Birthday party and sewing saturday

Allison's 2nd birthday party went well.  Like her sisters it was all family.  we had spaghetti, ice cream cake, fruit and played.  She loved it! My house is small so everything looks like a mess but here is the place all decorated (the night before).

My older daughter caught me sewing and wanted a pillow and blanket for her baby.  This is a repurposed camisol :)  she loves it as you can see.

It wouldn't be sewing Saturday without some newer projects.  Here is the cat benie I made for my new niece  Sunna, for Christmas   we'll finally get to meet her next month.

I finally finished as much as I can on Gwenna's dress.  It looks odd to me and unfinished but I couldn't find black lace anywhere.  I guess it was out of stock at Walmart because the sewing section looked barren during Halloween and I haven't found exactly what i'm looking for since before then.

Here is a dragon hat for my nephew, Braxton, for Christmas.  We're having a reunion during Christmas and i'm so excited.  Hopefully I get to try some of the newer patterns I have for my other nephews.
They have the choice between a dragon, a cat, viking, bear, bunny, a pumpkin or an apple.  these patterns can be found at and these patterns are free.

Things I used:
polar fleece
fiber fill
Brother LS-1520
McCall's pattern 3737

My other news:  I took my girls to get their yearly checkup and I brought up the bump that has been gracing my daughter's belly for over a year now.  the Dr. took it seriously this time (note: different Dr. same office) and she's scheduled to see a surgeon later this month.  I've noticed that she's a picky eater but just thought it was her age.  she hasn't outgrown it in the last 3 years and now she tells me she doesn't like to eat cause it hurts her tummy (right where the bump is);  her growth has slowed a little but not dangerously.  we're thinking it's a hernia which isn't that big a deal but please keep her in your prayers that she continues to grow healthy and that that is all that it is.

Thanks & happy Crafting everyone!
