Sew Busy!

Along with getting out all my Fall decorations I've been busy sewing for my baby niece.  I'm trying to get these last few items made so I can turn my sewing room back into a dining room for the upcoming holidays.  Here is one little dress I've made for her.  Don't you just love this fabric?  It's called Tooty Fruity!

Then I made her this little pinafore top (that's the back shown) with coordinating pants, since the weather is getting cooler, she can wear a shirt under the top.  The fabric is also from the Tooty Fruity line.

I've also got her a reversible romper cut out of these fabrics as well.  My sister picked up these fabrics a while back and I think she got a yard a piece, which was enough to make more than one outfit each.  Oh,  and check out these darling fabrics I found at Hobby Lobby!  I think I'm becoming a hoarder!  I'd better get busy if I'm going to get my dining room back.

She's got to have something cute to wear for her first Halloween!  I love this trick or treat fabric, but I wish they sold a coordinating fabric to go with it.  I found this green damask print in another part of the store and since the color matches the green in the other print I got it.

I liked the green so much I went back today and got this fabric that actually coordinates with it.  I'm thinking of doing some ruffle leg pants and a long sleeve peasant top out of these.

I love this turquoise and white fabric, but I think I might wait until spring to make something with it.

Along with the sewing and decorating for Fall, I've got a couple other irons in the fire.  Check out this 1980s sofa table.  I love having my family photos on display, but I'm ready to do something different with this table.  First thing will be a coat of paint.

I still haven't decided what color the paint will be yet.  I've seen some gorgeous turquoise sofa tables around the blogosphere, but I might be too chicken for that.  We'll see.

 Remember the second "ugly chair"?  Well, she's fixin' to have a little change too! 

Stay tuned for the transformation.

Tomorrow I will be going out of town to sing in a September 11 memorial service.  I can't believe it's been ten years since that terrible day.  I was pregnant with my youngest and had kissed my husband good bye that morning as he left for the airport.  Luckily his plane landed safely and our story had a happy ending, unlike so many others.  I hope you'll join me in remembrance of those that were lost that day.
