A good day!

Hello everyone!

Well, yes, today was a really good day! and I thought I needed to blog about it!

First of, I got to hang out with 2 of my ultimate FAVORITE people...

That would be my sweet Marla and my angel Max! They are too much fun and I am blessed to have them in my life and to be able to spend my days with them!

But before I got Marla from pre-school, I swung by the thrift shop.. and got myself my own little peice of the Missoni for Target collection!

That's right! Two barretts... taped, mind you... because they were in peices ; )

I just couldn't pass up... and what's a crafty girl to do????

FIX them, and make them look Missoni worthy!!!
I got to put them in my hair and feel a little more "Missoni-special" for the rest of the day! ; )

Which brings me to the rest of the day... a little sewing!!
I wanted to share one of my favorite projects... It is one that helps me to ease into sewing knit fabric with confidence. And I DO recommend for anyone to try this out! It's SO easy! You are going to love it!

This is the link to the blog

Cute, right? Well here is my version:

I made the sleeves shorter... not much of a transformation, but I enjoyed making this cardigan! Way too much fun!

And I got to use a new stitch too on my sewing machine... and to me, that's just thrilling! (I know I can be a dork sometimes!)

I wish I had made it a little wider... just to hide my post-pregnancy pudge!!! Max was 9lbs11oz, I had a BELLY, alright?! ; ) and I know it's only been 2 months, but I am working on losing it!

It was a good day! I am wiped out, but it was great! I enjoyed laughing with my children, the fellowship with my new small group at church, thrifting, sewing and sharing with yall!

Get sewing everyone! and check out No big Dill's blog!

and happy sewing everyone!
