another little dress and a big race

Thought I'd share a few pictures of Finley in another little dress I made her.  It is another Leila and Ben dress, so it was quick and easy.
I used Farmdale chickens for this one, I love that print.  Plus I got it from Joann's with a 50% off coupon!  We've gotten a lot of wear out of it already.  It is a little cooler here lately, so she has been wearing leggings underneath.
This past weekend was an exiting one for us... Steve ran his first marathon!  He has been training for months, and he did a really great job.  He met his goal, and I couldn't be any prouder.
Now I'd like to run one.  Which is a little bit nuts, I never thought I'd say that!  I have been running since I was in junior high, but never anything longer than a 10K (6.3 miles).  Maybe once the kids are a bit older, and I have more time to devote to running.  We'll see. :)
 And here are a couple post-race shots.  We are both a little beat here... it was a long day!

  9. Super sweet! Congrats to your husband on the marathon! I could see training for a 1/2 marathon, but I admit a full marathon scares me. ;0)

  14. I have some of that fabric!! It looks darling made up as a little dress. Good job on the marathon! That's a lot of work, all the training etc. I only run if something is chasing me :)

  15. I've just found your beautiful blog through photo on Pinterest -- I actually used a photo of a beautiful Apple Crate quilt of yours (credited and linked to you) in a post of mine about an important quilt project I've started called The Love Quilt -- I hope that's okay -- feel free to visit and or contact me if you'd prefer I not use the photo.

    Best,

    Pam

  17. LOVE the dress... I might have to make one. And congrats to your hubby, that is HUGE! If you're thinking about doing a marathon you might try a half marathon first. I've got one coming up and I have to admit they're a lot more fun than marathons, but still something to be proud of!
