Leia's new dress

I have been meaning to get some sewing done but have just been too busy with the kids and too tired at night so nothing is coming out of my workshop. But, I did manage to finish up this dress I made for Leia a while back and I think it was the perfect get-back-into-sewing-project I could have ever done. I hand dyed the material and then used one of my go to 2 year old pattern from Weekend Sewing. The best part was Leia helping me make it and then wanting to put it on as soon as it was completed and then as if she hadn't already made me feel like the luckiest mom in the world she says thank you over and over again as she dances in her new dress. My mom crocheted some flowers for me when I was home visiting so I put a bead in one of them and added it to the dress. Leia loves the flower just as much as she loves the dress.

Relief Society Pot Luck Lunch for Enrichment

We had a Relief Society Enrichment Pot Luck lunch last month and it was soooo much fun. I love spending time with all these wonderful ladies, especially after being gone for so long.

Back in Grenada

Well folks, we made it back to Grenada safe and sound. The first thing we did was hit some of our favorite beaches. This one is La Sagesse and it is always GORGEOUS!

Here Memphis is taking it all in, one dip in the ocean at a time! 

I love how blue the sky and water are, it truly is a wonder how beautiful our world can be sometimes.
