What I'm working on...

Next Sunday is Princess' birthday.  She will be six years old.  This year is requiring a little more creativity to make the money go farther, but I am having fun.  My most exciting deal of the weekend is all about sewing.  I am making a dress for Princess' birthday.  I was able to get everything in the picture for $20.87.  That is over 7 yards of fabric a zipper and 4 spools of ribbon.  Yay!!  I went to JoAnn's armed with coupons and my teacher's rewards card.  JoAnn's accepts competitor's coupons, so I printed a 40% off Micheal's coupons to go along with my 40% off JoAnn store coupon and my 15% off teacher rewards card.  The lady in front of me was checking out when she found out that her 50% off coupon was only good on fabric.  She wasn't getting any fabric, so very kindly and cheerfully turned around and handed it to me.  Talk about a blessing.  All of this would have cost more over $40.  Isn't it fun when we receive these little blessings?!
 This next picture is something else I am working on.  Can you guess what it is?  I will have more pics of the finished items next week.
