Edith Twirl Skirts

I'm almost finished with the skirts for Ella and Addie. I need to get their waist measurements and they'll be good to go . I must say, I love PDF patterns! Jona does an amazing job. It's well written with great photos and it is suitable for beginners. I had so much fun. Now I really want to get this pattern . Isn't it adorable!
Working with Heather Bailey's fabric is such a treat!
I still have to play my little game.

....I think I found a new hobby! (just what I need)

I heart embroidery.... it is really fun.

I'm going to get the girls some little tank tops and try these sleeves.
