Help with that spring wardrobe

  HAPPY APRIL!  I don't know where the first 3 months of 2011 went, but the calendar tells me it's already April.  That and the 50 "Hey, Mama, there's a spider on you!  April Fools Eve!" I got last night and will probably get this morning getting the kids ready for school.

   I tested another pattern for Jenny yesterday and it was as promised--simple and easy to finish.  I actually spent most of the day helping a friend sew up pillow cases for her couch, so this dress took me maybe an hour.  I'm telling you, Jenny has this pattern making thing down.   I struggle with the most basic parts of pattern making, and I recognize my talents at following patterns instead of making them.  ;)
   I really liked the ease of throwing this pattern together and it's slight 70s feel with the tube top/halter thing going on.  And the straight skirt is different from what Em usually goes for, and I really liked that too.

  We've been walking as a family around our property lately so yesterday I asked Chris to serve as photographer since he's actually really good at it (or used to be before I became the family paparazzi).  Em is quite the little model, huh?  She's into the side-looking away from the camera pose.  She makes me laugh so much.  She takes her modeling job very seriously and then immediately goes and changes into something else as soon as we're done.  Sign this girl up for the catwalk...

  We've got a teeball game this weekend, but other than that, I'm planning on relaxing, and getting some sewing done...maybe finishing something out of the WIP basket.  Or, maybe starting on a new dress for me.  We'll see! Here's to a happy and restful weekend to all and not too many silly pranks today, unless you're into that kind of thing.  I'm not.

P.S.  I've got an old friend guest blogging here on Monday, so make sure to come by then to support her!  And...her specialty is jewelry so she's got a tutorial for us!!
P.P.S.  Don't forget to check out where I'll be linking up this week!  These are great sites to get all kinds of new ideas.
