Lilly's and a skort

Lilly's in my garden.

Girls skort in navy with white polka dot
and lime green with white polka dot.
Picture is a wee bit fuzzy so you can't see the dots so good.
If you click on the picture you get a bigger view.

Close up of the ruffles
with rolled edge hem.

And the lime green skort underneath.

Smocked nightie I made for my granddaughter's birthday.
It is a girls size 10 and
made out of cotton lawn print.
I actually started it last year.
Kinda slow!!

I edged the sleeves and hem with eyelet trim.

 And a close-up of the smocking.
(not my best work)

Embroidery on t-shirts

We have friends from Vancouver coming to visit this weekend.
Their girls are good friends with our girls
and we have not seen them for a year.
All the girls are very excited.
Also, it is their oldest daughters birthday this weekend.
She said she would like a chocolate cake
with yellow icing.
So I thought the theme for the birthday
could be the color "yellow".
(Grandma's aren't aways that creative when
it comes to kids birthday parties.)
And I thought it would be fun for the girls
to all have the same t-shirts for the party.
We also got some yellow hair spray!!

I got the t-shirts at Michael's on sale
at 2 for $5.00.
What a good deal!!

The embroidery design is from Embroidery Library
and stitched out real nice.

Flowers in my garden

Just thought I would share some pictures
from my garden.

Sew Something Cute

A cute skort.
With a double ruffle.
This one I made in a size 10.
The grandkids are getting older and soon
won't want to wear ruffles.
The shorts underneath are of the same fabric.
I did a rolled edge with the serger on the ruffle.
I am working on another one with a contrasting
short underneath.

So that is my most recent project.
Also weeding and watering to do outside
The mosquitoes are fierce which
makes it rather difficult.
