Mothering, making, and generally blathering on

Those basic skirts I made for the girls…they each chose the border fabrics.


I made a fancy pocket for each. C’s has an appliqued cupcake, with pleated wrapper and corduroy frosting, plus a button cherry. Wish that part of it hadn’t come undone on the first wash!


(color is washed out from the light, it didn’t actually fade like that!)

M’s has embroidered and appliqued flowers, plus a lining that folds over to trim the edge.


Been a busy few weeks despite no swimming lessons, with lots of playdates to get reacquainted with school friends before school starts up, outings, school supply shopping, two company parties for G, and a cold that eventually made its way through the whole family. C and M have gotten their teacher assignments; the former starts this Wednesday and the latter next Wednesday. I will miss these little faces…


…although I am also looking forward to the house not turning into such a mess each week! (M post PB&J and chocolate chip cookie at the company picnic, C enjoying a shave ice at RiverFest.)
