Everything was beautiful at the ballet

Megan is in her 9th year of ballet and this year her ballet school started a Junior Company.  And of course they needed costumes!  So, I set to work with a team of moms on one of the biggest sewing projects of my career.  19 Coppelia costumes later...

And just in case you thought ballerinas were all serious and sophisticated...

There is also a lot of this going on backstage.

You made what???

A big part of my return to blogging is to chronicle my sewing projects.  See, I have made oodles of cute hand-sewn items to give as gifts, and then never took a picture..posted a picture..saved a picture etc...  Heck, I don't even remember half of the things I made.  So, hopefully, my return to blogging will provide a beautiful record of all of the things I've made.  I might also include tutorials and some helpful household hints.

My latest project was 12 beautiful ties (and a ring bearer bow-tie) for a wedding.  We adore the bride and the groom and so it was a pleasure to make something special for their big day.

Breakfast at Tiffany's

Today, we celebrated Megan's 13th birthday.  (Uh...hello??? How did I become a parent of a teenager?)  We invited her friends over for a "Breakfast at Tiffany's" inspired brunch.

I'm Back...
