Happy Resurrection Day!

When I started making the girls' Spring outfits two weeks ago, I predicted that I would be sewing until the midnight hour. Not true! I was done by noon on Saturday!

I'm pleased with the results, but getting that"perfect shot" in the 5 minutes before we dash off to church is always tough!

I didn't make the boys' shirts - Thank You to Children's Place! Emelie suggested for next year that we go with a Hawaiian theme complete with shirts for the boys. That could be so much fun!


  1. Loving those dresses and skirts! Very cute!!!

  2. And again, I am in awe of your skills! I absolutely ADORE the little girls dresses- wish I knew how to use my sewing machine so that I could make some for my girls. It was just so wonderful to catch up with you Saturday!

  3. The outfits are beautiful! Yes, that shot before anyone getting dirty and before you are late for church is a tough one.
