Congrats Em!

Today, in her first horse judging competition as a "senior," Emelie placed 2nd! Quite the accomplishment considering this is only her second year on the team, and she was competing against high-schoolers. Way to go! We're so proud, Emelie! Read about the day in her words at HorseLovers Life.

And while my lovely daughter was working so hard, my mom and I went shopping at Joann Fabrics (ahhhhh - angels singing). I bought the fabric for the girls' Easter dresses. A little late, I know, but the California trip set me back a bit in the sewing plans.

After throwing together outfits from our stash last year, I was determined to make new this year. (Might be regretting this decision around 10pm on Easter Eve!)

The chocolate and aqua fabrics on the right are for the four girls' dresses and skirts. While I was there, I just had to pick up a little something for me - that's the green and chocolate prints. They were just begging to be made into a new purse. How could I say no?


  1. Oooh...I want one, I want one!!! :)

  2. I missed you this morning!! I can't wait to see the fruits of your sewing labor.
