It's so hard to believe that my baby's, already, two years old! We celebrated with a two-year photo shoot at the mall; a trip, to Party City, to pick up a few paper goods for her big party, which is this coming Saturday; a homemade, macaroni and cheese dinner...
Moda Bake Shop's Little Girl's Patchwork Skirt recipe for the skirt (front, then back views below)...
this post.), from an extra fabric square.
Target tee above, were the interfacing, behind the applique, and her cowgirl boots.
here (I, always, seem to have lots leftover, when I use a purchased pattern. Why is that?), and the fabric squares and navy fabric came from BJ's grandmother. It'll be so fun to have this special memory of her.
I remember being so excited, that BJ had a grandmother, when he and I got married. My Grandma passed away, when I was only ten-years-old; and while her step-sister, my Auntie Myrt, filled her shoes, honorably, with all the necessary love and affection, she, too, passed away, just after BJ and I got engaged. I was in need of a grandmotherly figure in my life. BJ's grandmother never filled that role, while she was living. But that's no never mind, because this skirt won't serve as a memory of what could have been, but rather what she and I had in common... a love for sewing. I'm told she was quite the seamstress in her day.
Thanks so much for stopping by and reading! Oh! And happy November! Can you believe it?!
