My Work Space/Worken' Weekend
My 11yr old thinks this blogging thing is fabulous. She has decided to take pictures of everything for me, as I have found when I upload my pictures.

I headed up a dress-widening project for my rapidly growing pre-teen, and made the dress-shirt-gone-dress I will post soon. Sneak peak:
