Dancing Queen and Puppy Pillow

Today I finished sewing Wesley's puppy neck pillow to use in his car seat while he sleeps. It's a little big now, but he will be able to use it for a very long time.
I also took some video of his dancing skills. Enjoy!

I Love Custom Orders!

I love sewing custom orders for family and friends!

Here is the latest custom order for Bev's granddaughter and her new baby girl! I thought it came out so well so I thought I would share. Most of the fabric is from Michael Miller by Sandi Henderson with some Heather Bailey and Moda as well. My favorite new change is a gap in the sewn handle of the diaper bag to add a baby ring for attaching stuff. Feel free to let me know what you think and please keep me in mind next time you need a baby shower gift!


If you look closely you can see another sewn line in the handle just under where the handle flaps down. That is where a plastic baby ring can be attached!

Pockets! Five in total with a magnetic snap closure.


Diaper wipes holder and two burp cloths.


Minky backside of the lovie with ribbon tags.

Front of the lovie with a minky rose in the middle. The cool think about these roses is that they look better after washing.

Parker County Peach Festival 2009

It was hot hot hot...over 100 degrees, but an overall success. It is weird how somethings you think will sell don't and others are well loved. At lease people liked my onesie tie design.

4th of July

Fourth of July. Ok, so I'm only a week and a half behind, that's not so bad. We celebrated the fourth with neighbors across from Bryce and Carmen's house. The food was good and there was a big blow up waterslide, but the best part was the fireworks. Love Texas (you can buy the really big ones here). So just before 9pm, when it starts to get dark, we started the exploding extravaganza. Over two hours later we were finished. The coolest part is when you and your other neighbor set off kabooms at the same time. It is almost like being at a fireworks show. On Sunday we continued the celebration by watching 1776.







Happy Birthday Taryn! Did you get my text?
