Moments after I took the above picture of Grace in the A-line dress she got dry erase marker on it. Black dry erase marker to be more specific. I immediate went to work on it trying to get the stain out. I got it to fade, but dry erase is synonymous with permanent. Oh well. I mean I did make the dress for a four year old, so what did I expect!?! I think I expected at least one wear out of the dress before it got stained.
But I'll get over it.
As for the back of the A-line dress, here's a pic for you!
The pattern called for elastic cording and a button to close. I used the patterns placement for the button and cording, but it was all wrong. Next time I'll just place it closer to the neckline. I also had to use bias tape for the cording because I only had black elastic cording, and that just wasn't going to match!
This weekend I started it of by making the most delicious whole wheat pizza. The Italian is bit of a health nut, so I've been searching for a good whole wheat pizza dough that tastes as good as white dough. I think I've found it.
I'll post the recipe another night. I have to wake up early tomorrow. Sorry!
Next I made another bow pillow. Remember when I made this one? I've been wanting to make one for myself since I saw the cute one I made for my mom at her house. I thought it would be the first thing I made when I got home from my vacation in the South. Guess that didn't work out the way I thought it would!
Maybe a bit too much to have the brown animal print next to the black and white one??
I'm almost done with making pillow for my couch. I have a rectangular pillow form that I want to make a cover for, but I just haven't been hit with the inspiration of what to do to it. Stay tuned!
I didn't make this next item, but I'm so excited it arrived in my mailbox on Friday. It's another B to add to my B wall. I found it here. I love my new B, and if you want a letter or two for yourself just know that shipping is free!
Lastly I whipped up a quick banner tonight for a friend. Just a little *celebrate* love being spread from the west coast MOM headquarters.
And that's all! I'm off to bed right at midnight. That's early, right??
