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 girls that is. If nothing happens. We were going to go Monday but it was too rainy and damp and 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!
