A large family, homeschooling, adoption, special needs, whatever strikes my fancy, sort of blog.

Valentine and Other Sewing
I've been spending less time online and more time in the sewing room lately.
This is the crazy shape of the pattern piece for the twirly skirt I made for Hannah.
And here's the completed skirt. This would be a great project for a stack of coordinating fat quarters, because you can't cut the fabric folded; all the pieces need to go the same direction.
This is the skirt I made for Katie. I bought 2 yards of each print, and after both skirts, I still have roughly 25" of each left over.
Hannah and Katie modeling the skirts with new pink tops from Kohl's. Hannah's is a little big, I may have to pop it open and cinch up the waist elastic a bit.
This quilt moved from our old house as blocks 4 years ago. I came across it recently and turned it into one piece, but had to wait until just this week to pick up some binding for it. (The binding is actually blue, it looks darker in the photos.) I used gold minkee for the back.
I don't really know what to do with it. The only person I know with a new baby already has plenty of blankets. I may donate it to Project Linus.

Spring flowers and bunnies. Do these go together? I have no confidence in print matching. I used to be adventurous in putting things together, but way back when Annaliese wore a little girl's size 8, I made her a dress from 2 prints, and someone commented that it looked "clownish." Ever since, I've been second guessing myself. I may make a different top to go with these pants and just put white leggings under the dress.
My next couple of projects are crafty things, rather than sewing, but I'm excited to share those with you, too.
