I am still here!
I will be posting again, but in the mean time I have been enjoying and refocusing on my loved ones and our home. Sometimes blogging about our life here in the pink house takes away from the moment, undermining the whole process. I hope for blogging to be an extension of my love for being a housewife and mama not something that takes away from them. All about creating a balance.
Here is a quick post to share my latest circle skirt project, which has a Titanic theme. We are a bit geeky over the Titanic. We have travelled hundreds of miles to attend exhibitions, read countless books and for the 100th anniversary of the sinking we are preparing our outfits for my niece Solanah's Titanic tea event. My skirt is not a part of my outfit for the tea, rather I have been inspired by Ms. Frizzle of the Magic School Bus books. She is a teacher with amazing outfits that go with each unit being studied. You may recall I made a dragon themed skirt to accompany our Asia unit and Lunar New year celebration. Up next is a solar system skirt!
These are my favorite things to make ever! No pattern, very little sewing, felt (love felt!) embroidery-even crude stitches add to the character of the piece.
