Last week, a dear friend of mine gave me all of her Adventures in Odyssey albums!! It was very sweet of her!! And I am such a big fan of it! I have them all alphabetically organized on our basement shelf. I like to take a big step back and just look at them all!! I what to thank her very very much!!
Just this week we got a HUGE snow storm!! And I thought that I would go a whole entire Winter without shoveling!!!
With the help of a nice older sister and a few trips to Joanns, I was able to make my second regency dress!! Every year Kelle has made a dress for me, but I am getting quite old enough to sew my own. (I actually made one last year, but I won't mention that one because it was the "first time" dress) So, I have a really hard time picking out fabrics. They just all look so good together, that I don't know which one to pick! Thanks to Kelle, she has a very keen eye for fabrics that match you, so she stuck her hand in the wall of fabric and brought out a fabric that was hidden underneath some other bolts. It was a perfect color!! It was a light tan with white and purple flowers. I couldn't believe it!! And it was right when I was about to tell her that I don't see any that I liked, and she found one!! Yay!! So I am kind of doing this post for my sister, because without her, I don't think I would have found any fabrics or better yet, SEWN it!
