all things wedding

What started out as a week devoted to sewing children's projects did not wrap up that way. Somehow I was under the illusion that I would have time to both work on my projects and prep for the wedding show I was part of this weekend, I could not have been more wrong.

On to the sucesses of the week, the wedding show was great! The event staff were wonderful and the energy of the people and venue made the day fly by! Here are a few of the items I featured at the event:

Rustic Ring Pillow

Rustic Favor Bags

My thanks to Vintage China Hire for including us in their display! For more inspirational photo's of rustic wedding setting be sure to check out their website.

Off now to finished my KCWC projects!

Starting something new

Welcome to my blog! After following so many of the amazing sewing blogs out there and being inspired by all the creativity out there I hope I can inspire you as I have been.

I signed up to participate in the Kids Clothing Week Challenge over at elsie marley and I'm so excited to get started. The past week as I've made my plan and it's been so hard to not jump into it. Instead I've been trying to finish other projects I have on the go so I can focus on the projects I've picked for the challenge.

So here is my short list: one sleepsack for the darling boy, and for the sweet girl a ruffled tunic and sailor pants to go with a top made earlier this month.

Here is my starting point:

For today's hour of sewing I cut the blue and white fabrics for the sleep sack and started working on the pattern for the purple tunic. Tomorrow, I sew!
