...make a skirt. I have had a "helper" in the studio for the last couple of days. My Birthday Girl was feeling a little under the weather and didn't make the trip to Grandma's house with her sister. The trip was a gesture from my Mom in order to help me get caught up on some work. So... we have been getting some quality time together. She has been a very good sport and was even really helpful in packing up orders! But, none the less, I wasn't getting caught up on anything. Then the walking foot on my machine broke in the middle of trying to finish up a custom quilt that needs to be done for a soon departing college freshman! After a few curse words, I decided to throw in the towel and have some fun. After discovering her love of a beautiful corduroy fabric we worked together to make a VERY simple skirt.
I never knew how happy a simple elastic skirt could make a-now-eight-year-old.
Then the UPS guy dropped off a box with some pretty Orla Kiely soaps. Things are looking up and maybe I will get some work done tomorrow. In the meantime, I have a happy girl and clean hands!
