The crazy lady that I am, I decided to start sewing a new gown for this weekend's event on Tuesday.
Here's the pattern and the new fabric. I used the JP Ryan Robe Anglaise pattern view A.
Lucy enjoyed helping me.
By Friday morning this is how far I had gotten.
I can't believe I did it, I finished the gown by Friday afternoon before we left for the event. There will be more pictures to come soon!

Ben and I recently got back from a trip to our nation's capitol. We went back there for a very special wedding and then the trip turned into an actual vacation with some time for visiting family too! I'm going to break our trip up into four separate posts for each location we went to. Upon arrival in D.C. we went out to dinner with our fabulous friends Ann and Asha and then of course had to go see the White House, the afternoon light made it glow.

For Mother's Day I wanted to create something special for my Grandma. She means so much to me and I wanted her to feel cherished. I started describing to Ben my intentions of creating something small that could fit in her little apartment, but something that would be meaningful. He came up with the great idea of making a miniature garden! And here it is!

Our wonderful friend Rebekah invited us to attend her family Seder dinner. She has a Jewish family background but the family are all strong Christians. This was the most amazing and interesting evening, I learned so much about the Jewish heritage and how it does tie into Christianity!

The strawberries are beginning to ripen, but we're not the only one noticing! The bird have been noticing too and having themselves a tasty little snack! Well this wouldn't do so we needed a solution, some faux strawberries to trick those birdies.

Every Tuesday night I am blessed to have some awesome friends come over to my house. We crochet and knit sweaters to be donated through World Vision International for young children. We've been working on them for quite a while but finally everyone was done and we're ready to send them off!
