I've always loved sewing and crafting. It wasn't until after I was married and got close to my sister-in-law Teresa, that I really took off! She taught me the basics of quilting and I've been sewing ever since. Scrapbooking has always interested me, and I love it! And I'm not afraid to try my hand at other crafty projects here and there. I consider it a great outlet and stress reliever!
One of my cute little nieces, Lainie, starts school next week. While I am here in Utah visiting, I wanted to make her a little something for her first day of school. I came up with this simple skirt...Oh my, I forgot how fun it is to make stuff for little girls...especially cute little girls who love cute things! And little miss Lainie Lou is quite the poser! She loves the camera.I'm staying with my parents while we are here in Utah on vacation. I LOVE being able to hit any number of quilt shops (there are at least three amazing ones) within a ten minute drive. It was SO much fun being able to touch and feel all the prints (rather than shopping online) and to match prints for the skirt. Aaaahhhh, I'll enjoy it for the few weeks I'm here! (And stock up for when I get home!)
