Busy Life Makes Me Happy

There is SO MUCH going on but yet I can't talk about any of it yet! 
I have been testing for 2 pattern designers and until they are released its lips zipped! Thats hard for me as I am so excited about both of these patterns! 1 is a really awesome flared shirt from Pickle Toes Patterns. That description doesn't even do it justice. I LOVE THIS TOP...
The second test is this AMAZING and feminine vintage Tea dress..It is so unbelievably beautiful.The pattern designer is Designer Stitch. It is with out a doubt one of my most favorite dresses ever. If you know me that says a lot. I have a small addiction to White House Black Market, but this dress is better then any I have bought from them.
 I can't wait to share them both.
In the meantime I am trying to keep up and in fact catch up on my 52 week challenge. I have 1 week to catch up and I have that project on the table right now..
The project below was this last weeks challenge sew something from felt. So for an upcoming costum…

Bella Sunshine Designs Clementine Dress

In the sewing world there are a lot of Myths. One is that you should never combine stretch knits with wovens...Well the Clementine proves that myth to be false!
I was so excited to be chosen as a tester for this dress. The moment I saw it I knew it would become a staple in my closet. I mean how much better can it get! I can use all my favorite knits and the world is open to use a woven with or with out bands for the skirt!
There are 3 different sleeve lengths along with lengths to take it from a maxi to a sassy little shirt. It is LOVE with this pattern. I have a few more planned out. 
The instructions were on point and so very easy to follow. Bella Sunshine designs will definitely be a one of my go to designers.  Its on sale through the end of tomorrow. It would be sad to miss this pattern....

Home Sweet Home

What a busy last 2 weeks! Our friends showed up and we headed out to our cruise on the Norwegian Sky. It was just a short little cruise. All of 3 nights
but SO MUCH fun! Its one we will do again.

The first stop was a private island called Great Stirrup Cay. This island was so amazing with all food and drink included. The water was so blue and oh so warm!

The second stop was Nassau Bahamas. After Great Stirrup Cay we were left slightly disappointed. We didn't want to go to Atlantis so we toured through the city and then found a little beach a short cab ride away.

 The water was still quite beautiful and warm but the beach was not as clean and there was definitely no people watching.

So after swimming a bit and laying on the beach we headed back to town. We were all hungry so we made a pit stop for Nachos at Senior Froggys.

They were really very good and the portions were huge! But paying 7$ plus for a beer was a little hard to do..

I am thinking the next time we do this cruise we
