Okay, two posts in one day.  Since Mom didn't feel well, she stayed home and sewed for me!  She made me and some of my cousins Harry Potter robes.  She used a pattern that she bought at the Liberty Jane site.  It is by Miche Designs and is a really nice pattern.  Mom really likes Liberty Jane because the patterns fit my slim body so well and she can pay for them and download them instantly.

Here I am in my Gryffindor robe.  Mom did some research and learned that all the robes had a black lining until the third movie and then each house got a lining in it's own color.

See, here I am with my cousins, Kit, Naomi, Lizzie and me.  See, Lizzie is from Ravenclaw, so her robe is blue.  I just noticed that we are all blonds.

Mom got tired of sewing robes, so she took a break to sew me a new holiday dress.  She realized that I didn't have one this year.  This is from another Liberty Jane site pattern.  This pattern is by Heritage 4 and is called "The Wrap Top Dress."  It is a very versitile pattern because if you make it in a pretty cotton, it could be a sundress.  If you make it like Mom does, it is a fancy dress.


Here I am trying on the dress.  It is almost done, but not quite.  See, I have on my pants and loafers.
Mom made this dress before in orange.  This silver one will be nicer for the holiday season.

I'm really glad that my Mom sews.  I get some really neat clothes.

Do any of you have some pattern suggestions?


Wow, It's been a long time since I posted.  Mom got really sick over the holidays.  She had bronchitis and a sinus infection.  Luckily, she is better now.  I'm going to see if she'll post our holiday photos later in the week.

Now, on to the exciting news.  It snowed here!!  Okay, we only got about 1 1/2 inches of snow, but after the weird weather we've had, I'll take whatever I can get.  Of course, it came on Saturday so we didn't lose a day of school.  Bummer.

Here I am outside.  This is my fancy dress up coat, but it is the only one I have for right now.  It was cold outside.

I climbed up on the block wall.  You can see how much snow we got.
