A bit of sewing

I can't believe how much has happened in May.  And we still have almost a week to go!  I have lots of pictures to post of various happenings. First off, last year (or the year before that) my sister sent me some cute fabric---thanks Lena!  I finally got around to making the girls skirts out of it.  I was going to do two pink skirts, but realized I didn't have enough fabric.  Thankfully I had picked up some orange fabric for free and it worked great.  I actually like the orange better than the pink!  There is enough floral fabric left to make a skirt for myself--and orange fabric too.  I might just make myself one!  Though I need to figure out a cute top to go with it...

So I am not stylish in the least.  I try to look decent, but I am definitely not up with the latest trends.  I was pretty proud of myself when I saw these cardigans and thought they would be perfect with the floral pattern.  And for my eyes, I was right! I LOVE how they look together!

As you can tell, Shanna was not excited for the picture.  And she does not like the cardigan either.  Oh well.

A little pig snorting noise from me got a slight smile from Shanna.  I was happy with how the skirts turned out, along with the pairing of the cardigan!

I wasn't so sure I should have purchased this one.  But Lee said that even to have an extra tire is worth spending $5.  Little tires brand new at a store like this are over $10 (probably closer to $20). We still need to take the training wheels off this one. I was really happy with the bike find!!!

Plus if you ever have friends over I always find it helpful to have extra bikes.
