The View from Here...

 This really is the view from where I am sitting right now...

 Great Grandma loves to play "Match" with the girls
...and Ollie gets at least one long holding session every day.

 On our way to the Green House after church....
 This is how you grow a garden in the middle of the Nevada Desert :)



Maisy loves to go "Hunt for Strawberries".

 Two words:  "those cheeks". 


Life is good...

KCWC Girls Nightgowns...the Lazy Version

Well I am excited to say that the girls now have nightgowns for the summer.  They are something an accomplished seamstress would probably talk about behind my back but they were fast and they are done and let's face it...these girls make anything look good! ;)

Want to know how I cranked 12 nightgowns out in 3 hours?  Here's a short tutorial:

 About a month ago I was in Old Navy looking for something to fit my post pregnant body and was happy to discover that all of the clearance items were an additional 50% off.  I found a huge stack of long sleeved, striped shirts and about fell over when I saw they were marked at 97 cents!  That meant I only paid 49 cents for each shirt....I looked for the biggest sizes I could find knowing I'd be using them for something for the girls and came away with 12 shirts for $6.  
 Here's how I transformed them into nightgowns: 

 I ordered these crocheted flowers through Etsy.  You get 24 awesome little flowers for $6...I'm planning on using the rest for other projects or perhaps for hair clippies.
 I just gathered the band in the front and hand-stitched the flower and VoilĂ !

Three happy girls with a whole bunch of new nightgowns!

Favorites on Friday...Kids Clothes Week

Click on the picture to see what it's all about
I've been debating whether I should sign up to take part in this challenge...I mean I'm lucky if I get a shower in these days!  But the girls need nightgowns and I think this will be my motivation to get at least a few easy nightgowns done.

I thought I'd post what I would make if I had all of the time in the world for your enjoyment today:
