A beautiful thing




So I was preparing to sew up some samples for the girls sewing club, and Miss H got to work on her lemonade on the lawn skirt. Months and Months ago she found this very very loud lemon print at the Joann's and said, "Ohh Mom, this would just be perfect for lemonade on the lawn!" How can you argue with a five year old who wants to sew her own skirt to wear while she pours lemonade for the congregation after services? I did find myself incapable of argument and purchased enough for two, one for demonstration purposes and one for her to sew. I cannot even tell you how my eyes bulged when she selected JUMBO bright yellow rick rack, but you can't argue with her finished product. Paired with a $5 perfect t-shirt from Target it screams summertime, and lemonade on the lawn. And how cute does Lil bit look flashing her "Ponge Bob panties?" I know she's such a cutie!!

Miss H's only comment on sewing such an adorable skirt, "Mom, next time do you think we could start earlier? I'm so tired!!" We had to wait until all the other children were sleeping to be able to sit down and work in the office (still missing my playroom!!) She finished at 9:30, not bad for an hour and a half.

This summer is going to be GREAT!!
