All smiles...

Because this family was SO cute!  My first shoot in a long time and it felt like I drank four Rockstars.  I was all over the place and loving every minute of it.
This couple was so cute and so full of personality. 

They pretended to be reserved but they were game for just about anything.  I love that.

Their girls were little bursts of sunshine.  Especially, E, the oldest, what a firecracker.  Striped socks and converse.  Love it.
And her little sister, M, was the coma in all of E's run-on sentences.  So sweet with big blue eyes like shiny marbles.

Thank you S Family for giving me my fire back.  My camera was lovin' you guys tonight.  Totally and completely.

The End

Here they are folks!  The long awaited WogStockings, or Wogs, that have been in the works for some time.  I'm very excited about them.  They will be selling in a consignment shop in Harrisburg very soon along with other items I have made.  It's a huge step for me but going forward is always a good thing, right? 

I'm sticking on a sale price of $10 per pair.  If you're interested, let me know.  I will have an assortment of colors, patterns and designs to choose from so don't be shy!  Place a request and I'll get them to you as soon as possible.

Ring around the rosies...

Had to make another raglan.  I'm in love with this Kwik-Sew pattern.  Can't get enough.  So, I set to work on yet another shirt.
34 little circles.  20 grey and 14 purple.

I fiddled and fiddled.  I arranged and re-arranged.  Finally, I came up with a semi-satisfactory design.  I edited and didn't use all of the circles, because it ended up being a little too much.  But here she is!

This shirt was easy and hard all in the same breath.  It was easy to make the shirt itself but the rosette design placement was a bit harder than I thought!  It seems so easy when you look at the cute shirts in the store but a lot goes into making it look good.  I had a bit of a time with the petals, they kept drooping and looking a little sad so I had to find a way to sew it all together to give it a little lift.  In the end, it turned out cute.   There was the incident with my sewing machine.  For some reason, it kept wanting to eat my material thus the little thread pockets on the front, blech.

But three cheers for a good try!
