Slow Saturday

Well, maybe not that slow, after half a dozen loads of laundry, a trip to the fabric store, then I sewed up a quickie skirt, worked on a quilt, walked the dog her couple of miles, hmmmm guess it wasn't slow after all!
About the skirt, I haven't sewn clothing in so long but I couldn't find one that I liked in my price range & I'm not sure I like the one I have made well enough to wear it, LOL.


I just want a nice flowy white summer skirt is that too much to ask? & under $200 or so please!! I'm afraid this one will require the addition of a lining slip- now after sewing the skirt it might end up at St Vinnies and then I'll be shopping again.........


JW stopped by for a couple of hours yesterday with the baby - of course I have the camera going & here are a couple of the results.

The baby is a delight........

Wear the skirt a couple of times first. Perhaps a half slip to wear under it? Do they still make those?

Gorgeous baby! Handsome guy! And great job on the skirt. :) A very dear friend of mine has a sister who is an exquisite quilter and really introduced me to the art of it. (Not that I would be able to do ANY of it.) I actually bought two 60-yr-old quilt tops and had a ladies church group but the batting and backings on for me. I LOVE them. You are amazinly talented to be able to do this!

I wanted to thank you so much for stopping by my blog and for your kind comments.

Blessings to you!!

It's hard to tell about those kind of skirts on hangers. Do give it a twirl or two before you pitch it! Remember a skirt is nothing without the right blouse (and slip) LOL. Lovely children you have (Jack and Matt)

Beautiful baby boy... or am I supposed to say handsome. I don't think at this point it matters much to him... but I will say handsome dad!

Oh my gosh! Not only do you quilt but you sew clothes too? I think I need to come and visit you..., learn a thing or two.

Dad looks tired but proud. Ah BABIES!
