Drum roll please...

Reid's Christmas outfit is ready (minus a few details) ahead of schedule!
I'm so proud of myself for finishing a little early!
And here it is...

The pattern is Little Formalities, by Little Memories, View B.
I must say this pattern took some concentrating.
I had to think really hard, turn off the TV, and follow the directions really carefully!
I'm sure now that I've made it once it wouldn't be so hard to make it again.

I made little covered buttons, which oddly, I have never done before!?!
They were really easy and I wish I'd tried them before.
I just bought the little Dritz brand covered button package and voila!

The plate is Waiting for Santa, by Junebug Designs.

Can't wait to see my little GRAND boy in his outfit!
Christmas card photos will be taken next weekend. :)

I just have to say thank you to Michie' for mentioning my blog on her blog.
My goodness, it's like being on Oprah's Book Club list!
I have had far more views in a week than I had in the 4 months since I started this blog!
So thanks, Michie'!
I am a bit of a blog stalker on
You are an inspiration!

I know y'all are busy working on Christmas outfits...
Send me pictures when you finish!

Happy Sewing!
