What a blessing!

A friend of mine recently asked me to make the blessing dress for her baby.  She had already had 4 four boys and now that her 5th was a girl it was an extra special event.  I felt so honored to be a part of their special day.  Little Miss Lucille "Lucy" was blessed last Sunday.

This is the slip for the dress.
We decided that after 4 older brothers, she needed some pink to
celebrate the big day.

Girls 5-8 Class

This is my 5-8 girls class.  They each learned about hand stitching first before we moved on to the machine
by learning how to embroider their initials into fabric that we would be making pillows out of.

Here are the girls finished pillows.  They did such a great job picking their color schemes and learning
how to finish the pillows off on the machine.  We had a small snow storm in June stuffing pillows.  What could be better?
Purses anyone?  This is the girls last project which they all chose to do.  They were all so creative in the patterns and colors they chose.  Great job girls.  

Girls 8-12 Class Headbands

These are my 8-12 Girls.  They each chose their own fabric for their super cute headbands.  The great thing is that these were all made from scraps so it doesn't really cost anything to make.  Next time we will make skirts to match.
