Been racing around like a mad woman....

trying to get some more items posted this week. I succeeded in a few only because I have my sister here this week helping me again. She might be going home for good now after this week. :( Ah well after I get some new items up I can relax a little. But I have more cute cute fabric waiting for me to start shaping into something pretty and well wearable! I am pretty pleased with the results. First we had to weed out a few obstacles:
Number one: Rascal there in the bottom corner! (Annoying!! thinks big sister.) As soon as the camera comes out he is there saying "cheese!!" (I will have to do some sewing and model it on him.)
Number two: The glasses had to go they were causing too much reflection.

Shirt number one made in pretty pink and brown which seems to be a favorite color combination of mine for now. I added some shirring on the sleeves and waist to give it a little different look, I like the end result. Got that one photographed and went in to punch down the bread dough and form it into loaves. At the same time throwing some sandwiches together for the rest of the troop and giving instructions to sister how to make a headband since we decided we needed to add to the next photo shoot.
Shirt number two and we forgot to shoot some of this shirt with a layered look. She tried it on with a pink shirt underneath and it looked darling....might have to squeeze that in that possible? So we added a bandana to this one. You may request it for an additional $5.00 in the fabric of your choice! I really like this shirt too (so does the girl in the photo...hmmm...does she deserve it, probably I guess for all her hard work :)).
I had an order for a size 8 shirt in this style so we decided to update the pictures for this shirt as it is still available but the sparrow pants in the old photos are not. YAY I got rid of pretty much every last inch of that stuff! It was a favorite for sure.

Then I got out the performer to model the new corduroy dress that I was working on earlier. Very cute with AND without the sash, take your pick. I wish I had a pair of little brown boots to model this with. Sigh.....maybe I will find some one of these days. Oh....and the ruffles will also be available too. I would like to make shirt to model them with as well....!

That's all for today folks, as she gives the final bow! Clap clap clap...she likes to be on stage!

Take advantage of the blog sale that ends on Friday. I plan to get a couple more items listed by tomorrow. (Do I need to pull an all nighter? I have Mt. Everest piling in the laundry room.)

Extention of Sale!!

I am not getting done quite what I had wanted to before my "blog sale" ended. The warm weather is calling me. We haven't really had summer as of yet in our area and now it is finally warming up to 90 degrees for a couple days so I have to get out and enjoy it and relax in the sun. For next week it is supposed to cool off again. :( Well that means I will have more time to get the rest of my stuff listed that I want to. So on account of the warm weather, the buy one get one equal or lesser value 50% off sale is officially extended till the end of next week, August 21st. That way you have more to choose from when you go to make your order. On the other hand if you already know what you want, feel free and let me know. Any listings also that are complete outfits are 20% off the list price.

I am working on some ruffles and a darling corduroy dress right now. I want to also add another shirt and a skirt to mix and match as well. Is there a certain style people are looking for? Let me know!!

More Rose Collection

To everyone who may still be waiting...I promise there will be another piece or two from the Rose Collection for you to choose from by Friday!!! I was going to have a redwagonkids day all day today and it turned out that it was a GORGEOUS day FINALLY and hubby was able to get out of work a half a day early so we went and spent the day at the beach (the very first time this summer) with the kids. Hubby's brother and family were there too at their grandparents' cabin, so the kids got some quality time with cousins that live in the cities. Baby's calling!

EEEEEk I am so in love!

This is baby number 6 and I am in love all over again. It sometimes seems how can a person divide their love between so many children, but this love doesn't divide, it just keeps growing. I remember thinking when I was expecting my second how will I love this baby as much as the first? And sure enough that love was there for that baby too, and the love my first seemed to change a little bit. This love still is changing as my oldest now is 8 and is a great big help to her mom, but it is such an awesome feeling to have that "baby love" again!
How can you not just love them?
In the mean time I am busy trying to get rid of some baby fat! :) My inspiration this time: 5K run that is coming up NEXT SATURDAY!! Another EEEEEEEEK! I have had only 4 weeks to train for this so we shall see how it goes. Also my training has been just a tad sporatic at times, but as long as my sister (who has promised to come and hold my hand) is still up to it we are going to do it in 9 days! Wish me luck. LOL!

I'm Down to the Last Few Yards

...of Joel Dewberry sparrow fabric. This fabric is getting hard to find so I think this will be the last of it. I will be getting a new line to replace it once I have more of my Rose Collection up. It is a little sad because I really did love this collection, but it is time for a new one.

One pair of the Sparrow Ruffle pants left up to size 4.

Only one of these twirly skirts in the Rose Damask in Chocolate left.

And one left of the Sparrow shirts as well.
