Christmas Concert Dress

Rubes has her first Christmas Concert next week so a "new" outfit was in order for the special event. Here's what I came up with... at a cost of maybe 50 cents for thread. The red top came from my niece, Lauren. The white ruffles were from a thrift shop skirt refashion left over. The print fabric came from my late grandmother stash, once upon a time a shirt. Oh, I took the elastic for the waist band from a pair of lounge pants.

Had to dress-up the sweater with a lil' pin!

Rubes loves ruffles these days and I finally feel like I've got the hang of making them.

I'm very pleased with the way this all came together and how quickly as well. I'm thinking a few ruffly skirt may show up under the tree.

I'm a busy gal these days with the holiday crafting but thought I'd share some goodness that's in my life right now. A few wonders I didn't have to make. We'll start with "Maisy"... a happy miniature wiener dog. Here's a typical view of her in my lap. Ah, the love.

I've got two nephews in the past two months. Ben here has the cutest "chubbies" and is a real snuggler. Holding him is wonderfully sweet.

Next up is lil' Eli at only 2weeks old, he's already a charmer. So bright eyed when he's awake! (His shirt says "Gobble till you Waddle".)

These were taken at Thanksgiving with my family at the farm. (Thus the turkey on a stick!) I'm truly blessed.
