Christmas project and photos

This Christmas one of my projects was to make my daughters Christmas dress. Of course she had to design it so I was left to get the finished product complete. The material she chose was absolutely horrible to sew. It had a bit of stretch to it so it kept puckering and jumbling up the stitches. I am happy with the final product though, as was my daughter as you might be able to tell. Not bad for working from a child's sketch and no pattern. she wanted it to look like Belle's Christmas dress from the Beauty and the beast Christmas movie. I think it looks somewhat medieval.

Here is a view (or at least part of)the back of the dress.

Christmas was pretty quiet around here except for the kiddies being all excited with the pressies. the biggest kid of all was our furbaby Sunflower. She seemed to have gotten more pressies than anyone.

I think this is her favourite time of the year

She loves her pressies. Especially her new collar. See it on her? She did not want to take it off.

Now here is another thing my daughter talked us into over the holiday. Have you ever hear of the little fishes at "Happy Feet" that eat away the dead skin from your feet to make them softer? Well they just opened one in York and my daughter convinced us to go. It was so weird. The fish just go crazy attacking your feet like little piranhas without teeth. It really tickles but does work. Although I do not know if I could sit through it again. My daughter loved it. Definitely a weird experience.

So that was a little of what we have been up to over the past few days. I hope you have all had a wonderful Christmas. I am hoping to get to some crafting tomorrow , it is supposed to snow so I am hoping for a bit of a snow day. Not too much just enough to make it a nice day in. Have a great evening and thanks for stopping in. Angela

Your daughter's dress turned out beautifully! Love your pretty tree too! Sunflower seems to be having a splendid time ~ love how she's opening up her own gifts!

Now about the fish thing....I don't think I could do that. Looks a little weird to me! : )

Belle has a good eye for design and you have brought it to life beautifully. Glad to hear you had a good Christmas and I hope your New Year is equally as good. Happy New Year. :-) xx
