Yes.... I'm still alve!

Just in case anyone was concerned... I am still alive and kicking! 

We have survived the long hot summer of 100*+ temps in Texas and NO rain!
We have survived the start of the school year!  Bailey is a Junior and Briley is in the 5th grade. 

Now on to the really important business at hand... blogging!   I just haven't been much in the bloggy mood for the past few months, but hopefully I can get back into a routine of 'thinking' again and maybe have something worthwhile to blog about.  Maybe?

About the only productive thing I managed to accomplish this summer was sewing a sweet little apron for my friend's daughter.
Here she is wearing the apron and enjoying her birthday cake! 

Next up is the 50's Day Celebration at the Elementary School and of course you know what that means... Yep... one poodle skirt, made to order for Briley!

So the day before this exciting 50's Day, I ran to JoAnn's on my lunch break, found the material I wanted to use and then that night I whipped up a poodle skirt following some extremely easy directions I found on the internet. 
Here she is, all dressed and ready for her day at school. 
As usual with the hope of Fall and cooler temps just around the corner, I have high hopes and plans for sewing more this fall.  As usual, we'll see how my plans work out and how reality has a way of changing those plans!  :)

You have mad sewing skills, Amy!
Love the apron -- it looks so sweet on that adorable little girl. How cute!

And the poodle skirt? That gave me a big smile -- I missed out on that craze, but I remember my mother making one for my older cousin Susan, and thinking "Oh, how glamorous!" In my little girl mind, I was going to wear poodle skirts when I grew up!

Lucky Briley to have a talented Mom. I wish you a wonderful start to the school year, and lots more good times as the year goes on. It may not seem like it now, but it sure goes FAST.

Best wishes,
