This dress is the result of participating in my first ever sew along.  Lucky Lucille and Tasha hosted Fall for Cotton.  I knew just what I wanted to sew.  I have had this Fall cotton for ages!  Every year when Fall rolled around I'd say, "I'm going to use that gorgeous fabric THIS year!"  Well this was just the kick in the pants I needed to finally get to it.

I gave Hubby a big Thank You hug and kiss after this photo shoot.  As we were pulling into our drive I said how I liked the fluffy weeds grasses for my photos.  Hubby said he liked the gnarled old tree.  I said, "You're not going to be able to get that in there!"  He said, "I take that challenge!"

He succeeded!!!  These may be my favorite blog photos yet.
