I'm in love...

I finished my quilt top for my bed! YEA!!!!! I LOVE IT!!!
I can't wait to get it quilted, bound, and on my bed.
Now I need to get some pillow shams and throw pillows made.
Don't worry, I just got a white bed skirt to replace the red one.
Hmmm... I love it!

I Dream

I dream, I hope, I sew, I smile, and I believe.

I enjoy creating, sewing,

and challenging myself with new projects.

Some of my best products have been inspired

by cookie cutters.

I hope to sew beautiful and unique items

which will be treasured

in loving homes around the world.

I believe life is a not a rush to get everything done,

but to do things well.

I am amazed

at where Dreaming of Stitches has gone in just this past year.

I dream about where to take Dreaming of Stitches.

I smile when I reach a goal

I never thought I could achieve.

I studied biology, psychology, and insect genetics.

Yes, I am a lab geek.

I worked as a DNA analyst

connecting families through paternity and genealogical tests.

I dream about becoming a genetic counselor,

but that dream will wait until my kids are older and grown.

I love being a mom and believe

the most important things I can do in life are with my children.

I play Princesses and Dora more than I ever thought I would.

I sew late at night and during nap time.

I wonder if the baby will stay asleep long enough.

I smile when my girls wrap their arms around me.

I believe in a loving God

and that families can be together forever.

I watched Etsy's Success video on writing a new profile. I have never been very confident in my writing skills so if you have any thoughts on how to make this better, please let me know. If you don't like it at all, let me know that also. I just wanted to do something different than "I'm a stay at home mom and I like to sew...."

Minnie Mouse Ruffle Bum Outfits

I made some adorable Minnie Mouse Ruffle Bum Pants Outfits for my girls for our recent trip to Disneyland. I love how cute they turned out. The hot pink shirts and black pants looked great. I used to have ruffle bum Minnie Mouse outfits in the Dreaming of Stitches shop. However, it is tricky to find the right size of black pants. I love making these cute outfits, but will offer them as custom orders and will work with you to get you exactly what you want. Please contact me for custom a custom order of these cute outfits if you are interested.

Cute little ruffle bums waiting to go on It's a Small World.
I am going to start offering a couple ruffle bum pants outfits which are read to ship. Look for the whale and watermelon in the shop in the next couple days. Both are offered in 18 M only.
I love to do the ruffle pants outfits, but am limited to seasonal colors and sizes in the stores. Please contact me for custom orders.
