A touch of pink on the sewing table


Okay. So really the sewing table is the dining room table. I'm not that fancy. Plus the little table next to my sewing machine is absolutely buried in a mountain of fabric. Because yes... I am a "pile-er"

I actually made Christmas Dresses for each of my girls this year and the results were *fabulous* all inspired by Bitsy's Golden Phoenix Dress for Halloween. Now that we've made it through the holidays I am playing with knits. I stayed away from knits for the longest time but I'm finding that I really like them. And of course the kids enjoy wearing them, who doesn't love a t-shirt dress?


How pretty is this fabric combo? I love the colors!
I am using the "Snap Dragon Pattern" by Sew Like My Mom
Super Easy Pattern to follow!




All made up into the cutest little t-shirt dress. Love, love, love it!

Linking up with "How Sweet The Sound" Pink Saturday Blog Party



These dresses will go into the Whigs & Tories Etsy shop.

Wintergreen Resort has snow

Wintergreen Snowblowing going strong

I'm sure you've heard. The South East part of Virginia and North East part of North Carolina received quite the snow storm last week. We took off for the mountains Friday night as it was starting, Saturday is snowed all the day up at Wintergreen and they were running the snow guns at the same time. Sunday was a beautiful sunny day. Our home town was buried under snow and no school for us so we stayed in the mountains. It was gorgeous!
