250 count sheets!!



Boy O Boy my kids have keep me busy this week!!My dd and the little girl next door decided they didn't want to make dirt houses anymore, so they started putting dirt in each others hair.Mind you , my dd was under the watchful eye of my dh when this happen.So at 9:30pm Friday night I am washing dirt out of my dd hair.As you can see in the picture she was very sleepy after getting her hair washed.



Sewing projects!I had been working on these project off and on for two weeks.After reading Sheilaz Crochetz blog on sewing with sheets,I had to try it.The skirt in the picture below is made out of 250 count sheets.I bought a full size sheet set for 11.00$.I still didn't use all the fabric from the set.So I made my dd a skort skirt with some of the fabric and still have a lot left.Now when I see a white sale it can mean a totally different thing!!!The top I have on is butterick 4996 the fabric I used is a very lightweight cotton.I will be making this top again, I love it!The only thing you will have to wear a strapless bra with it.The skirt is simplicity 4236.





Well that's it for me!!


Hope SmileyCentral.comeveryone have a great day!!!

I never would've thought you'd used a sheet. My first thought was, "great fabric!" as I love geometrics. Looks great on you!

Wow I can see the sand and stuff in the basin as you are washing her hair. My daughter got tons of sand in her hair the other day I dreaded washing it out. She also falls asleep as I am braiding it, well on a good day she does!!!
