A new night gown for Abigail

Well, it is now summer, or at least summer-like weather, where we are living and my girls have been asking for night gowns for summer.  So I set to work and made up a pattern and sewed the first one.  There a couple of things I am going to change on the second one, but I think Abby's night gown turned out pretty cute.

I think that's one happy girl?
What do you think?

Teacher Appreciation & Mothers day gifts

So I was driving this morning and as I passed the school I noticed on the bulletin board in front of the school that this week was teacher appreciation week.  I don't know why but I thought it was next week.  I'm glad I saw that today. 
Well, that got me thinking about what I should do for my kids teachers.  I thought since I already had my jewelry making supplies out, since Mothers day is this Sunday and I needed to get something in the mail for my Mom.
I would make each of their teachers a bracelet.  I thought it was different than what they usually get and it's something that will last.  I also made these fun little earrings for my Mom, and Grandma and they are now available in my shop.  I failed to get pictures of the necklaces I made for them, so I'll have to have them send a picture of them to me when they open them up.  I guess I was in too much of a hurry to get their package ready and sent.  I am just proud of myself that I actually got a mothers day gift out and on time this year.
