New & Improved?

Here is Scout! All trimmed up, and seeing clearly at last!
And did I mention, he smells so much better?
But what do you think? Check out his before pictures.

bow + smock = gift

My friends little girl is turning 2 today. Here is what she is getting from me. I don't expect her to be over joyed by it, but it will look cute on her. And I think her mom will like it!

This is our Goldendoodle, Scout. A Goldendoodle is a mix between a Golden Reteiver and a Poodle.
This picture was taken the day we brought him home. He we 9 weeks old. He has been growing quickly.
Here he is at three months. This is a picture we took of him the first time we took him for a walk at Yankee Springs Recreational Area. He loves to chase the boys!
  • The last picture is of Scout now, six months, at Gun Lake! He is going in for his first haircut soon. I learned today that his hair never stops growing!

So, my reason for posting about Scout is to remind myself to take more "before" pictures. So there will be something to compair to the final product, the "after". And to show just how far it's come from where it started.

Pillow Case Make-over

This is a picture of Evie last summer wearing a pillow case, after I sewed it into a little nightgown. This is such an simple project, it takes no time at all. The lace at the hem was already part of the pillowcase, and I used ribbon for the ties.
There is a great tutorial to make your own here.

I ordered a ruffler foot from Lakeshore Sewing for my new sewing machine back in April. I just got a call that it came in. I still have to go pick it up, but I am looking forward to trying it out. I found great instructions for using one here.

I have some really great books on hold from the library and I can't wait for them to arrive! I will be adding a list of my favorite craft books to the side bar soon!

There are also a few tops I have finished for Evie that I will post as soon as I get them photographed.

By the way, the sock monkey in the crib with Evie was made for me by my parents, when I was a baby.
