Photo Silhouette

     I just love a great silhouette, whether it be my own child or someone I don't even know from long ago! Either way I think they are sophisticated and enchanting to look at and have in my home. So since I enjoy embroidery so very much I worked up a little silhouette of my daughter. She is 6 now and I just adore how it came out. I am about to begin one for Pennie Girl. She has a little cupie curl in her hair that I think will make for an adorable look.



I also tried my hand at some tiny embroidery for a necklace. I did one for myself and one for a dear neighbor who bought those most adorable hoops for me!

Come on Springtime

 Gearing up for the spring and summer I am cutting these patterns to have for Miss Pennie Jo to wear and her precious cousin Miss Priss (Amelia). These two will be so sweet and these are the best airy, comfy, ruffle butt rompers!! Here are a few precious models showing off some different ones I have made over the last few summers. If you want the pattern hop over to The Tie Dye Diva it is the Ruffled Baby Bubble Romper! It is so simple and the absolute cutest thing on!

Thanks Brownie-Goose

     I have to rave about this new pattern that a dear friend brought to me! It is by Brownie-Goose and is the Bay Dress/Top, Check out all of her cute patterns here at Brownie-Goose.
     I made up a dress for her daughter this evening and I can hardly wait to do more. I have a stash of fabric that has been waiting for that perfect dress and top. Our daughters will have these for just about every day of the week! I am itching to get started, come on summer (or just warmer weather). I think pairing these with a great pair of leggings would be ideal for springtime!






















  This back is just incredible, I'm still swooning!



These two girls are such sweet friends and want to have the exact same clothes! Of course they are the best models! LOL I've got my work cut out for me!!!

Happy Tuesday!

Good Morning and Happy Tuesday!
   It was a very eventful weekend in our house! We had a ton to do and we were kicking off our Missional Communities with our church. Jason and I are hosting/leading one based on Dr. Gary Chapman's The 5 Love Languages. We are both excited and nervous since this will be the first group we have led but also because we want the couples within our group to gain knowledge to help strengthen their love and marriage. That to me is a HUGE deal and can put a lot of pressure on one to succeed and do the book justice! So we have been praying over the group and reading through the book again and talking about each chapter and our views, I am excited to see how others interpret the book and receive it! So if you think about it during your prayer time, please remember us and the group we will be leading!!

  So with spring peaking it's way around the corner! LOL (Well for us here in the lowcountry where it has been hovering around 60-65 and sunny!) Although I must say those up north with all that snow I would have liked to see at least one snowfall this winter season, however I will take the warm sun any day! Makes me feel happy and active! With all that being said I had a point...being I am gearing up for all of my PennieGirl's spring/summer wardrobe! Starting with this darling little romper .(Pattern by Sara Norris, Sweet Baby Jane you can find her amazing patterns here Sara Norris LTD.)  So this is the one I whipped up yesterday for PennieJo, I adore it. It's hard to tell from the photo but it's a baby pink seersucker material with these delightful blue crabs. Gets me in the mood for the beach and some she-crab soup!


It's hard to get my little peanut to sit still sometimes, but I just thought she was too adorable in it!!! Come on Summer!!! She's going to have one of these for just about every day of the week!

Oh a back view, I am infatuated with the ruffle tushy!!!
