Jan 2015 Recap

I've been busy working on things, but nothing I can show yet ;-)
We have also been very busy at home with a new puppy.
I was sooooooooo excited to get one..... and I forgot how much work they can be!

Exhausting. Plus, he chews everything and is super needy.  Our Nala was not like that at all. So it is a transition for us all.  We picked up Link from a shelter in Minneapolis over a week ago.  I'll share some cute puppy pics.  He is a miniature dachshund mix.

As for January sewing, here is the recap.

12 items, 13 yards of fabric. Total cost of fabric: $75.06

How did I do for Jan with my resolutions?
1 new pattern: yes, 2!
1 new Burda/Otto: yes, 2!
1 fabric stash: yes, 4ish!
1 me make each month in 2015: yes! 3

And lastly, but certainly not least, it is Miss K's 9th birthday today.  Time flies, enjoy your little ones while you can!

  1. Happy Birthday to your daughter today!! It is crazy how fast time flies. I keep telling my kids that. They think time drags by and I feel like I can't keep up...the days are just rolling by. We have a digital picture frame and I have all my favorites of when they were little and I love looking at it. If only I could step back in time for a moment to spend with my little babies again....sigh. You have been busy sewing!

    1. Thanks Shirley! Kids just don't listen when we say that to them! lol. I should get one of those digital frames. I used to love watching a co-worker's frame and also my grandma had one. Oh I wish I could go back to them being babies. If only for a day. I would have not been so busy and enjoyed every snuggle :)

  2. Awwwwwwww! Happy Birthday Ms. K!!!!!

  3. Happy Birthday to Miss K!!! Time does go by so fast - each year I realize that more and more. It's crazy to think how much happens in a year too. The first picture of her is adorable! It looks like you have been busy sewing too! I have a total of one for January, but I have things in progress.

    1. Thank you Elizabeth! When I was little time felt like it moved so slow. No I understand why adults always told me to enjoy youth while I could! I loved your Jan make, it was a good one :)

  4. Happy Birthday, Miss K! Time does pass in the blink of an eye.:)

    Good job on your resolutions thus far. Enjoy that new puppy!

    1. Thanks Cindy! :) I hope I can keep up (with both the resolutions and the puppy! lol)

  5. Wow, new puppies are a lot of work! But cute makes up for it (mostly, hehe).

    Time sure does fly. My middle girl will be 9 this Sunday.

    1. Happy Birthday, my baby is 11 next week!

    2. aw 11 is such a fun age though. ;-) Thanks!

    3. Oh Joy, this puppy seems like extra work! hahaha. he is so cute though, as he destroys my house!

      I forget that your middle gal is the same age as K :) She looks so much younger on screen!
