Bloggers are supposed to you know, blog

It seems like I always have an excuse these days. I know, it gets old, even to me. We've been fighting a bug the last week or so and Jeff even took a couple of days off of work. I'm the last one to catch it and between my insane gag reflex and the amounts of phlegm...I'm staying pretty low.

The school year is coming to a close for Darsie next week. I'm sad about it but I'm also looking forward to a big break. We will still have her weekly physical therapy but there won't be school four times a week, Elise's therapist is having surgery and will be out for six weeks after which Elise will probably be discharged, and Elise's EI playgroup won't be meeting twice a week. Our summer schedule is looking pretty barren, actually. I think it will be great. We have a little mini blow-up trampoline and a ball house that I'm going to have Jeff put up in the yard and I think we'll spend as much time outside as humanly possible this summer. I'm going to have to figure a way to move my sewing production out of doors as well.

Oh, and I need some input! We're headed to a wedding in late June and I need some dress advice. Well, I've pretty much decided I'm going to make a sundress but I need opinions on fabric. This is my first choice so far. Too busy? You can tell me the truth, I promise. I'll throw a cardigan of some nature over the top.


On second thought...I somehow (like forgot I purchased one lot and had asked for a custom listing from another seller) ended up with four yards of this fabric. It would need a lining but what do you think? Too white? How about with a green cardigan or maybe make it a skirt with a green top?

hrm... what's the scale on the print? My gut is to say it is just fine, especially with a solid and maybe a sash to break it up.

also, can you believe our girls are almost FIVE? (I'm back to reading... I lost track of you in an RSS reader changeover!)

I love the first one!

I adore that second print! It would look so cute with a green sweater with it.

OMIGOSH--fashion!!!!Love it!!! Either is fine I think, With the first I would would wear a pink or turquoise sweater to pull out those colors and with the second i would definitely go with a green sweater.

Can't wait to see which way you go!

I like the first one best.

They are both really cute! I'd use the top one with a sweater over it (or something solid) or the bottom one as a sundress with a green belt or something similar. I'm sure it will be great no matter what you make. Don't forget to show us the outcome.

ok, if you want a truth: yes, too busy. Make skirts and children's dressed with them but please do not wear them as dresses to a wedding!
