Oh, the weekend whizzed by and so did our first week of summer vacation!
My favorite daughter got a new top.
She clammours for new clothes all the time and I really should pick up the pace a bit. She can really think me a bore that I am so slow about it.
I had thought it would leave the top just "plain" with no added embellishment, she however, thought a bit of fancying up was called for. So I made a wee, little ragged edged rose. It turned out that she was right, this was just what the top needed. I like the subtlety of it.
Then it needed a tag inside, this she also insists upon. Funny, the store tags I am asked to cut off, they irritate her sensitive skin. However, she would like her handmade garments to have tags to help to show where the back and front are. It is fun to make them actually.
Whenever I take photos with her we end up in stiches. Sometimes the camera shakes as much as she does while we giggle together.
Before I run off to enjoy the rest of what has been an incredibly lovely sunny weekend I have to tell you about how Jacquie shows off how she has done up some wonderful flowers with pretty leaves and shows some great ways to use them. She made them using my Cute as a Button Flower Tutorial.
