Blogging & Twirling

Last week while I was sick with the flu and lying on the couch staring at Flickr creations and reading inspiring blogs, I decided to create my own blog. I wanted to make it more original than the provided templates so I started poking at the html one thing at a time. I guess I thought poking at html with a fever and aches would be easier than sewing because I could do it lying down (I haven't quite mastered the "sewing while sleeping" skill yet). It took me all week to figure it out but I think my blog finally looks cozy & inviting.



Saturday night I made my 2nd skirt for Claire who now likes to wear dresses that "catch the air". I used 3 Peas' easy peasy (punn intended) tiered skirt tutorial posted by Kuky Ideas. Claire wanted a long skirt this time and I had to use this cute Japanese fabric for the middle tier! She twirled and twirled until she couldn't walk anymore... It passed the twirl test with flying colours! I really love how this one turned out.





Enjoy your afternoon tea & quilted crafts :o)
