You Know It’s the End of the School Year When…

Well, it’s the end of the school year for my homeschooler and almost the end for my child in the public school system.  That means it has been super busy around our house! Projects, assignments, field trips, music performances, ballet exams and birthday parties!

As a result, this blog has been pretty quiet.

After posting my Cars ruffle skirt, I had a request for one in a size 7. This time I made it in a pretty blue.


I also had someone see the gorgeous new Emmaline pattern that I tried and thought it would make the perfect dress for her daughter to wear to the Calgary Stampede.  She wanted a brown and red colour scheme.


This one is a 4T.  I made it shorter (about mid-calf length).  It’s going to be so cute with her cowgirl boots and hat!

I’ll be back later this week with more to share, but in the meantime, be sure to check out my Facebook page.
