A quick catwalk

Where has the time gone? I've been meaning to put these pictures up for a while now...

First up, a skirt for the Abs. Serged the bottom, cut the waist too small. Doh! Throw a quick placket fastening at it (and thanks to Jennie Chancey for introducing me to the idea!); problem solved.
Next, a skirt for Anna. Serged the bottom again, but this time experimented with some fold-over elastic. Worked okay, but I'm not completely sure I'm using it correctly. Still, first time and all.

Next, the cutest little dress for Ellie-ellie-pink-belly. Love the fabric, love the pattern, love the girl. So sweet, had to make two.

Next, a crochet baby blanket I'm in the midst of, for one of many new little girls. Still working on the Lady Sweater, but a girl needs a new view once in a while, you know?

And finally, the Book Sausage. While really just a weight for keeping Toby's book pages steady, he coined this wonderful phrase that cannot be rejected. Never did I think I would sew something that would feature the word "sausage" anywhere in the title. Of course, it wouldn't be for my husband if it wasn't in Batman fabric (thanks, Zo) and weren't being used for his building-a-treehouse book.
