This isn't the best picture; but it's a double ruffle skirt I made for Natie this afternoon using this tutorial.
My daughter Julie came over to sew with me. She had four pieces of fabric, and we were each going to make two skirts for Natie. That way we'd be done in record time. You think? I ended up sewing while she made matching hair bows and necklaces. It was just easier to do the sewing while she puttered and entertained with her funny stories.
I don't normally drink coffee in the afternoon, but I picked up a bottle of this earlier for us to try. Love it!
Our winter has been unusually mild, and the sap is already running in the trees. Julie's husband Travis already has enough sap to boil and make maple syrup. So our little model for these skirts was spending time in the sugar house with her dad.
