Sometimes I get the hankering to make something. I'm not a really crafty person but enjoy making simple projects. It's all about instant gratification. I took up knitting a few years back, and though I can knit a scarf or a beanie hat, it can take too long. I have to be in the right mood. Anyway, lately I've been wanting to sew something and try my hand at appliqué. It's a way to relieve some of this adoption anxiety! I made the dress below for my dear friend Shelli's little girl. The shirt with the bird silhouette is for Amanda's adorable little girl, Naomi. (Shelli and Amanda are friends from church, and they're sisters, too). The whale one I made for Darya (it was a hand-me-down and had a stain - the whale strategically covers it!). Now I want to make a bunch of appliqué shirts! It was so fun, so easy, and there are so many cute ideas on etsy.com and elsewhere on the web. Watch out friends, you might find yourself the victim of one of my next craft project! Just hope that it's not a toaster cover ;-)
Oh, also today I received a voicemail from the Missouri USCIS office and the officer is going to be keeping an eye out for our home study! I hope we get our finger print appointments soon!!!
