just in time!

Hello again, friends!  I hope you all had a nice weekend and that those of you who celebrate Easter had a special time with family, faith and friends.

I did finish Aria's dress, just in time.  I had to push through on Saturday afternoon/evening, a feeling which reminded me why I don't prefer to work under pressure.  I just don't thrive under that last minute rush.  Some people do, right?  I'm so glad I was working with a familiar, well-written pattern at least!

Anyhoo, we took a break from croquet on yesterday's beautiful, sunny Easter afternoon to take some pictures of miss Aria in her Morning Walk Marissa dress.  Fabrics provided by Fat Quarter Shop from Leah Duncan's latest collection.  It's lovely, don't you think?

With lengthened straps, this size 9/10 will fit her throughout the summer and maybe into next year.  Because the years run along so fast, don't they?  Let's be grateful for each and every sunny spring day, each twirly girly dress and every warm smile. 

Happy Spring!

  4. Aria's dress is beautiful, a wonderful choice by a beautiful girl! I'm another who doesn't like being under time pressure - great you finished it in time considering all that's going on in your family. Your home farm looks deliciously green and inviting.

  22. It did turn out beautifully! But I know what you mean about that feeling of pressure. Ugh! My mom always works that way and I just can't. She was sewing the buttons on my wedding dress the morning of my wedding Ian's it about gave me a heart attack. In the end it sounds like you had a beautiful Easter Day. I love your grateful attitude in the closing thoughts. Life is so much better when we grasp at and enjoy each small thing, just like you said. I hope you get plenty of more sunny spring days before summer heat sets in!
