The Shirt

I’ve been imagining this shirt for some time now, and finally got around to creating it. It’s kinda big and blousey (my husband thinks maternity – what do you think?) but I do need the extra fabric to disguise all my post-baby pounds. It’s a soft and comfy cotton and it stretches in all the right places. The long tunic length is great for covering the unsightly rear side. I’ll be making more for sure!

Bath Time!

Doesn’t bath time make for the best-ever photo ops? Girls are contained and can’t run of the camera.

And you get to see soft little body parts which are generally kept bundled up and away from the cool air this time of year.

And that wonderful after bath calmness. It last right up till the time you start to lotion those warm and lavender scented bodies.

Spring may finally have reached the distant hills of Missouri. It’s a lovely sunny Monday morning! Kinsley is finally well, the house is in order, and we’re awaiting the arrival of Dan’s parent’s who will be meeting Little Sophie for the first time.

Vintage Apron Love

Isn’t this pattern fun? I love the idea of making one for each month of the year, with the darling embroidery patterns for each month, but alas, I am no good at embroidery, and I suspect that even if I were, it’s something I’d just never get around to. Somehow my wee ladies keep me too busy! So, on to eBay it has gone…

It’s a half apron, with a cumberbund style waistband. The pattern is on unmarked tissue. Included were detailed instructions, and twelve iron on embroidery patterns, one for each month of the year.

I even found the envelope interesting. It is marked with a stamped two-cent stamp, and says “PARADE” “Patterns by Pauline” in the return address. In the address slot, is a newspaper clipping which the addressee apparently clipped, filled out, and mailed to the company, in order to request this pattern. The vintage way of life just seems utterly charming and interesting to me!
