So I have been trying different dress patterns for the girls for Justin's wedding. This is another one I made. I did both girls dresses slightly different. They are in love with the cat fabric from momma and the fact it twirls so well. I have decided to smock the girls dresses and I am thinking instead of using a traditional smocked dress pattern I might use this pattern and the top "cuff" will be what is smocked. I have been working on some 4th of July smocking I am going to sew up in this pattern to see how I like it. Maybe we can vote on which style is cuter.
I would also like to report I weighed myself the other day at 150!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm down 17 pounds since February. I am no longer going to the weight loss clinic so the last 5 are all on me. I am slightly nervous about these last five but I think I am up to the challenge. It is nice that my clothes fit me now! I still want to go shopping eventually. Maybe after these last 5 are gone, we'll see. I always say I want to go shopping but never buy anything when I do, even when someone is with me!
I french braided Brooklyn's hair in a circle on her head. She loves her hair crown!
This morning I cleaned the garage. I threw away a bunch of unneeded, in the way, stuff and rearranged a few other things. When I was done sweeping it out I decided to vacuum it! Our shop vac has a wide brush so it didn't take long. It was kind of sad to pull the Xterra back in! I worked in their about two hours and when I was done I looked like I had just entered a wet t shirt contest. I started at 7:30 this morning and it was that hot already. When I got inside and shower I tackled the laundry room. It just needed to be straightened up some and have some holiday things put back into the attic. Then I moved onto organizing the bills better, then back to Sissy's closet where my sewing stuff is. Then I turned some blue vinyl table cloths into seat covers for out table. They are pretty awesome. I'll show some pictures of them later.
At one point I went to check on the girls. Brooklyn was getting Sissy ready for school. They had their school set up in the kitchen. It was to cute.
