Bitsy's new threads

So, I found this cute retro/vintagy pillow case set at a local thrift store (gotta love thrift store shopping!). I used Kwik Sew pattern 3673 to come up with my creation.

And of course, an opportunity for a photo shoot by my talented Ashley!

My Talented Ashley~

I just have to share the talent Ashley possesses! All of these images are in their "raw" state~ meaning no editting what so ever, except for the watermark.

This one was the 1st place winner of the 2010 Marianna Arts Festival...

She just recently opened her own website, i-shutter photography. She is open for local photography sessions if any one is interested! ;)

Our awesome blessings!

I am so grateful for the 8 blessings the Lord has gifted us with!

Titus~just over a year old. He is truly a delight! I love listening to all his "jibber". He says quite a few things with his hands, but has gotten quite verbal these days as well!

Ruby, or Bitsy to us~ just turned 3! Where does the time go? Even though we have had 4 girls before her, I think Bitsy is the only one that has truly taken to baby dolls. It's so precious to see her playing with "her family".

AnnaRuth~ Such a helper! She is always so willing to help where needed. She will make a wonderful mama one day...as she practices bunches on all littles that she comes in contact with. ;)

Kyla~the daintiest of all the girls, but don't let that fool ya!! Dynamite comes in small packages, ya know. She is probably the "tom boy" of the girls.

Shauna~ such a warm and caring heart, she has! Shauna is the "peace maker" of the children.

Zebidiah, Zeb for short~ Any one need a clown for hire? Zeb's your clown! Will be goofy for a laugh!

Evan~ Such a strong and intent young man. Evan is growing into such an exceptional Christian young man! Hard to believe my first born son is now 3 inches taller than me!

Ashley~ ah...my right hand! The Lord knew exactly what I needed when he blessed me with her! It's a shame not every mom has an Ashley!

Titus' new shoes!

I have wanted to make soft shoes for a long time, but always felt overwhelmed by the idea. It wouldn't have been a biggie if I made them out of regular fabric, but I wanted to go all out and do it "the right way"...with leather.

I raided our local thrift stores for some old leather coats that were in good condition. I only used one sleeve of a lambskin jacket for these shoes for Titus. The jacket was half off (Goodwill's half off clothing on Mondays) for $10. So, these shoes probably cost me $2.50 to make! ;)

I am LOVIN' how they turned out...and glad I finally pushed myself. I am also glad for my old 60 year old Morse sewing machine...I couldn't sew the sole onto the shoes with my Kenmore. They don't make machines like they used to!!

Bitsy's new dress

My oldest daughter, Ashley (i-shutter photography), had a photo shoot with Bitsy and her new dress I made her. She is quite proud of her bright dress! And I am quite proud of Ashley's photographic ability as well. ;)

and just because...
