I'm back! I went missing for a while. My family and I took a trip to the Northwoods to visit parents, grandparents, brothers, sisters, nieces and nephews and to deliver some handmade gifts. We had a great time over the July 4th holiday with campfires, fireworks, boating and eating. Lots of eating. I think I gained about 10 lbs. Yikes!
A few weeks ago I blogged about a dress that I made for my youngest daughter. I also stated that I had challenged myself to make a small collection. Now this collection wouldn't pass Heidi Klum's test but I happen to be pleased with my first time efforts.
This little outfit was made for the youngest of the nieces and nephews on my families side. Same concept as the first boys ensemble in this post but the button-up tab is striped linen rather than denim and it is of course a smaller size.
Here are some of the children in their outfits. My youngest daughter refused to wear her dress and be photographed and one of my nieces was not at the gathering.
I had visions of splendor with children frolicking in the hay field wearing their handmade clothing and letting me photograph them with great big smiles. The sleep deprived children had other ideas and between being viciously attacked by mosquitoes and dogs running in and out of the picture this is the best that I was able to capture.
Despite my failure to get the creme de la creme photo my nieces, nephews and my own children are B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L and they wore their outfits well!!! Don't ya think?
I'll have to do a post on our Northwoods trip very soon until then...
Thanks for stopping by Blue Sky Confections. I'm glad to be back!!!
