Hey Guys!

We are well! By Thursday we were all feeling much better and on Friday morning I left on that quick beach trip I told you about. We decided to stay over one night so that we could go see all of our favorite beaches and see how they all looked. I just got home at 2:00 this morning! It ended up being my mama, mama-in-law, and Mrs. Donna (one of the cutest little ladies that has ever lived!) who went to see the beach. Right now I'm working on weeding through almost a thousand pictures of the beach (oil spill) to make a slide show on flickr. We had a lot of fun hanging out together, but the beach was worse. I'll let the pictures speak for themselves, I'm trying not to get depressed about it again. I'll have them up sometime tomorrow.

This week is going to be fun around here! Last week I got in a ton of new fabric to play with! Wednesday when I was feeling a bit better I sewed up a dress for me, that I happened to LOVE. Since then I have made another dress and a shirt for me, an outfit for Maddie, and I plan on making at least another dress and top for me this week because I think I've just about perfected the fitting issues (you will be able to see a little bit of my shirt in one of the oil spill pictures, it's the cutest green dotted fabric!). I'm going to get back to building that slide show, but I wanted you all to know that we were back in the land of the livin!  xo, Sam

I wanted to thank you for showing what the beaches are really looking like and showing from a nonpartisan point of view what is really going on.

Glad you're well and had a safe little trip. I'll watch for those pictures.
Thanks for the "little chat" the other morning. The show went GREAT! We had sooo much fun and now everyone at the convention knows us...in a good way.

Hi! I'm new to you blog--found it when I bought one of your patterns at a local store! I'd like to hear more about what you sewed for yourself too!! I have made clothes for myself for years and dont run across many others who do. Where do you find your fabric too? Thanks for your inspiring blog and cute patterns!!
