Pillowcase Dress

Just in time for Thanksgiving.   I finished my first pillowcase dress for Mia, it was super easy.  Of course when making a pattern for the first time you have to allow for some learning curve :)  Thanks to Kerri for working on it with me.  Now, off to find more fabric to make some more.

Today I received the Lilli Kelly shoes ordered from Shoes.com........................do you see anything wrong with this order????
The shoe on your right is the correct shoe......
Can you believe they put 2 totally different shoes in this box and shipped it out???  WTF?  One is pink and the other is white......one is a Mary Jane and one is a Tennis shoe.
They said they would make it right and sent out another pair (hopefully I get 2 of the same shoes) and gave me another 20% off.   :)    Guess these must have been packaged on a Friday at 5pm and someone was not interested in checking the box before they sealed it.

Our little pirate

Strabismus, heard of it?  
We noticed last month Mia's right eye would sometimes drift off laterally then back to normal when she was looking at something in the distance.  After watching her for a few days we decided it was time for her to see an eye specialist...a pediatric eye specialist. 

Our suspicion is correct, she has Strabismus in the right eye.  She will have to wear a patch on her eyes, alternating eyes every night for 2 hours for 4 months then we return for a re-check.  Hopefully this will correct itself, otherwise she will need to have surgery to repair the 
muscles in her eye.

She did pretty great tonight wearing her patch for the first time. They come is all kinds of groovy colors too.
