Spring is here and it is wonderful! No way to express it really, the immense joy of it! I try here to capture some of its beauty.
Blossoms are turning up here and there!
The surge of energy of the spring air must have encouraged me to tackle my first buttonhole. I found myself making this dress for Lilly with three buttons and that meant I had to get over my fear of learning how to do the button holes. I got out a sewing book, my sewing machine instructions, and the funny button hole foot. I used a scrap and made a few practice ones. There were a few setbacks at the beginning but I kept at it and before long I dared to do the real thing on her dress.
Here she is wearing it. The fit of the dress isn't the best, but that isn't due to my sewing skills.
She was patient and played happily with her bunnies while I took photos. As you might have noticed, they are smooching.
Outdoors we are now on our way to nursery school.
Early morning walks are always a joy, full of song, skipping and discoveries.
