Getting Caught Up

How do you feel when you have a lot to do?  Do you make lists?  Do you stay on one task until it is complete?  For me, it depends on what I am doing.  If I am cleaning house, I tend to let some ADD take over.  I end up starting things in 3 different rooms.  I do eventually get the house clean, but there is  not a system.  Now, with my smocking, I tend to stay on one outfit until it is complete.  I don't know why, but I have a hard time moving on to another order when I have one started.

Now, that Spring is past and my orders are complete, I feel like I have accomplished a lot.  Yet, my brain is still thinking about the next idea.  I just can seem to stop the desire to make cute things.  This week, I feel the need to make a new dress and try out some of my embroidered t-shirt ideas.  I did finish one t-shirt idea.  I love the way it turned out.  What do you think?

I have actually worn this one.  I made this after seeing the movie.  By the way, great movie.  There are a few other ideas floating around in my head from that movie.  I have yet to get them on a t-shirt, but just wait.  I will have some samples before you know it.

My other projects for the season has been sister dresses and BFF dresses.  The sister dress are a ton of fun and I love getting customer pictures.  Here is one:

I love the smiles and the matching green chevron fabric.  I hope these two little ones will be able to wear these for a long time.

My next order was for a friend of mine.  Her daughter and her daughter's friend wanted matching dresses.  My friend LOVED the flip flop dress.  So, we decided to make a green chevron dress and a aqua chevron dress.  They turned out lovely.  I do not have pictures of the girls in the dresses...yet.  I need to get my wonderful husband to put on his photographer hat.  He does such a great job.  Anyway, here is a picture of the dresses that I took.

Yes, these are for older girls.  One dress is a size 7 and the other is a size 10.  However, I made them long, because the girls are tall.  I admit, I was worried about the aqua dress, but it is great.

Now, I am sitting here updating my blog, and thinking about another sun dress.  I have it planned out in my head.  Let's just hope that the finished product ends up looking like the picture in my head.  That would be awesome, because this picture in my head is great.

Finally, if you have any ideas that you would like to see, let me know.  In fact, you could post them right here in the comments.  You could also post them on my Facebook page if you like.

Have a great Monday, and a blessed week.  See you here next week.
