Tiger Party Planning: The Supplies!

Tiger Party Planning: The Supplies!

We’re at T minus six days for the tiger party for Miss Adventuress’ fifth birthday!  I’ve purchased almost all of the supplies we need for this party now!  I just shopped at Dollar Tree and Wal-Mart for this party.  We don’t go all-out on our parties, but we do enough to make the theme come … Continue reading

Against all probabilities…

Against all probabilities…

I have just finished making matching dresses for my girls.  I said I would never do this, given my own distaste for being dressed in matching velour dresses for many years with my own sister, but Miss Adventuress specifically requested it.  And Miss Braveheart is too young to mind, and was so eager to have … Continue reading

Sneak Peek: The Everyday Princess Dress

Sneak Peek: The Everyday Princess Dress

It is what its name implies; a princess dress that is comfortable, easy to wear, and easy to wash, and thus suitable for everyday use.  We’re not much on frills and furbelows around here, but Miss E is almost five, and is expressing more interest in dresses.  The lack of long-sleeved dresses, and the price … Continue reading

Wonkiness and another Sneak Peek

  I love that “wonky” is an official quilting term.  I also love that this wonky log cabin style is my favorite, as well as being the one that is best suited for me!  This little block is going to become a pot holder!  I’m working on the reverse side now, possibly with a ticker tape … Continue reading

The result of a high level of distractibility…

is many partially-finished projects!  If you recall, I have several urgent projects on my plate at the moment.  The good news is, I’m making progress!  The bad news is, none of them are completely finished!  I have a tendency to work on one, get distracted by another, remember that third one and decide it would … Continue reading

Upcoming Project List

I wrote out February’s “Urgent Projects” list yesterday.  Oh my, it’s long!  I’m feeling a little overwhelmed…and these are just my “really need/want to finish this month” projects!  If I told you about all of them right now, you would be overwhelmed as well!  So, I’ll just share the ones I am [fairly] certain I’ll … Continue reading
