Because I've not been sewing much

and because everyone needs to see random things from me...Here's a picture of what children do when they find stuff in the closet:
Does anyone want to give me some decorating advice?  My bathroom is: ugly.  It has the most extensive collection of non-matching flesh-toned ceramic products I have ever seen.

And here's a picture of my favorite comfort food.  Don't you just love the buttery sheen?
This was something my Nonnie used to make and I always loved it.  It's macaroni, bacon, onions, and cabbage.  mmmmm....

And I did sew some last night:
It's a dress for a butterfly-themed birthday party.  It's an Indygo Junction pattern and goes together quick and easy.  I don't have the intended shoulder closures, so I'll have to use snaps.  I'm just *not* into buttonholes today, although covered buttons would look super cute...oh no.  Now I've gone and put doubt into it - I'm going to have to look at my buttons.


  1. I don't envy your bathroom dilema. When we moved in we had a bathroom suite in brown, one in terracotta and one in avocado. They are all replace now. It only took eight years!
    The dress looks great. Funny, I avoided making buttonholes today too...didn't feel like it! I used snaps with the excuse that it was for a baby.

  2. Well, I'm going on eight years, and that room's still fleshy, lol. And doomed to stay that way, I'm afraid. At least I only have one :-)
    I totally put snaps on the dress!! I didn't have the right size buttons, anyway. Now I have to make matching pants and a gift for the birthday girl - yikes! I'm thinking the apron/chef's hat from Otto.

  3. I have to clean them all though! I'd have one if it were up to me. As for the apron and hat, that sounds like a great idea.

  4. Your chidlren are very creative!
