A move, a monster, and a baby

Well, it has been a ridiculously long time since I last blogged or, honestly, crafted anything. We have been busy buying and fixing up our first home. Couple that with my kiddos (one that is firmly planted in the beginning stages of the terrible two's) and being generally tired from growing a tiny human, sewing and the like has fallen off of the to-do list. I took a day to do nothing, as my 5 year old suggested, and found myself seeking out several sewing tutorials. This lead to an 8 pm run to our local Joann's, that is now only 2 miles away, and I am now about to attempt this adorable pillow case dress. I will post a picture whether I succeed in actually turning out something that resembles the picture or not!

Sew Easy

I finally learned to sew this weekend and I am loving it! I am not perfect by any means, but I am enjoying straight line projects. It just so happens I have a few pregnant friends and I thought a good gift and easy to make item would be burp cloths. The lines aren't professional and some experimenting with different stitches did not pay off, but all in all I would say it was a success!
