We are excited to announce that we have another daughter waiting for us in China!  She turned 4 in April and we are hoping to travel to meet her and bring her home in the fall or early winter (sooner would be better, but try telling that to the officials!).

Please feel free to visit our main family blog to meet all of us - at http://mcnewfamily.blogspot.com/.

How Close Are We?

Thursday, December 17, 2009


Hello, everyone, this is MissE - the eldest daughter. Mom emailed me and told me that she's been getting requests from this site - so I guess we'd better tell you the news! Mom and Iboy are currently in China, and are now with our dear little ZabiChu. As such mom can't really sew right now - and she'll probably not be able to for a while. When she gets home, I may be able to crank out an order or two under her tutelage, but try not to get your hopes up - the results may not be up to par and therefore would not be sent out. However, winter quarter is starting soon, so after that starts I probably won't be even be able to that much, and mom will be busy with the latest addition to our family. Sorry everyone!

God bless.

Extend the Life of your Favorite Dresses!

Chick-a-Dee LOVED this sundress last summer.  Unfortunately, it is rather short this year!  It fits fine everywhere else - just too short!  I tried the bloomers under it and added a T-shirt and had an instant success!

The bloomers are a light-weight, cool cotton; trimmed with lace.  

I have them in sizes up to 6 for $10 each plus shipping.

Sun Dress with Bloomers

I am offering two darlin' little sun dresses and bloomers in a little different way than I usually do.  Instead of taking orders, I have posted two "ready to go", lovingly handcrafted outfits this time.  $35 plus shipping.  Again, my awesome, talented Mom is donating her time to make them - thanks a kazillion, Mom!

These are both a size 2.  I only put one of them on Chick-a-Dee to model it - they are both brand new dresses.

The bottom one buttons on each shoulder with a yellow button, has yellow rick rack trim around the pockets, on the bloomers and between the yellow and blue fabric on the dress.  The bodice is lined with the contrast yellow fabric.  The top one is similar, but just slips on over the head.

The Raffle Drawing

Congratulations, Mari!  You are the winner of the raffle!

I hope that you will all forgive me, I didn't think that we were going to make a movie of the drawing - you get to see me in all my unprepared glory!  Yikes - you never realize how goofy you look until you watch yourself on screen, heh?

New Item!

I am pleased to offer you custom crafted sheets to fit the toddler beds!

At the request of a friend, who was always complaining about taking a regular sheet and folding it small to fit the toddler beds or washing the blankets all the time because there was no top sheet for the toddler bed, I can now offer you the perfect sized top sheet to use on your sweeties bed!

By the way, my blankets are the perfect size to fit those toddler beds!

The sheets are priced at $15 each, or if you purchase one or more with the order of a blanket, I can coordinate them with your selected blanket and they are $10 each.

A Special Thanks

Do you like the new look of ChuHao's blog?  Well, it is obviously not any skill of mine that caused it to look so sweet and fresh!  All the thanks goes to Daleea at http://justonechildatatime.blogspot.com/ !!!!  She graciously offered to "do me up" and I can't thank her enough for her skills and time involved!  Please take a moment to browse her blog - she is a very special and talented woman!  Thank you, Daleea!

I am pleased to now offer a coordinating jacket for purchase!  Made from fleece and trimmed in the same fabric as the skirts and pants.  This is priced at $25 plus shipping.  As with all of my offerings to you, I am asking for a financial donation of love above the price of the item to help bring ChuHao home.

Skirts and Pants Fabric Choices

We have skirts, pants and bloomers! My Mom has graciously (and excitedly, I think!) agreed to help me out in my fundraising by sewing some ADORABLE tiered, twirly skirts and pants with your choice of ruffles or a shaped cuff! All of these are available up to a size 6. My COST is $15 plus shipping for each skirt or pants. My cost for the bloomers is $10 plus shipping. I am asking for a donation of love in addition to my cost to be directly applied to help bring our daughter home from China! For the best possible fit, please send me your sweetie's waist measurement and the desired finished length. dlmcnew@wwestsky.net

They are lovingly crafted for you with a soft flannel on one side and a coordinating ultra-soft minky on the other, or a knit/flannel combination. They are on average 45" x 60", although due to fabric irregularities, the actual measurement may vary slightly from blanket to blanket.
