her red dress and other things

When I made this dress a few months ago, I couldn't get her to put it on for a photo. And, she hasn't worn it until now since I did make it as a Christmas dress. It's the French Ruffle Dress from Mani Mina Oh, and there is a funny (now it's funny) story about her new haircut. It involves her older brother (age 5), herself and some embroidery scissors. Let's just say she now has a comb over.

Also, here is the pattern from my mom for the Magic Pillowcases that I shared here.

And, I have been making this english toffee for friends and as a favor to a friend and thought I would reshare it. When my mother in law and I made it the other night, we added dark chocolate chips instead of semi sweet and it was soooooo good. It's an elegant candy that is super simple to make.

That dress is adorable, when I saw the picture I immediately wanted to go make one! And what are Christmas-time pictures without a home-haircut story to go along with them?

Your toffee looks and sounds wonnnnderful, I think it's made its way into my holiday gift baskets this year :-)

I never sew anything but you always make me want to try! :) What a pretty dress and adorable little girl even if she had a mishap haircut. Whoops!
