I made Lena a Fall/Thanksgiving time dress. I wanted one with a long skirt and long sleeves. It was a little tricky to get the lengths right because I usually sew when she is sleeping. I am very happy with how it turned out. And it was all made from things I already had at home. (Thanks Klaudia - this is from three of the fabrics you gave me)

A week or two ago we went as a family to pick out pumpkins and Lena was wearing a Halloween dress that I had made. And of course she was looking as adorable as can be. As we went to pay for our pumpkins the lady helping us was saying how cute Lena was and how much she loved her dress. That made me feel good and I told her thank you. Then she asked me where I got it. I told her I made it and she was very sweet and told me exuberantly how wonderful it was and how talented I was and how adorable Lena was, etc. I was very flattered and a slight bit embarrassed. Then she asked me if she could pay me to make one for her. I was shocked at first and must have asked her "Really?" like five times. Then I said, "Sure, actually I already have a couple that are a little bit bigger and the fabrics are switched around. Would you want one of those?" She said yes and asked if I could bring it by sometime.
