A Little Sewing

Aaaahhhh! My computer seems to have recovered. When it began giving problems, I tried everything (clean, compress, delete, etc.) and nothing seemed to help. Now, on its own, it seems to have decided to get well.

I've made a little bubble suit for Bryce, have almost finished with a dress for Mila out of the same material, and finished the yoga bag for Robin last week.

Love this material! Bright and cheerful.
Detail of front tucks.Back with snaps.
This little devil took me longer than I care to admit. The pattern seemed to have steps missing (or my comprehension has huge gaps), and eventually, I just tried to put it together in a way that made sense to me. Which required some unsewing, but which at least allowed me to complete the darn thing.

This inspiring article is about the way in which classical music is helping lift children out of poverty in Venezuela. Here is a little video clip of the children in concert. Very uplifting.


  1. that fabric is so sweet and cheerful. I bet bryce looks adorable in her bubble1

    that's a wonderful program in venezuela, thanks for sharing.

    glad your computer decided to fix itself...isn't funny how often that happens.

    my neighbor came by last night saying her cable wasn't working wondered if ours was also out, I turned on the tv our's was fine. suggested maybe before calling the cable co. she should try unplugging the cable box, let it sit for a bit, plug it back in and see if it works. it worked. machines are funny....

  2. What a cute bubble!!! I love it!!! :) Thanks for sharing!

  3. Kimy - Thanks - I hope it fits nicely - then I can make some more and maybe get the process down pat.

    Loved that article about the kids in Venezuela! How cool is that?

    Computers - sometimes I believe they think for themselves, complete with personality quirks, frustration, stubbornness, and pouting...

    Ivory Spring - Thanks! And thanks for stopping by!

  4. I love the idea of the little cousins "matching" while still maintaining separate style as well as identity. CUTE fabric! Love the little bows.

  5. How sweet! Love those cute lil bows.

  6. ACey - Thanks, ACey, they see each other so rarely, I thought it might help build a connection to have some clothes in common.

    Rian - I love the bright grosgrain ribbon and wish I'd had that hot pink!


Good to hear from you!
