Isabel rides the Pumpkin Patch Express

Isabel rode the Pumpkin Patch Express via the Texas State Railroad this Sunday with Mama, Daddy, Grandma, and Grandpa. There were two bounce houses, hay rides, trick-or-treating, a big slide, a pumpkin patch, a big box of corn kernels, swings, games, music, food, and, of course, train rides!

Junebug Dress

 

 

This is the first dress I ever made. It’s also the first thing I made with the sewing machine I treated myself for my 30th birthday.
I made it for a friend’s kid (birthday present!) using the Junebug dress pattern.
It’s the same pattern I used for Isabel’s picnic dress.

Isabel gets a surprise visit

jc04201401

Isabel was visited in April by one of her favorite people! Jessica was in town taking care of some things related to Jessica being awesome. She stopped by to help us make cascarones, which we dyed using all natural dyes with varying levels of success.
