Hello bloggin' friends! I have really missed you. I have so much to tell that I don't know where to start! I had carpal tunnel surgery on my left hand about a month ago and it was totally worth it. My hand and fingers no longer hurt. I still have a little weakness, but that will get better with time. I plan to have my right hand done in a few weeks. That may be a little more challenging since I am right handed. Anyhow -- enough of that! What have you all been working on? Before my surgery, I sewed together a few things and I wanted to share them. First, my nephew had a birthday in August. He loves minions (so do I!). So, I decided to make him a minion lap blanket. I think he likes it. (Can you tell by the picture?)
I also made up a couple of outfits and dresses for Addi to wear for the fall.
Sock Monkey outfit for Addi
And this past weekend, I sewed up a little Halloween outfit for my great niece. She was so cute it in!
I also made her a backpack for her birthday. She loves to take her books when she visits her G Mom. (aka my sister!)
My niece had a Strawberry Shortcake 1st Birthday Party. I attempted to make her tutu. It was challenging and I learned some things.... NOTE TO SELF -- NEVER USE TULLE WITH GLITTER IN IT! (My daughter made the shirt for her.) She was adorable.
As you can see, I have been quite busy. I know all of you are busy too. I have been keeping up with your blogs and you really inspire me! I hope you have a great week and thanks for dropping by to see what I have been up to!
