Overheard This Week

Son: Do you think that little girl in the restaurant will find her Daddy?
Husband: It was a small restaurant, I'm sure she already has.  How would you find Mama or I if you were lost?
Son:  I would look for you in your gray shirt and Mama's hair and face.

A Bit of Sewing

I wanted a pair of shoes, not just any shoes these shoes.  But, I have this issue with spending all my money on crafting supplies.  Instead I made a skirt:

It's the skirt from the Saturday Night Silk Jersey Set from Heather Ross' book Weekend Sewing. I adore that book... I used a lycra/cotton jersey fabric I had on hand and my most favorite supply of right now, fold over elastic!

 I don't think I will make a casing again, well at least not for a skirt!  Now, I just need to find someway to massage to budget to include those shoes!
