Phew, this week is like party central.
I have to first give a shout-out to my little girl, Laikyn. Today is her 4th birthday. Happy Birthday sweet girl!
We had her ‘friends’ birthday party on Sunday afternoon and mama is still recovering. Four year olds have a ridiculous amount of energy.
And it didn’t help that I stayed up until 3am sewing her birthday outfit when I had to wake up at 7am. Word to the wise: Do not decide that the tee needs a skirt at 1am.
I managed to get it finished and she approved, which is fortunate because I probably would have cried if she didn’t want to wear it.
I found the skirt pattern on Etsy, it’s called the Marigold Skirt by DittyPop. Easy to put together and I love how you can really mix it up and make it funky.
Since her actual birthday is today we indulged in some leftover cake. She has a ballet recital on Saturday and our extended family will be coming. They weren’t able to make it on Sunday, so we’re having another little get together to give them a chance to celebrate with her. You best believe she is loving all this fuss!
Speaking of parties, I really enjoyed reading through the comments that were left yesterday at the blog party over at Ellison Lane. Thank you Jennifer for having me and to each of you who came over here as a result!
The best part, to me, about blogging is connecting with others. I love finding new blogs and learning about each of you and being encouraged by such a generous and inspiring community!
On a sewing note, I got a few more blocks in the mail today for the Dresden quilt. I’ve got to hurry up and bust out the last seven I have to do.
I planned it to be 4 wide and 6 long, but I’m beginning to wonder if I should add another row to the width. I guess it will depend on whether I sash the blocks or not. Opinions? Sashing or no sashing?
Hope your week is off to a great start!
