Not a whole lot of anything happened here today. Unless you count the miles we drove around the city. Our oldest went to help out his grandmother "Mammie" then we drove the middle child south to the other grandparents house to visit "Nana and Papa". Claire and I were stuck together again in a good way. She is leaving for the lake on Friday. Seems everyone is leaving but me?
After finding this cute apron last week I was inspired to put this apron skirt idea into stitches. It is a very simple full white skirt made of Kona white fabric and lined with the same.
Instead of the normal...ouch this is too tight...waist band, I added this super comfortable knit waistband. This is my second time to use this type of waist band and I can tell you that I grab for these clothes first in my closet. Comfort and style all day long. After completing the skirt I sewed the apron right over the top of the waist band.
Every thing has to have a pocket. Comfort and utility is a must. Not completely finished though. After clipping off the waist band of the apron (it had stains on it) I plan on using the ties for an addition to a t-shirt for a matching top. Not too granimals though.
While dropping off my middle son to fish with Papa my mom and I got to chatting about the birds that Gayle had posted about last week. Bored of having this sweet chick around, my mom handed him off to me. Claire and I had to stop and pick up a few new nail colors. Bet you can't pick hers! Love all the neat nail add ons for girls. These are Turquoise and Tart.
Just a good old fashioned fruit salad. Love to do these cute things. I do hope to get some sewing done tomorrow. Poor kids are climbing the walls.
