It's been a while!

So, it's been a long while since I posted.  Life tends to do that.  I've been busy sewing lately, a block for a charity quilt the Emerald Coast Modern Quilt Guild is working on.

Also worked on my girls Esther dresses.  Esther Conference at our church is geared toward girls from age 9-16.  We teach them, according to their age group, about respect, responsibility and relationships.  Also, at age 15 and up, they can be "crowned" an Esther of their generation.  There is a ball where the crowning takes place.  The girls dress up in gowns or just fancy dresses.  Most ALL wear a crown just because they can LOL. 
Here are a few more pics from the event.  Several dresses I hemmed.  My girls dresses I made completely.
Aside from that I finally finished a solids challenge quilt and a trip around the world quilt then donated it for a silent auction to raise money for a mission trip for a girl from church.

I finished a baby quilt.

A camera case..well, 2 of them.  I like the way they turned out. :)

And smocked this dress for my friends ADORABLE little girl!
 lol I think that is it!  Sorry for the tons of pics but it's been a while. ;)

Dresses for Juliette!

So, I have fabric...lots of fabric and have had it for forever!  My friend Jolene brought her adorable Juliette

 over and we went through fabric and patterns.  Finally found several prints she loved and a pattern to go with it.
The first dress was black with cherries lined in red with micro dots.  TOO CUTE!

The next 3 are below:

and of course bows to match!

I really should find the cord to my my daughters camera take fuzzy pictures!
