Sandi of The Primitive Skate. Pictured above are the darling goodies that Sandi sent to me: big ole stuffed pumpkin, little wooden angel, embroidered kitchen towel, metal planter with beautiful crow and pumpkin painted on its front, little green bucket with a crow label and a stuffed pumpkin inside, Pumpkin Seed scented tart and three scented soaps, cute corn battery-powered light, and a vintage white metal bowl filled with a corn cob and some other little scented items. Aren't they all wonderful? What great Swap items. Sending many thanks to Sandi. To see what I sent to her, be sure to visit Sandi's blog and follow the link below my signature. Prim Autumn blessings.

'Hoping that you are all doing well and are happy. Early this morning, we had some nasty lightning and heavy rain. 'Kinda out of season, but it happened. It is so good to have the cooler weather during the night time. 'Looking forward to that cooler weather during the day time. It seems like September flew by so fast. Have you all been getting any rain or storms lately? Prim Autumn blessings.

Dandy Jane's Etsy Shoppe. This is the Pleat dress, and it is definitely one of my favorites. 'Love the front pleat. It can be either contrasting fabric, like this one, or sewn of the same fabric as the dress. The fabric is a cotton/polyester blend in a geometric-print lime green with aqua and avocado. Kinda unique and artsy, isn't it? To see this pattern's difficulty rating and its matching hair bow, follow the link below my signature.

Central Park Swing Coat. The jeans can be cut off to a capri length, or ankle length. The choice is yours. The jeans pictured above are the flare leg fit; they tend to work well for adding ruffles. These jeans are a size 4, ankle length. Each ruffle was cut at 6"X30". Then, simply sew the two shorter ends of each ruffle right sides together. Next, sew a narrow hem around the longer edge of each ruffle. Right sides together, pin each ruffle to each jeans leg with the edges even. Make sure that the ruffle's seam is aligned with the jeans' inside leg seam. Gather and stitch close to the edge, through the jeans and each ruffle. Due to the thickness, use a larger needle such as a number 14 or 16. If you do not have a serger, zig-zag or edge stitch each finished leg. Finis! Yay! That adorable little girl now has some fancy ruffled jeans!
