Just a little something for your viewing pleasure..taken on a short drive on the 8th of this month.

I am wanting to start something in the sewing dept. and have a couple things in mind. Don't know how much I will get done though. Tomorrow we are heading to Tuscola to the outlet mall...us girls that is. If nothing happens. We were going to go Monday but it was too rainy and damp and cold...it is an outdoor mall we are going to.

I don't know if any of us are really going for anything particular...just a time to get out and do something together. Before Sarah goes back to work and while Rachel is on vacation. There is a Carter's store over there, so I bet we all want to go to it. Lorelei is going to be the best dressed kid in town....I keep thinking about making her an outfit.

I always had trouble choosing the correct size for the kids when they were so tiny. It was more fun when they were around 4 or 5. I don't know if either one of them remember things I made them or not but they each had favorite things they wore. I think with my oldest it was a pair of red plaid pajamas...with the younger, it was not so much one thing as this one pattern. A skirt pattern that had circle skirt...kind of. A lot like this one...if not the same one.

We won't say much about the poodle skirt she wanted...and she wanted it out of a specific material. Polkadots--black and white. I hunted and hunted till I found material acceptable to her, and made it...and she hated it once it was made. I honestly don't know if she wore it 2 times even. The other little skirts...I forget how many I made from the same pattern...she wore them all the time. I could honestly say I got my money's worth out of it.

So keep your fingers crossed that I settle on something to make...I feel the need to be creative!

Nice hawk shot! He really sat there and posed for you. Enjoy your shopping! Sewing for little girls is fun. I never sewed much for my son...pjs....but for Emiy I made simple dresses and little play clothes for summer....and doll covers and clothes. I'm getting ready to start on the 4 Christmas stockings I'm suppose to do for my sister's family.

I remember sewing a circle skirt in "Home Ec" class in the late fifties. All the girls in class had to make one, regardless of the fact that the style only looked good on about three girls in the class. We also learned to make butterscotch pudding, and embroidered cross-stich designs on linen tea towels. I sincerely hope that girls these days also learn how to make a household budget, balance a checking account and invest!!!

I remember sewing and knitting for my daughters too. Now I hardly ever sew. Not enough time to do everything I want to do!

Hi Rose, Those are great pictures of the hawk... I'm sure you'll find something creative to do... Maybe when you all go to the mall, you'll find something there!!!!!

Are you going to keep the baby when her Mama goes back to work????
