First, a new autographed copy of Mandy and Pandy say, Ni Hao Ma?" It comes with two finger puppets and a cd. Love this and I have a copy too:)
Last, is a new charm set that is travel related. I love the saying on the back, "A globe lets you carry the world on a string, Your own private jet to take with you, A suitcase to store treasures along the way.
I also had to have a set of these :) I will hold the drawing and post the winners next Friday.

I spent most of the week sewing Hannah a costume for school. She has a medieval festival Friday. The dress didn't turn out as well as I planned but looks OK. It's made of cornflower blue silk with a gold and blue trim ribbon. I even put eyelets down the back so I could have a corset style lace in gold. I would liked to have added some embroidery and maybe beads but I had one week to complete this. Ah, don't you love teens and their sense of time. But all is well and I finished the dress and had time to make the Gyngerbrede for her other project. I will post pictures of her in the dress with her hair braided tomorrow.
Now I have time to work on a new outfit for summer for the sewing blog. I'm using some scrap fabrics so if it doesn't turn out it won't be a big deal. The top is gathered with tie straps and can be worn with a t shirt underneath in cooler weather. I am also making a matching short. I really hope it works, I love the pattern. There are so many options for personalizing it. I will just work on it until it comes out the way I want it to. The problem is finding time to sew with the weather now being nice. I think I found the solution, though I would recommend not doing it in your pajamas. LOL~ OK, you all probably want the story on that. Well, Hope and I were having a Jammie day today but it was so nice out I couldn't bear not going outside, but remember I had a lovely (insert sarcasm here) dress to finish for Hannah, so I found the outside outlet by the patio and hooked up my sewing stuff. We have a somewhat private backyard that backs to the subs commons, usually everyone is working and going out in Jammie's would not be a problem. Well, we were on the patio, I am sewing away, Hope is playing in her playhouse and all of a sudden about four landscapers come out of nowhere and descend on our quiet private yard. I'm thinking one of two things, I either grab Hope and leave my stuff and run for the house while she screams or I act like it's OK to find a lady in her Jammie's sewing on the patio while her daughter is playing in her playhouse also in her Jammie's. Well, you guessed it, we stayed outside. I figured this is my yard and I'm staying. ( I also had on a hat and sunglasses so if I saw them again, maybe they wouldn't recognize me??)

Get ready, it's coming! Once I get word from our agency that we are DTC, I am going to have a give away to celebrate. I found something super cute for us mom's and then picked up something today at the bookstore for the kids. I will let everyone know the details very soon. Hopefully by now everyone has found the new blog.
