So I pulled out the trusty ol' sewing machine tonight and dusted 'er off. It's been too long since I've worked on many projects! Just took a little oiling, and fine-tuning, and sweet-talking to bring the ole girl up to her working order--she's been feeling sorely neglected since I've become a mommy and then also a second-time-expectant mommy developing a close and personal relationship with the couch in the last few morning-sickness filled months--and we were best friends again in only a small number of minutes...

Ok, ok, my trusty White machine didn't need that much oiling and sweet-talking, but it has in fact been far too long since I've sewn, but I digress.

So now I just have to brag about the cute little sundress I made for Anna tonight! I stopped at Hancock fabric the other day in the middle of their Half-Off sale and stocked up on some fabric and .99 patterns for some cute clothes and blankets for Anna and the new baby. They had this adorable pucker-smocked print--I don't remember the technical name of the fabric, so that will have to do--for a really good price, and I made this dress for Anna for under $5! Whoohoo! I think it's adorable too, if I do say so myself. And I do...

Here's the dress

And my little reluctant model--she's still cute, albeit minus some appreciative smiles. I think she'll appreciate it more when we're out playing in the hot sun and she's nice and cool. Or at least I'll appreciate that she's nice and cool!
