Yesterday I went to buy the kids some summer shoes and came home with these ... Not exactly what I had in mind but as My little girl ( who is growing up too fast ) was so mature about making a good decision and not having hot feet I caved and bought her two. As it turns out I need not have, as it seems she will never take these off.
Today she discovered this...
I think she loves them even more now her smile ever increasing as she danced around in the shaft of sunlight sending sparking lights across the room.
My exciting news is that I finished the shirt ... Ta Da
Look at that handsome little Model. I got their hair cut yesterday too and it has made each of them look at least a year older I think. The shirt could have done with being a little longer but I am quite happy with it. I modified quite a bit from the pattern detail not including all of the top stitching only adding one pocket and no flap on it.
I learned a lot about my sewing Machine in sewing this shirt and I feel really good about it too.
Right now I have home made pizzas in the oven and the family are in another room wrapping gifts. Its my Birthday this weekend and as one of my sisters most inconsiderately chose this weekend to get married we are having a birthday celebration tonight.
I'll post pics of the kids in wedding guest attire sometime over the weekend. I'm proud I made something for each of them to wear.
Have a great weekend whatever it entails!
