A Lovely Year of Finishes – August Goals Party

alyof2015Hi Everyone! I am coming to you live from my new desktop computer. Talk about a learning curve…geez!  My goal for this month is to make Anne a back to school dress. She will be starting Kindergarten and that is sort of a big deal in our lives. I know one of us will be crying on the first day of school and I also know that it won’t be her! She’s so ready and I just want to hold tight so badly…

Anne's 2014 First Day - https://www.sewbittersweetdesigns.comThis is her dress from last year, which coincidentally just won a blue ribbon at my local county fair this week! This week we will be picking out fabrics and a pattern, then later this month I will be sewing my heart out (and probably crying my heart out too).

How about you?

What one item will you choose?

You have two requirements to be entered into the prizes this month.

1. Link-up {on this post} the first 7-days of the month

Please choose ONE project


2. Link-up in the last 7-days of the month

Only with a completed, successful project.  And yes the same one that you choose earlier in the month.

Add your blog post or flickr photo (with appropriate descriptions) to the linky party below.

Please grab a button or link back to Shanna and I so other people can join in the fun!

And if you are on twitter or Instagram tag #ALYoF

**Please note, the linky party is the same here and over at Shanna, so there is no need to enter twice **

  1. Anne is such a doll! Enjoy your sewing. I loved making dresses for my daughter when she was that age.

    It’s hard to believe another whole year has gone by. I look forward to seeing what you make for this year. And how much she’s grown! We can’t hold them back, but she’ll be a beautiful young woman, like her mother.

  3. Great idea to make a new dress for the first day of school. I like the white board to show the details.
