Here is my new little NEPHEW, Brody Storm, born at 1:05 pm today. He weighs 8 pounds 8 ounces and is 21 adorable inches long. Mom and baby are both doing great. I heard Dad is not the happiest with the hospital chair/bed. Todd says those do need to be improved. Congrats to the proud parents!
It's also Anna's birthday. The big 4. She woke up this morning and was so upset because "she still looks 3." I wish I had that problem on my birthdays. She loves her quilt and has SO many new princess presents, I don't think she knows quite what to play with.
The kids made princess crowns and a visor for Nathan this afternoon with sparkly stickers. Nathan said he has never had so much fun at home. Thanks, I think.
Here is Anna in her birthday outfit. I've never done iron-on crystals before, but they were actually easy. Isn't the skirt fun? The purple fabric is Girlfriends from Jennifer Paganelli and the cream and pink one is Tina Givens' Treetop Fancy Huckleberry. I have quite a collection from her, as you loyal followers have seen.
That brings me to my first ever giveaway! Send me a comment on this page or send me an e-mail telling me your favorite sewing project ever. If you don't sew, tell me your favorite hobby. If you don't have hobbies, just tell me hi! I want to hear from you! The contest is open until midnight CST, Sunday, June 21, 2009. The winner will be randomly drawn.
And now for the prize: one skirt just like Anna's in the colors of your choice. I can make any size. If you don't have a daughter, sign up for your granddaughter, niece, neighbor, friend, etc. I could even make an adult one. I'm not sure it's my fashion taste, but if it suits you, that's fine with me. Oh, and I don't need sizes until I announce the winner.
I'm so excited about this! And I can't wait to hear from you.
