The crafting begins!

So I promised to post something crafty, didn't I? Here's a little something I whipped up over the weekend for a friend of Romily's who was turning four.
A cute applique tee - the design is from Ottobre 1/2008.
And a skirt of my own design, based on a similar skirt I made for Romily a while back, which was based on a tutorial from O+S. The skirt I made on Saturday is shaped and has a softer waist than the O+S design. Of course the birthday girl was more interested in the butterfly stickers we got for her, but her grandmother was most impressed with the handmade gift :)

Work is going well. Today was day #2. Things are slowly coming back to me. I know by the end of next week I'll feel like I was never gone. Tristan is handling the change pretty well so far, although I doubt I'll be able to put him down on Friday - he'll be doing his best impersonation of a koala bear. Rom will be her usual, crazy self!

That's a lovely little outfit - it's nice that handmade gifts are 'back'. Hope work isnt' too bad, it will be hard to get back into it.

OH! How cute and bouncy!

I recently saw an adorable onesie with a necktie appliqued on, and thought of your boy.

I love the cute skirt and top! Really adorable. If you don't like going back to work, maybe you could become a child couture designer! hahaha ;o)

What a perfect gift for a 4 yr old girl! Actually I think even an 8 yr old would love that.
