Groovy 'Shroom Dress and New House

So it's been a few weeks since I last updated... reason being, we moved!  Finally got off of on-post housing and into a rental house.  We decided to UHaul it, and... well... discovered that we aren't exactly the best movers.  Live and learn, right?

We did manage to finally get everything all set up (mostly), and I sat down and was able to sew for the first time today.  I decided to take it nice and slow and just finish a project that I had started at the "old" house.  I had the pieces all cut, just had to sew it together.

Groovy 'Shroom Dress

As I said, nice and easy.  The fabric came from Joann's, and the tutorial can be found here:  Prudent Baby Long-Sleeve Dress Tutorial

It was super-easy... the perfect thing to make if you're limited to "nap time crafty hour".  :)

As for the new house, the kids are having a blast.  They practically live in the backyard.
Weenie likes it too. 

One other perk is that I finally have enough room to have a craft room.  YIPPEE!  I've been waiting for awhile now, and can't wait to finally have some room to spread out and really have the room to work.  It's going to be a big improvement over my scary "craft closet".  Will keep you posted, but I see a trip to IKEA in the future.
In the meantime, I used the moving boxes to finally get my fabric semi-organized.  It's still a work in progress.
