please don't look closely!



Because this was my first time...

Sorry for the picture quality...I'm really starting to get annoyed with my hot pink, Fugifilm, point and clicker...it's a good purse camera no doubt about that, when I was choosing my camera I had no idea what I was doing, I only liked it because it was pink...I know now that I definitely need something with a lens.

My cupcake is very obviously crooked haha! but other than that, when I first started I was seriously confused...and then by the time I got halfway done I started to figure it out...it shows in my stitching. I have been perusing blogs and admiring everyone's beautiful applique and embroidery...I've been longing to try it for myself. My mom makes it look as easy as breathing...I've been so used to watching her whip up genious works of art out of seemingly nothing...I just assumed I would be able to pick up a needle and go....not so much.

But at the advice of the all-knowing MOM I went to Wal-Mart and bought the cheapest articles of clothing I could find to practice on...and these are my results so far...these will probably just be used as play clothes or go-to-the-park-get-dirty clothes.

I'm looking forward to getting better. and in the meantime...I'll be making a lot of play clothes :)

And now I can't resist to share the latest Bella-ism with you...I showed her the pants after I had finished, she looked at them for a second, touched them, and in a very matter-of-fact voice she said, "Oh! cute tweet-tweets." Just like that.

Cute as can be!! I think you are more talented than you give credit. Also, it seems to me that you are able to breathe and produce gorgeous things just as easily as your mom!

Very cute! I've always let my lack of sewing machine/skills keep me from these crafty projects, but I just LOVE your cupcake!

wonder if I could hand sew one?

Ok, I totally know what you mean about being excited about your dirt. I can't wait to use mine as well. Everyone in the house has gotten into the entire compost thing and we love it!
