Great weekend and some sewing!

What a weekend! Took the kids to a indoors water park. They were off for a week for spring break.

My two boys and my niece! It was hard getting them stop to take pictures because they were having so much fun!

Hubby and dd having a good time!

Me having a cold drink

I haven't blog in a month and I was award a sisterhood award!Yeah I am suppose to give it to 10 other people and everyone I know already have one.So I will not be giving any away. I would like to thank Ms. Jackie for the award!!

Now to sewing!

Patterns: Jacket and top Butterick 5941 Misses Jacket,top,skirt and pants.

Fabric: mystery fabric for a 1$ a yard at Walmart for the skirt and jacket.


Conclusion: Very easy pattern no trouble at all.This pattern is out of print.I didn't add any button to the jacket just left it without. The top was fast and easy. I bought that fabric for the top from Jo-Ann's clearance rack a 1$ a yard.

Pattern: out of print also.Misses skirt with variations.

Simplicity 4787
I love this skirt because of the pleats on the back.This was also an easy sew.It didn't call for a lining, but I added one because the fabric is light weight and you can kind of see through it.

Well that's it for me! Happy crafting!

Nice suit and you're looking good. Glad you're back to blogging. I need to get swimsuit ready because my kids are going to want to hit the pool this summer and they are little so I can't sip on the sidelines.

Hi Gold .- This suit has caught my attention. The color divine, but I am amazed with the price of fabric .... you made a good buy, sure.
