My afternoon project

Well, I had nothing to do yesterday afternoon, so I sewed together some scraps. Okay, I ignored the things that needed to be done, and played with scraps none the less. In thirty minutes, I had this little bow tie made up. And look at the smile it invoked! He can't wait for Sunday to get here, so he can wear it to church.

I just loved the little white polka dot fabric. And I think he does to. With a velcro closure, it will be quick and easy to put on during the busy, sometimes rushing Sunday mornings. It's a win all the way around! Wouldn't your little boy look adorable in one of these?

Friday Finishes

Whew! I've finished two skirts, yep, two, and have two more nearly finished! Here is my baby girl modeling one of the skirts. This one is going to a little girl in our church, but there will be one going into my upcoming shop to sell to the general public. Gotta love the hot pinks, lime greens, and bright oranges of this skirt! It's something else!

And this is skirt number two. It is going to a cute little girl in SC, whose Mother is so very sweet. I adore her, even if she is a Texas Longhorn fan! I love the little owls on the skirt. This skirt will be so cute all summer, as well as the fall! Just throw some tights on with it, and you'll get a whole other season out of it!!

Where does she get it?

So I was amazed at my oldest daughter the other day. She decided to do housework without any prompting. I thought I would get a quick picture of it just in case it isn't a common occurrence. But then again, since we have been both been working to keep each other accountable in being homemakers, this should become the norm. Now see how cute she is vacuuming?
I mean really, who does she think she is? June Cleaver? All she needs is some pearls and heels. Trust me, she is NOT personifying me!
I think the only thing I'm channeling is Rosanne Barr. That is so not good. Guess I need to take lessons from Jeffie Jean! Amazingly enough, 10 year old little girls can teach us stuff too!
