

Fabric finds

I totally forgot to show you my Sample Spree scores from my recent Quilt market trip. Sample spree is an event where some of the fabric manufacturers and vendors at quilt market get a chance to sell some of their goods at wholesale prices for shops to purchase for sample making and such.  Some of the tables have swarms of people around them until they just sell out.
