Girl Dress Simplicity

I used size 4 to make the dress, so it ended u a bit too long for the sleeves. I did fix that. 
And here is a video of the dress in action.

Charity Quilt 2017

My first quilt finish for 2017. 
This is a quilt kit put together by Ronald McDonald house quilting group. Has been with me for over a year before I pieced and quilted. I have one more kit that need to be pieced and quilted, hopefully doesn't take this long. The picture quality is not good. I need to improve my photo skills  as well as my indoor lighting.

Pieced top, photo bombed by my 3 year old.

Cute and creepy eyeglasses cozy.

Sewn my much needed glasses case. Started wearing them just a few months back and it makes reading so much better. Sewn one side to be cute and the other a little creepy, at least it looks creepy to me, trying to have some fun with it. This is  # 5 on my Q1 FAL List list as well.
