the itch and a giveaway

i've had the sewing itch for the past couple of weeks now. but i couldn't scratch it (sounds wrong, i know) until my student teaching portfolio was complete... well, look at what i finished!

i worked on this the past week hoping to have it ready early so i could take a few days to sew and work on other things around the house before Thanksgiving. it was a long process but i am so glad i finished... so as soon as i finished, i began working on a couple things i had been wanting to make... here they are minus a birthday gift.

dino shirts for some little guys

and a girly Christmas outfit for Sara

in honor of finishing my portfolio and Thanksgiving, i thought i would have a little giveaway. i've never had one here but have always wanted to... so here it goes, post a comment by Friday and then i will randomly choose the winner and send you this little goody!

hope you enjoy your monday!

sorry for the absence... school is winding down, which means finishing all of those requirements. it is going quite well. i love my students and my cooperating teacher!

have i mentioned that a certain little someone has learned to climb onto chairs? annoying as it might be ... she is so cute sitting in a "big girl" chair!

she is enjoying the big girl outlook that the chairs bring!

and a bow is definitely more important to an outfit than pants... can you tell?
have a good week!
