Maddy Sews

The other day, my niece had a sleepover at my house. This doesn't happen very often due to the hour long car ride (one way) between us. Since I have been doing some sewing projects, and Madelyn was interested in the things that I made... I offered to help her make something of her own. Here she is, mostly doing the whole thing on her own... with only being directed by me! (Please don't mind her unruly hair... she had just gotten out of the shower and we hadn't "done each others hair" yet. Also, don't mind my disheveled craft room!)
She did a pretty good job... and she was VERY excited!!

I also wanted to share a picture of the giveaway items I won from over at JJ's... (check out her blog for an easy make-it-yourself granola recipe... I am looking forward to trying this recipe soon!)
I *won* the zipper pouch (totally cute!)... but she also included a little sticky chicky notepad and a handmade dish cloth (my fav kind to use!)... oh yes, she also included some jelly beans, but Cory confiscated those to take with him to work before I could include them in the picture! Thanks JJ!!

Check back to my blog tomorrow for my very own giveaway celebrating my 300th post!!!


  1. Your niece is adorable! I bet she had a good time with Aunt Nen! (oddly enough, that's what my "name" will be for my friend's baby!)

    My hubs ate all the candy from the valentine's day swap box you sent me. I think men have sugar-radar or something. lol

    I'm excited for your giveaway! :)

  2. Looks like she did a great job sewing! A great example to help her to do it herself. I wonder if she's caught the sewing bug! She loves to try things like that and be creative!

  3. Maddy is so adorable! She will remember that experience for all time. You gave your time to her. That is a truly special gift! I love the dish towel. Too pretty to use!

  4. Aw, look at my sweet girl sewing!!! I love it!! Thanks for posting about this! I will have to link to this post from my blog so my readers can check it out too! :)

    And congrats on your almost 300th post! (would you believe...I am almost to my 800th post? Isn't that seem so horrid?)

    Aha! I see mom has commented on your blog again...ya know, she never comments on mine... ;) I like to give her a hard time about it! :oP

    I love the zippy pouch you won and JJ did a great job with the dish cloth too!!! :)

  5. Oh...insert foot in mouth...I just noticed mom finally *did* comment on my blog! ;) hehe

  6. Thanks for the lovely comment :) And for letting me know about your giveaway!

    how sweet is your niece! I think it's so great that you are sewing together. A wonderful skill to pass down.

  7. Wow, I wish I could make something that turned out that well.


Thanks for stopping by! I love to hear what you have to say!
