KCW Days 1-3 - something to show, finally

This three-kids-of-which-two-are-toddlers-and-one-is-a-newborn thing is no joke.  It is a minor miracle that I finished anything at all, let alone that I got photos taken.

I actually finished sewing the skirts on Tuesday morning. I pulled out my box of elastic ... only to find that I was clean out of the 3/4" width I needed for these skirts.  Drat.  I knew of a fabric store about 25 minutes away.  You know I was determined when I grimly loaded the kids into the car Wednesday morning and made the trek. Success! Not only do they have elastic, but fabric, pretty lace and a lovely array of buttons. This store is by our church so I will make sure to do my notions shopping on Sundays.

Yesterday I also started sewing summer nightgowns for the girls. I hope I can finish them by the end of the week.


  1. The skirts look great! I like the fabric on both of them! And I am jealous you found a store with fabric and notions. We have soe stores but I haven't found a good fabric store yet. Or notions... i found a tiny one that sells buttons and some ribbons... ugh.

  2. I love those skirts!! Totally makes me want to make some. What great colors in that floral.


Thanks for stopping by!
