Miss Dorito would like to wish everyone a very safe and happy 4th of July.  She is rockin’ her new patriotic dress.  She has a little bit of room, so she can grow into it.  And no, I did not make it.  I am trying desperately to maintain some dignity by not spending all my time drafting patterns for chihuahua clothing.

This little darling is sucking up a lot of my time, as any baby will do.  She is a bundle of energy, funny and sweet.  At 3 months, she weighed in at one ounce under two pounds.

Good news from the sewing room – I have new LED lighting. Talk about opening up a world of opportunity!  Now I can actually work after sunset.

Remember the eye mask I made for our European trip?  On our return flight from Shannon to JFK I sat next to two energetic young Irish women.  They were on their way to San Diego to work for the summer.  It was their first time out of Ireland, the first  plane ride for one of them.  Louise and Clodagh made the most of their flight time, partaking of the free (on international flights) beverages and flirting with the other passengers.  When the flight attendants started passing out eye masks for those who wanted to sleep, I knew mine had ascended to a higher purpose.  I hope Clodagh and Louise have fun showing off their new fashion accessory.
