A new picture of my FOUR MONTH old baby (I know, four months? WHAT?!!)…


See, even she’s surprised how fast time flies!


I cannot even tell you how THRILLED I am with my new sewing machine (the Janome 7330).  I was a little concerned about the price at first, but as soon as I started this bad boy up and started sewing, I knew it was worth every penny!!!

So, here is my first completed project (aside from the 8 pairs of babylegs I made as soon as I took the machine out of the box 🙂 )….




My neice has a dress similar to this one that I absolutely ADORE, so I used it to draft the pattern.  The shirt I bought from Walmart for $3 and sewed it to the dress so that the straps would stay in place.  Someday (when I’m all grown up, as my friend Lori would say 🙂 ) I’ll make my own shirt, but not this time.

The thin, stretchy fabric fed through my Janome beautifully!  I am lovin’ this machine!!!
