a little peek

Addie's Skirt

I have the little skirts finished except for the elastic in the waistbands. I need their cute mom to get me their tummy measurements.

Ella's Skirt Would you believe she only has a yardstick or ruler, no measuring tape! She got the skirt length for me but it was a bit difficult to measure around their waists! I really need to get that girl a measuring tape ...


In the meantime, I've been thinking about what to do on their little t-shirts. I love Heather Bailey 's bird

that was featured in Mary Englebreit's Home Companion, my all time favorite magazine.I used this pattern. Party Chicks™
So this is the plan.....

I love doing these little projects, so I've had to pace myself. Today I'm supposed to be cleaning, so I'll go scour a bathroom and reward myself with time in the sewing room. I have also been told by a certain someone that I have to read at least 3 chapters in Twilight...or else. AND it's General Conference weekend which I absolutely LOVE. We're recording it. The things we can do now-a-days! Tomorrow after the afternoon session we're having "Partridge" tacos at my parents. My mom wants to go around the table and let everyone tell their favorite talk and why. I thought that was such a great idea, thanks Mom!

Boy is my mom lucky I don't have any little girls yet. Otherwise I would be quite jealous...wait, let me re-think that. Even though I don't have girls to put that way cute outfit on I am still JEALOUS! Next on my list of things to purchase--a sewing machine. What a cute idea! You're so crafty! If you were closer I would reccommend you for an Enrichment Night. You are sooo talented!!

Heather ~ I'd be so honored! I just ordered fabric from your Pop Garden Lime Paisley Collection to make the Edith Skirts featured in ME for my little granddaughters for Christmas. Now I'm addicted to your fabrics!
