Really, I know a gazillion people have already linked to Kathleen Dougherty's awesome fantastic Grosgrain blog where she sews fantastic children's clothes and then GIVES them away, but her latest is too amazing not to post about.
By doing so, I'm entering her contest to win this fabulous Marie-Thérèse gown. Seriously, if you don't read her blog, you need to get over there and take a look, and probably stay for a while. Through serendipitous clicking I found her blog and subscribed immediately. I think it helps that my daughter is on the smaller size of the dresses/clothes that she's usually giving away. I've never entered one of her contests before, though I've been seriously tempted, but this one blows everything out of the water. Really. Even if you don't have little girls, her clothes are so sweet to look at, so please do just that.
In the bat boy news, I've got him all finished up except his wings, oh, and his second ear, and part of his tail. But other than that, he is finished. I'm seriously always behind on holidays, but I can only keep hoping that one day I'll be ahead of the curve. Hopefully I have some sympathizers.
I do know how I want to do the wings, I've planned the pattern in my head when I'm supposed to be sleeping, so I haven't gotten up and actually tried it, but I'm pretty sure it's going to work. Lately, I've found that planning patterns while I'm going to sleep is actually becoming an effective way for me to fall asleep; except it's sometimes not the best plan for remembering my actual plans :)
