Elodie


There is a good reason for my time away. Here she is. We named her Elodie. Well, actually I named her and my husband was kind enough to go along with it. She is two months now, and a total cutie.

Okay, back to sewing. I have been sewing, but mostly out of necessity. Making tote bags as gifts and the sort. Saga needs some new summer dresses because she is growing so quickly. All the tops I made last summer will not fit me anytime soon. Belly be gone! So I am working on something new today. I did make a couple of knit maternity tops using the BBW 3835 pattern. They worked out well, and I will be cutting them up to repurpose the 3 yards of fabric needed to make them. Hope to post again soon with a new top.

Ohhh - dear girl! She's sooo sweet! I really missed your posts - as well as hearing from you from time to time on my blog. Elodie is a beautiful name - Saga and Elodie... Congratulations from me to you - can't wait to see more! Oh, and by the way, if you want to make an easy, yet sweet dress for Saga, I can recommend a shirred dress - I'm making Ronja one tonight, and it's quite easy, and a wonderful style for a little girl. :)
