Not a night fury, but a little sister!  She has lost 6 teeth now and is missing her two front ones. :-)

For the longest time she wouldn't let anyone go near her mouth and she wouldn't eat anything so that the food would pull the tooth out.  Then she just woke up one morning and wanted it out.  I told her to go have Mommy pull it out.  She looked at me like it was a brilliant idea and said "Ok."
 :-)  She is such a goof

 I love watching her grow up.

Thanks for being my sister Emm!

Caribbean Cruise Part 3 - Photo albums

Hey guys!  It is taking to long to upload all the photos from the cruise and I already have them on facebook so I'm just going to post the links to the albums!

Be advised, my cousins wear bikinis.  Just in case there are any guys who happen to read this blog, I am not trying to stumble you.

Lime Summer dress progress

 I've finished the bodice of my lime green dress!  But I'm having a little more trouble than I though I would.
 You see, I ordered this lime organdy from (for $1.95 a yard!) and when I got it I saw that it was really sheer and stiff.  That is what I get for ordering a fabric I've never used online. :-)  So I decided to line it in 5mm Silk Habotai. Boy, oh boy.  I had no idea what I was getting into. :-)  I've never used 100% silk (Dharma Trading Co. btw.) before.  5mm silk is super thin.  The silk is so sheer it hardly helps! (picture on right)  So even after every piece is interlined in silk I'm still going to have to wear some sort of dress slip.  I don't like slips. :-( Oh well, I still am excited about the dress.

I am making view A without the ribbon.

BTW.  Silk is a pain.
