You may remember I bought this fabulous piece of fabric some time ago. Unfortunately it found itself a nice shelf and refused to budge until last night. Now it's a pretty cool dress for No.4 and she outside right now with it on, running through puddles and admiring the rainbow in the sky. I wonder if she'll come in when the rain starts? She's a bit wicked sometimes!
We can show you the new dress sideways too if you like. The stripy legs are quite neat with it. The more patterns the better when you're three. I'd love a pretty crochet edge on the hem of the dress but I wouldn't have a clue how to do that. We may have to settle for some cotton lace. I'll add that to the list.
I couldn't resist adding a doily to one of the flowers! I really do love them these days. Isn't it funny how things catch on? I had never enjoyed doilies before blogging. Come to think of it there are many things I hadn't even tried before my blogging days. Yes we may spend too long searching through the many blogs some days, but I know that I have certainly gained many new skills from reading them.
My little poppet picked out her own buttons. She has quite an opinion about things these days, but her favourite clothes are those that she has seen being made for her. You don't get to make special choices when you go out and buy a ready made garment do you? It's nice to pick out buttons, laces, fabrics and other cute bits and pieces when you are little, and big too.
Over the weekend our house started to become a home once again. Finally! I was completely over the mess and having piles of stuff everywhere on Friday. But now the two little girls are in their new rooms. And boy do they look fabulous. Hubby has done himself proud yet again. The finishing is perfect as usual. I just hope the little girls are careful for at least a couple of months.
So far I've managed to get hubby to hang one picture up on the perfect walls. I'll work on him next week for another wee hole. After all my little girl and tree wall hangings, garland, raggy heart, and other bits and pieces I've made for their new rooms, need a home too.
Today the littlest poppet and I have sorted out all the buttons into their correct jars, made a dress, rewashed all the soaking washing from the line, done a puzzle, had morning tea and are now about to have lunch. Then it's back to the Grannies for me. They are coming along splendidly. I am doing the last two rounds of the white and am managing to get about six done each day. I can see the light at the end of the tunnel now for sure! I can't believe I am actually going to have a crochet blanket that I've made. Just incredible.
Anyway I'll catch up with your blogs later on today. Thanks for going to the trouble of posting about your aprons again. I've enjoyed seeing a few that slipped me by. They are all so beautiful and lovingly made.
