Happy Sewing

JFM 2011 030 (Small)

Every now and then I sew something that makes me happy...

JFM 2011 002 (Small)

...from the picking of the fabrics...

JFM 2011 008 (Small)

...to sewing while singing along mindlessly (and I daresay tunelessly) to my itunes favourites...

JFM 2011 012 (Small)

...to seeing my daughter's eyes light up as she watches me sew and
wants to wear it before it is half finished...

JFM 2011 026 (Small)

...to seeing happy pirouettes and twirling around the backyard.

It makes me smile.

Brilliant. I hope Mae has more of a waist than my Lulu as when she twirls in her skirt it slips down on her LOL.

Wow, that is a gorgeous skirt. Been meaning to have a go at one like that myself, but I can't seem to find the sewing machine for all the mess that has been piled on it!
