Here is the dress I sewed as a gift to Calla, my niece, for her 2nd birthday. The round pocket is for all her little trinkets. I love the Amy Butler fabrics in this dress, and would've loved to make one for myself...except that it might be a little overboard for auntie and niece to matchy match.
Calla and my youngest, Judah, both celebrated their birthdays this past week. Judah knew something special was going on for him to have full access to chocolate icing, but I'm not sure he understood the significance of "turning two."
He received a tricycle from Grandma and Grandpa for the occasion, and now feels ready to keep up with his brothers more than ever!
Our festivities concluded with the much-anticipated silent auction event for Oak Grove. The fundraiser was a great success and blessing to us as well as for those who attended. (My painting sold for $300 to a lovely family, who decided to redecorate based on the painting!) Calla came to the event as well, and wore the dress I made her.
Now I'm ready to slow down a bit this week, and do a little nesting...
