Sewing Part 2

This is one of the great things about being with my children.  They get to learn and then practice new things.

After I completed the poncho-top for PrettyGirl, she wanted to make one for your doll.  She's made an actual poncho so that it can easily fit onto the doll.  She'll decide after a few days if she'll add sides like

I so enjoy creating and making things.  With all the things we do, I often don't get to do all the things I enjoy.  Enter Pinterest--and any time I would have, I've spent looking at all the options.  I'm sure there are some of you who understand what I'm talking about. LOL.

Well, yesterday while going through my stash of fabric I came across a piece I had totally forgotten about.  Just enough to make a cute little poncho-style top for my eldest.  No real pattern this time, just measure it up against her and went for it.

Not perfect, but not bad either.

I'm feeling pretty good.

Thankful Thursday

There are always reasons to be thankful, even in the most trying and difficult times.
I'm learning this these days.

Here's our list:
Growing food in our garden
Time to enjoy a story together
A cool breeze on a sunny day
Friends that joined us for some water play
Birds singing and nesting in our trees

What are you thankful for today?

Looking forward to our continued adventures near and far.
Hope each of you and your families are well and enjoying life in your part of the world.
I'm looking forward to connecting with you again here.
Be well.
