A Colonial Dress

I'm finally getting around to posting the picture of Emma's colonial dress. She loves it and wears it often. After church on Easter Sunday she came home and changed into her beloved dress before hunting eggs. I'm glad it's a favorite and hope it gets lots of wear.

Mail time (sewing books)

Look what came in the mail for me:



I'm so excited and can't wait to get started! I've been wanting to sew clothes for myself. I think these 2 books( The Colette Sewing Handbook and Sew Serendipity) will be the perfect way to start.

A birthday!

Look who had a birthday...our little Thicket!  April 2nd she turned 4.  We celebrated with cupcakes (which of course she didn't eat) and a gift (which she did eat).  She's such a big part of our family.  We love our little chica mandona!
