so long summer...

i know we have a while before summer is officially over, but i feel the "end of summer blues" creeping in. the official 'back-to-school', i.e. back to work, letter arrived in the mail yesterday and i realize my free time is coming to an end. we have had a wonderful summer. so many adventures and good times. as much as i'll miss my time off with the family, i'm looking forward to fall. my favorite season and getting back into my productive groove.

Day 2::KCWC::Another skirt...

Day 2::KCWC

i know, boring! i wish i could say i was lazy. unfortunately working and living don't leave me with a lot of free time for hobbies right now! even though i'd rather do something more involved, i like the instant gratification i get from whipping one of these up. and i like this little skirt, it's practical and cute. i sized this one for zoe although, she's so skinny i think it may be a bit loose on her right now.

Day 2::KCWC

as plain jane as it is, i see this skirt getting a lot of use. the neutral colors in the fabric provide a nice base for any season.

Day 1::Kids Clothes Week::Baby Skirt

i did it. i completed day one of the kids clothes week challenge! and this is what i made. a teeny-tiny baby skirt. i followed the "rules" this time and only decided that i would work for an hour. if i finished something in that hour great. if not, oh well, i tried!

baby skirt

in any case, i finished this simple skirt using a tutorial from made it took me a whole hour to complete, which shows how long it's been since i've sat down at my machine. most of the time was spent searching for a safety-pin in order to thread the elastic through the waist. it is 10:42pm therefore i have no cute baby photos. but will hopefully dress my little gemma in this when the sun is shining so you can see just how adorable it is.

check out the flickr group!! so many awesome, talented ladies sewing out there!

away we go



flying her first kite with dad

a girl and her dog

sometimes the days go exactly as planned. most often they don't. but my favorite days are totally unplanned. wind, sun, sand and a kite made this one of those perfectly unplanned days...
