Cape? I don't need no stinken cape!

Well...after the hard work on the cape, this is the outfit Olive wanted to wear to the party. Maybe I should have made the cape in pink? Never the less we had a blast. My dearest, bestest friend Natalie and I sat up making cupcakes, and tissue paper flowers until...... Her exact quote of my decorating skills was, "it looks like Bozo threw up in here." Well, Olive was impressed!

Welcome to my blog!!

Thanks for anyone there???? :) Not yet I'm sure but someday..
My name is Caroline, I own a "sweet, simple, handmade" line of children's clothing and accessoires named Sugar.

I love, love love, to sew and create. It's what I go to bed at night thinking about (ok, not always), and wake up to. I only started sewing about 5 years ago, but as a child I had the pleasure of being left to my own devices in my grandmothers scraps. I used to sit for hours constructing new outfits for my barbies, and crocheting enormously lone lines of yarn. Sad to say I never learned how to crochet. (I have to put that on my to do list).

I have the best memories of the little jumpers my grandmother used to make us every spring. I think we use to get 3 every year for summer. And..growing up mostly on a farm they were all we wore. You will actually find one of those jumpers (daisy) in my line. Fashioned very much like the one's my grandmother made. Same pattern only modified...a bit.

O.K. Off to work. I have to finish a cape for my god-daughters birthday this weekend. This has been such a fun project. I can't wait to see her face when she opens it.

Have a beautiful day everyone! Let's say a prayer for NO MORE SNOW! WHEW!
