What's been up???

My 2 yr. old has outsmarted ma and all the people who make thoe child-proff locks- so that pretty much sums up what I've been doing the last couple of weeks. Soap all over floor, food color on the couch, toddlers on the counters and in the cupboards!!! I think you get my drift. :) Fortunately I have a wonderful husband who never gives me grief for taking some "me" time in the evenings at the sewing machine, and I've managed to crank out a couple of projects. First is the purse for my give a way. I had hoped to have it done in a week, but life happens and 2 weeks is really good in my book! It willbe in the mail on Tuesday and I'll be sad to see it go. I LOVE BLACK & WHITE!
I also got this dress finished. It is from the Amy Butler "Little Stitches" book. I thought it looked easy and simple. It wasn't really, but I muddled through and am thrilled with the results. There is always a learning curve when you try a new pattern and I anticipate the next dress will go much easier. This dress is for my friend Lisa who is having a baby in just a few days.
Other than that, I thing there have been lots of the usual. Kids saying funny stuff, doing naughty things and being really adorable. Nathan is on the verge of crawling and he melts my heart when he smiles! Sophie is definitely in the terrible 2's, but she's funny and loving and still a cuddler, which I love. Vivian is growing up so fast! She built a lever to launch Barbies in the yard, is learning to write her name and I'm trying to teach her "Don't Stop Believing" by Journey . . .much better than "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star" don't you think???
