I actually remembered to take a couple of pictures before I left to meet my friend Emily yesterday morning. Oh, I like this set! I wanted something her daughter could wear now and keep wearing as spring arrives. It might even make it into summer, with the addition of some buttons on the straps.

I still have a wee bit of both prints and may just have to make something for me from them. They’re just too pretty not to use!
It’s nice to just get to see her and hang out; she’s pretty crafty/artsy herself and I enjoy talking to her about it. My daughter and her son are the same age (born about a month apart) and I get a kick out of watching them interact. Three year olds socializing are a riot!

Only one more day with all three kids at home, so I’m forcing asking the boys to pack up all the Christmas stuff and put it back in the attic. They’re big, strong, young men — and I have sewing to do.

    So cute!! I adore that fabric. I’ve got a chunk of it that I’ve been too afraid to cut into but I’m feeling a bit inspired. I think the crown is what put me over the edge. LOVE the crown.
