Happiness is a Cool, Crisp October Day!

So I finally accepted the fact that 3/4th of this year has passed us by and it's time to clean the yard and turn over a new leaf, so to speak, in my sewing room as well as our entire home!  Lord knows I have neglected both and the numerous cobwebs need to go!  

I do love Fall as the season in preparation for warm family get-togethers around the holiday table.  My family is very small so I treasure every minute we have together!  This is one of my favorite Fall 4-generation, un-prepared and un-staged Kodak moments!  I continue to count the blessings I have in each of my family members and can't wait to take a new girls 4-generation picture for the holidays this year!

We are celebrating Lola's 2nd Birthday today, October 16!!  Here she is, fluffy and sweet, along with my favorite son and grand-daughter.  Don't be mislead by her charm.  She is always looking for mischief!  She was a very special delivery, Christmas eve, 2011, and is due for a Birthday spa treatment and manicure this afternoon!

I've been quite busy in the sewing room as well.  Not as much smocking, but working on a beautiful Christening gown for a special little boy's October Baptism, made out of his mom's wedding gown.  The two-piece outfit is an inspiration from Sew Beautiful Magazine's special Heirloom Sewing Issue.

So isn't this wedding gown gorgeous?  I was so stressed out making that first cut into it's beautiful fabric!!

Here is a trial run of the Christening bubble.  Oh so exciting!

I've also been busy with applique work and machine embroidery for some sweet sisters, all the way in the UK!  Don't you just love the colors?  The adorable embroidery designs and font are available at Oma's Place!
