I’m a sucker for seer-sucker.
Yep, Simplicity 7229 again. And yes, I had the guts to use some of my favorite fabric that I have held on to for a few years. I love it and I do love this skirt. My 8 year old actually complimented me on my newest skirt which is quite a thing- she doesn’t notice a whole lot when it comes to clothes (that’s why I can easily dress and shop for her without input).
Hurray for skirts- I am on to making another with some applique and then I think I will retire the pattern until Fall…don’t you think I should?
2 happy girls.
Me, age 3 or 4 in Connecticut visiting my Nana.
Penelope, age 3 at the park and happy as can be…
2 very similar personalities…the good and bad.
It’s scary, really.
I was really excited to make this shirt (above). I had seen similar styles in stores and remembered that the Simplicity 4589 pattern had a version…I thought finding the two fabrics would make a shirt that really “screamed me”. Well, the fabrics do- but geesh, the ruffles just are not for me.
I suppose my son helped confirm my mind when he just looked at me with a smirk while photographing the 1st shirt…In the photo, it doesn’t look as obnoxious. In fact I even considered this shirt as a pajama top, but I honestly don’t think I could rest with this thing on…seriously.
Although I was disappointed I had to get over it and continue my quest. I like the 2nd shirt much better and hope to make a few more. When it’s hot I can wear the shirt as a tank top, which I probably won’t, but maybe…
It seems that as the weather gets nicer, the weekends are filling up with lots of family and social time. Not that this is a problem, but as I write on Sunday night, I feel wiped and need another weekend…starting tomorrow!
Anyway, after a nearly 2 week absence- I don’t have a lot to share, but you can be sure I have a few sewing projects started, seeds that are sprouting in my humble garden, lots of photos from park excursions and an eagerness for summer to begin!
Above is a table topper I made for my mom. It was just the project I needed as I sat and watched kids fly by on their bikes and bubbles popping on my legs (thanks Penny!). I really liked how it turned out, but like any project I wished I had a bit more time…
I love this photo. My Ellie with my darling niece Tizzy…the kind of photo I know will be looked at in years to come and we will all just shake our heads muttering “Where did the time go?!”.
Again, another photo that I love…
Oh- and just had to throw in this shot! My brother-in-law makes the best chocolate cream pie and it is sad to say, but I just gobbled up that piece way too fast .
Happy Monday. 2 more weeks left of school- hurray.
