more lazy day skirts

well if one gets a skirt the other cannot be left out. we went and found this fabric to use for spirit day at school. green and gold. need to finish the green shirt that i want to applique a tree onto.

today was our 4 month checkup for b today. she did so well. she cried for a few minutes then she was good to go. very healthy and the doctor said she was perfect. m was picked up from school by uncle t and he treated her to king burger as she calls it. i could not get back from the dr in time to pick her up so he helped me out. nice to have brothers in town.

lazy day skirt sew along

fall has come to town. the days are chilly and our walks to school are brisk. i whipped up these two skirts last night for the girls to have on these cooler days. the corduroy is a burnt orange color and the girls love them.

you can see others playing along at day to day.

time to begin {again}

many firsts are coming about this month.

• my first week back to work after the birth of baby girl #3
• my little brother's daughter was born
• baby girl #1 start kindergarten next monday (where has the time gone)
• baby girl #2 is starting to put her words together

it has been a busy month for me. i have been sewing alot this last month it seems. at least when i can get a few moments to myself. i am currently working on some nice school clothes for my little girl. she has picked out a few patterns and i have picked out a few. i think they are coming together quite nicely. need to get some more done though. only a few days left until she starts. i am also making a few things for other people and that has been fun to do. a little change in what i have been doing.

i was in the kitchen today when i heard my girls playing. then my second daughter said, "my chair". she has always just said MINE but now it is my chair. stringing her words together now. it wasn't a big thing but at the same time a huge thing to me. it will be fun to see what is to come.

i have been working on ideas for christmas gifts already. hard to believe but i have. i even started gathering and putting things together. i am actually excited for them. not sure who will get what but it is going to be fun no matter what.
