Spring Fever

It's cold, cloudy and threatening rain today, but I think I have Spring fever! I just put Ellie down for a nap and Maggie and I are going outside to cut daffodils for a vase. We have spent most of the day cleaning, purging and organizing. I'm trying to finish my work so that I can work on an Easter shirt for Ellie. Maggie and Callie have one like this:

I used the tutorial here (this is now one of my favorite blogs) but stitched around the edges with embroidery thread and stitched on a little button for the tail.

I may fix Maggie a "5" shirt and Ellie a "2" shirt to wear at their birthday celebrations. We'll see!

Now back to working in my kitchen cabinets.

Happy Tuesday!

very cute shirt! I wish I knew how to sew real people clothes!! Grandma taught me how to make barbie doll clothes when I was little but my seams were terrible:)) Maybe someday I will have to learn, I think I would really enjoy it!

I had that purging and organizing fever on Saturday. Then, my mom brings Andrew home and brings me "junk" (stuff that will just sit around) from her house "because Andrew wanted it." That caused an would think the poor child is severely deprived of stuff.
