Hey Everyone!
I don't know what it is about summer time that makes me want to write - especially twice in one week! Well, I do have to show off our newest foster boy Dexter. {Italian Greyhound}.
He's a doll. It's only been a few days but he seems to be slowly adjusting. The first night he cried until about midnight. Not too much Wednesday or last night. He reminds me of our very first foster, Dante.

He was an owner surrender. His "daddy" had him since a pup and he's about 7-8 years old. He is quite the escape artist and Animal Control told the owner that if he ran away again, Dexter would not be returned home. He was able to go to work with his Daddy but it couldn't be a permanent thing. Dexter is so lucky he wasn't injured while escaping or hit by a car while on his escapades. He is such a sweet boy. He'll get a check up next week and we've already started his diet. He is a "biggie Iggy" and needs to shed about five pounds.  His crying just kills me. He keeps looking out the window for his master.  He does have a lot of good moments though.  He loves playing with our girls and running around the yard. We're so happy to get to be part of his life and help him find his forever home!

On the crafty side of life...I've been busy making gifts for birthdays and new babies. Can you guess what this might be?
These cute little bibs for a new baby in town... Pattern from my friend @AmyDunn.
These little dresses I made for our girls. We went to a July 4th doggie playdate and I had to make sure they were all fancy & flashy!

Thanks for looking & hope you're enjoying your summer!

Till Next Time,

Owl Pillow / PJ Holder

Hey everyone!
So over the weekend I was thinking of something practical to sew up for one of my nieces for her birthday. I ran across this adorable Owl Pillow/PJ holder from
Of course I have way too much fabric so it was just a matter of selecting pieces that went together well. 
I sketched freehand my own patten and started cutting away. I had to add some bling so I stitched sequins across the beak. I added larger sequins on the "feet" to look like toes. On the back zipper I added a beaded zipper pull. It was fun to make and came together pretty quickly!
The best part is that my niece loves it. The pouch in front will be handy to stash her toothbrush when she has sleepovers.
