Look! Rory finally accepts his pillow likeness! It was bound to happen eventually. ;)

Secret sewing is keeping me busy lately. I’ve been sneaking in these pillows and a dress for my girl to keep my sanity. The end of the year is sneaking up on us! I’ve already decided to try keep myself from signing up for swaps next year. I find the spur of the moment makes to be the most fulfilling. I also want to cut down my list since we’ll be renovating our house sometime next year and I’ll have to pack away my sewing stuff. Sigh. It’s gonna be a great year! I hope to squeeze in a few Christmas makes too. It’s gonna be tight!

I scored this super cute Popsicle fabric on sale. I just had to sew something up with it right away! Queue my second The Sally Dress.  Check out my first Sally dress here.



I decided to go sleeveless this time. It did hit 90 degrees again!



This sleeveless version sewed up so quickly. It just took a day…and not all day either. So fun!



My Popsicle princess!



She said the sweetest thing ever when we were changing her into Pjs. “Mom, can I put this over here so I can wear it again tomorrow?” I may have teared up a bit. Love :)
