For the month of June, our Year of Enchantment ornament swaps theme was ladybugs. I waited to post because I wanted to make sure Kerry, my partner had time to get her package...Here is what Kerry sent me...
I love this little guy....The antennae are so cute! She also sent me some fun other ladybug goodies.
I made her a painted ladybug glass ball ornament.
I also made her a little lady bug house out of fabric that I quilted onto peltex...I had no idea what I was doing... I saw the little pattern in Cloth Paper Scissors and I thought it would be cute in fabric. This was a tough one to figure out...once done though, I just think it turned out really cute. There were several times when I was ready to throw it away.
This months theme is mermaids so I have been giving that some thought. Who knows what I will come up with.
Olivia and I had a good time this weekend.
We went to the movies and saw Mr Poppers Penguins...She is such an animal lover that she was enthralled and now wants a penguin...or two but I expected that. It was a really cute movie.
We also got our new absolute favorite dessert! Papa Murphy's has a smore pizza....We call it chocolate pizza and it is so good...We are hooked lined and sinkered and the best news? A pizza is 4 dollars...I think it is a great buy...you have to try it.....yum!
We also sewed pajama pants. Liv made her own. I made her model them for Julie today and I snapped a picture...She has her eyes closed but you get the idea!
I think she shut her eyes on purpose.....She also made pj bottoms for Jace and he loves to model...You can tell I am at Julie's because of all the kids stuff in the background.
While Liv was sewing I pieced together and outfit for little Ava out of quilt scraps. I didnt use a pattern I just put this and that on it and it turned out so cute. Julie was just thrilled and says it is the cutest thing she has ever seen. After making itty bitty doll clothes, it was easy.
The pants are reversible....they can be black and white dots with red ruffles too and the back of the top is in the same dots...
