I sewed!

After a long hiatus, I finally put my little sewing machine to work. I made this cute little skirt!
Skirts are a fun alternative to shorts in the summer, and believe me, it's HOT here! Please disregard the mess of toys strewn about our living room :). It's unbelievably hard to get a toddler to hold still and pose for a photo. This was the best I could do.
And here's my little girl. She's growing up so fast! It must almost be time to have another one.

OH my goodness! I can't believe how much she has grown!! And such a beauty like her parents. The skirt is adorable too, love the fabric choice.

That's such a cute skirt. Lucy isn't too bad either! I actually just did a post about your music, today.I hope you have a chance to check it out! http://missrschultz.blogspot.com/2011/07/life-in-trust.html

That skirt is so fun and adorable, JJ! You are very talented. I love the colored polka-dot band. Will you be making baby Nora clothes as well?

I cannot believe how much Lucy has grown up. She's such a little lady now! She looks like you! (Although I'm not the greatest at comparing faces so for all I know she's actually a spitting image of Dave!) I hope you think it's about time to have another one because you're kind of on your way to that end and can't go back! :)

Wow, very cute!

Beautiful!! I love your color combos. Even more, I love how you are willing to show what real life is like. Don't we all have toys strewn about the floor (when we have children this age)?

Love this skirt and she is such a cutie! I have a headband and pinafore (sort of like a dress you wear over pants) made from that floral and my daughter has one made from the same dot print in another color.

GREAT SKIRT!! I bought several yards of fabric a few months ago meaning to make a couple skirts and it still sits in a bag. Maybe I will have to break my sewing machine out!

The skirt and Lucy are both completely adorable! :)

Absolutely adorable! It's seeing things like this that make me wish, if only a little that we have a little girl. ;) Good job JJ!

Oh my gosh! She's so adorable!

My heart stopped when I saw this picture of Lucy. Last time I saw her she was squeezing her hand made doll by mommy. With the 'I love Lucy' heart, which was the perfect touch. She really has grown up too fast. It's difficult to believe.
