T-Ball has begun!

Today we experienced Hayden's First T-Ball game!  We had a great time, got some awesome photos, and enjoyed the park!
Here is Hayden's first attempt up at Bat! (please ignore my screachy voice!)

Some of my recent projects....

Here are some of my most recent projects....
I went to a "Thirty One" Party and saw these all in one organizers.  I thought "before I buy one, I wanted to see if I can make one." And that I did, but not without a few flops... Literally.
The first one I did was made with vinyl on the inside and fabric on the outside.  The vinyl made it very difficult to sew.

The second one, I used a fleece for the inside lining, and it wasn't nearly stiff enough to hold the bag together, but it is still useful.
The 3rd and 4th ones turned out more like I expected. The outside pockets are the clear vinyl.  On the original bags from thirty one, they used a mesh. I didn't have any, so I used just what I had on hand. I am going to use these for the kids Easter Baskets!

I had some leftover fabric from the kids Easter outfits, so I tried my hand at a bag.  It was supposed to be a purse but it turned out to be more like a diaper bag.  
 Here are the kids Easter outfits!  Hayden isn't wearing the correct shirt, but you get the point! 
I found a pattern at the local salvation army, and made him a few pairs of shorts.  I really like the way they turned out and will probably be making him a few more pairs for this summer.

This is another attempt at a dress for Ady.  Hated the pattern I used, but she likes it (even though the face she has could tell otherwise.) Probably will not make another from this pattern again.

I made Ady this "St. Patricks Day" Dress.  You can't really tell by the photo, but it says lucky on the front of it.
 Last but not least, I made Ady a halter top.  I love the fabric!
