Where have I been???

Its been sorta busy and crazy here but its been fun as well.

I have been testing some patterns, both knit and sewing. Plus with all the canning, school starting, dance starting and yes soccer this year its been very crazy!!

First I knit up this adorable shrug for miss Araya, it will have a jumper dress to go with it for her birthday!

Then I tested another shrug pattern that will be for my niece for Christmas. It is by far my favorite and I can not wait to knit this one up for my girls as well. Completely adorable.

Then I sewed up the most adorable dress for Nevaeh, which is another tester for a friend. She has decided that things HAVE to be red, and she loves minnie mouse. More about this pattern when it is released because it is so sweet to sew up and so simple as well.

I also have a sweater on the needles right now for Nevaeh to wear this fall and you guessed it, it has red in it as well. I am hoping to have it finished up this week so that she can start to wear it!

Soccer has been a blast, Araya loves it, and her latest game she scored 2 goals. You go girl!

So I am staying busy, I have 2 more patterns I will be testing the beginning of October, Araya's dress for her birthday to sew up plus Halloween costumes in October. Then its into Christmas gifts from there. I have big plans if I can get them done, so we shall see!


  1. Oh I LOVE that shrug!!! It is just perfect! I wish I could knit!

    And I love your "Daddy's Girl" dress. I am just finishing the blouse for "School Girl" today. I had better get off the computer and back to sewing so I can send my results off to Laura.

  2. Love the dress! And the colors/fabric! Very good job, mama!

  3. You have been busy. Everything looks so good.
