Christmas is Coming: Day 23

With the first Christmas celebration only a day away, I had almost given up on this last project. I just decided I didn't want to get all stressed out about a sewing project. True, I really wanted Brynn to have her new Christmas Dress, but she has three older cousins who have passed down awesome hand-me-downs made by Grammies and Aunties, so she didn't really need it. However, Friday arrived and I was in much better shape then I expected. I thought, I'll work on it today, and if it gets done, great, and if not, I'll be fine with that. I don't think I would have been fine with that, because I was way to excited when I got it done!
This was my first experience with a Mandarin collar. They certainly are more work, what with all the extra interfacings and facings, but they are super cute!

And can you believe it, while I finished hemming and sewing on buttons, Aaron made cookies! From mixing to baking, the man did it all on his own. I LOVE my husband.

Merry Christmas!

Super cute dress, very unique!

Aaron making cookies? Hmmm, well I guess that's where it all began for Tristan, so why not Aaron? When the desire for the end result is strong enough, the motivation factor kicks in.
