KCW check in

I thought I would just jump in with what I've been making during KCW. 
If  you didn't read my first KCW post go HERE to see why I'm still trying to make up for lost time.

KCW Started off with a BANG

Hi all, it's the first  second day of KCW & because I was so excited I started cutting my patterns out Sunday. 

I cut out a pair of bubble shorts, a lovely infant peasant dress, a new tank for Lily, and I  am still on the hunt for a great fabric to make my son a basic blazer. In addition, I've been sewing the first "mom" outfit for a series that is going on in May on the Shaffer Sister's Blog.

Formal Attire // Birthday Dress

Week 4 of Project Run and Play is in fully swing & I am ready to go! 

I've been working on Lily's birthday outfit a lot lately. Her 5th birthday party is an Alice in Wonderland Tea party where she will be Alice (of course!).

Project Run and Play: It's all in the details

Hi! I had so much fun sewing along with project run and play the last session. I thought I would be all over this one, but sadly I haven't. 
I'm still sewing, but I haven't been able to work the projects on my table into the themes so I've been sitting them out and watching everyone else's amazing handywork. 
Truly lovely ladies, honestly I'm constantly blown away at the level of ability everyone manages! 

So this is what, week 3? 
I knew I'd be able to get this one to fit in with her spring wardrobe. I have been working out pattern details for this shirt. The last one I made had a gathered waist, which I also loved, but I wanted to leave it out and make it a bit more dress-like and billowy.

I QUIT! & Other things ...

We are enjoying some amazing weather here in Iowa. 
Yesterday it was like 70! Ok I actually didn't check the temp (I usually don't) but it FELT that warm so I hurried and packed a yummy lunch for the kiddos and we were off the the zoo. 
Even though we've gone 3x in the last few weeks, it isn't getting old AT ALL. 

Did I tell you guys I quit smoking
Did you even know I was a smoker?? (I hope NOT)
