Today I felt like I was losing traction. I managed to finish drafting yesterday, and even managed to cut out all the fabric for the sundress. I was all set to start in on it - but then I didn't have the right matching thread color. Doh! So I set that aside, and planned to start the next morning on Dana's adorable Market Skirt that I had cut out for Lily earlier.
But it was not to be - I have a sick little girl! Any mamas reading this know that her blank stare and pale skin but rosy cheeks is a sign of a sick little one. This is how we spent much of the day. "I want cuddles!" And if you know my little girl - that phase is rarely (nearly never) uttered. She is not a cuddler - she has too many things to do. So a big sewing day was not to be. But I'll take the cuddles instead! I did manage to get a tiny bit of sewing done during her naptime, and maybe I can get a little more done after the kiddos bedtime. Hopefully Lily will feel a little better tomorrow.
Oh! On a handmade note - the top Lily is currently wearing I made for her when she was 6 months old (as a dress). And yep - she's still wearing it at two years old (although now it's a shirt) My little ones seem to stretch but they don't get very much wider as they get older!
Also - Future Lily - I am sorry for posting a photo of you so miserable looking. But now I have photographic evidence that I did indeed get a few cuddles out of you!
