Happy 'late' Thanksgiving!

My sewing machine is mad at me... I haven't paid it any attention for almost a full week.

Soooooo... you can imagine how behind I am.
With Christmas presents, Christmas outfits, and etsy orders... I am really swamped.

Here are some adorable outfits I made and was saving to post until Thanksgiving (which was unbelievably wonderful!) Thank you, thank you, thank you to my wonderful family for making it so great!



I had the great pleasure of testing this pattern for Ashley over at lilblueboo- and I just love how it came out. I am also so glad for the extra length so the girls can wear them next year, too!

The applique on the pockets is from Lynnie Pinnie- which I think is sooo funny.
She offered it as a freebie on sewforum and out of all the pumpkin appliques I own (which is many) I liked her free one the best! Thank you so much Lyndsie!

All of the fabrics for these dresses came from Hancock Fabrics.






and of course, they had to have some matching bows. I made these using Lisa's pumpkin hair pretties! Aren't they perfect!!!!



When William saw the dresses, he was mad at me for not making him anything- so I whipped up this little shirt using the tie applique from ggdesigns... which..... I know. is too small on him. But, he loved it... so I don't care!

These pictures are for all of you who think my kids are photogenic..... ha.








now, tell me... how am I going to juggle all this sewing I have to do and balance that with all the Christmas movies I have to watch on the Lifetime channel?
