So Many Shorts for the Short People!!!!

More cousins came through,
and the cuteness was pretty high.

Cousin Dance Party!!!!

And this has indubitably been the summer
of the shorts.

The more I make,
the more we need.

I want to marry the knit fabric
that is available these days.

It's so easy to sew with.
So forgiving and flexible.

So freakin' practical for little climbing,
jumping, wiggling monkeys.

Even pink ones!
What's a mom of 3 girls to do?
Periodically I surrender to the pink.

Always under psychic duress.

This has been such a fun summer.
I really don't want it to end.

Last summer I was counting the seconds
until school started.

This summer everything tastes sweeter,

and covers itself with sprinkles.

I'm still grouchy, and tired, and smelly,
rest assured.
But less.
 So much less,
 that I can make
of shorts.

You know what summer is?

Yellie's Shirt

I have this little cousin.
She is feisty and little and bossy.
Because she's just turned 3.
And that's the job of any self respecting
3 year old.

She's also hilarious and wonderful.

One of her nicknames is Yellie
Because just like my Yu-
She's a yeller!

All the more reason she needs a cute top!

Dress them up in cuteness and
the evil is transformed!

What is it about bunnies?!!

bunny tutu

Oh Monkeys,
how you run me in circles!!

Ever have one of those weeks
when all you can do is sew
a bunny tutu?




I mean, Tutu.

There have been more walks in the woods.

Where weird bunny pocket outfits
are a must.
We're branching into surrealism over here.
Next stop, Dada.
