Cassandra's New Baby

Yes, it's true. My stepdaughter Cassandra has a new baby. He's adorable. I could sit and cuddle him all day. We all love him to death. And his name is Wheezy.

Don't you just love that little face? Wheezy is a miniature dachshund, so he will always be small and adorable. He'll probably grow to about eleven pounds of scampering fun.

On the sewing front, I have made myself a dress! Another item for my fall/winter wardrobe. It is from Burda #7828.

I love this pattern. I've made it at least five times, as both a top and dress, with all different sleeves. It is so comfortable to wear, and very quick and easy to make. In fact, I made this dress in an afternoon.

Please forgive my rotten pics, it was dark when I took them! I absolutely love this fabric, and I'm disappointed that the true colours don't really show. The lighter colour is much richer than it looks in the pic. Oh well, not much I can do. I plan on wearing this dress with my knee high chocolate brown suede slouchy boots. What do you think? Now I need a new necklace! Any ideas? I'd love to hear them! Anne

  10. Oh, I like that dress! I would love an easy wrap dress pattern - I will need to look this one up!

    And the puppy is so sweet.

    I think gold colored jewelry would be good with the dress, but I'm no expert ... :)
