A Little Bragging...

Back in March I had posted a pic of a sewing pattern and pile of fabric, for a dress I was making for my daughter for her Junior Ring Ball at Norwich University.  Since she wasn't here for me to take pictures, I had to wait for her to send me some.  Finally have those.  She looked beautiful!  Thankfully the dress was a perfect fit, and she loved it.  I also made her a matching purse, something I have done since she was a little girl.  She has all the dresses and purses (and some hats) that I made for her in her closet. 


This past Saturday was also my son's Senior Prom.  I was a bit taken aback at the cost of renting a tuxedo, but it was definitely worth every penny when I saw him.  He looked so handsome!  He's a jeans or cargo shorts, T-shirt, and sneakers guy - as are most teenagers, but he sure cleans up good!  :)  Was like nailing Jello to a tree to get him to stand still long enough to take a picture, but I managed.  : )  Tyler and I got back Saturday around noon from his State Competition in Waco, where he had two architecture projects qualify.  We found out his 3D bed & breakfast project took first place!  I'm so proud of both of my wonderful children!! 

And...here they are!
