Pattern Testing, Day of the Dead and AWESOME Readers!

LOL I love the long, crazy titles!!!!

I was offered a lovely opportunity to test a pattern for Squiggly Twigs Designs. I just finished testing the Simply Lovely Dress pattern and I LOOOOOOOOVE it!!!!! The instructions were very easy to follow and she adds in little helpful hints. AWESOME!! If you are a beginner, then I would definitely try this out!! If you aren't a beginner, I would STILL try this out! LOL ;)

Here are my pics!

Please excuse the wrinkles. I had it ALLLLL ironed out UNTIL Cailey put it on. LOL ;)

Cailey is very excited about wearing this to church tomorrow!!! And I am wishing that I had bought enough fabric to make a matching skirt for ME! LOL

About a month ago I promised my cousin that I would make her SOOOOO STINKING CUTE son a pair of Day of the Dead shorts. Well.... It's taken me THIS long to get around to it so I made pants instead. LOL Here they are!

I have never made anything that small!! LOL I sure hope they fit! I added a cuff at the bottom so that hopefully they can grow with him. :)

Now, on to AWESOME READERS!!!!! I was soooo amazed to learn that I was nominated for the Good Neighbor Award over at Pillows A-La-Mode.  SOOOOOOO amazing!!!! This award is basically from the readers! You should go read the lovely things that were said about all the nominees. It made me tear up. LOL I am such a softy!! So I want to say a great big, GINORMOUS THANK YOU to any readers that may have nominated or voted for me. THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can't for the life of me figure out WHY... LOL ;)

I am feeling MUCH better today! YAY!!!! I got enough sleep and made myself eat. That seems to have done wonders! LOL The tooth is still there nagging me but it has gotten better! SHEW!!!! Thank you all SO much for the prayers!!! We all know how much help they are!! I think since The Hubby has night shift again next week that we will take the week off from school. I can't seem to deal well with only a few hours of sleep a day! LOL I was going to bed between 3:30 and 4:30 and getting up between 7:30 and 8:30. NOT good! Even with a nap here and there it just wasn't cutting it.
