She Models and It Fits….

We had a lovely dinner visit with my son and his family and  I was so excited to see that the vintage pillowcase dress I’d made truly WAS Madeline’s size.  She has lovely blonde, curly hair and the dress looked angelic on her.  The picture doesn’t show it off that well because she wasn’t in the mood for modeling for the camera tonight.  She had her mind on all the neat toys I’d picked up last week at the wonderful garage sale.

Friday morning I’ll be driving to Marcs early so that I won’t be stuck in any Friday or holiday traffic.  This is a long weekend for us with Monday being the holiday.  I’ll be there for the week but I’ll be lurking around here I’m sure.

I just wanted to stop in to leave you with this picture….and bid you a wonderfully happy Friday and weekend.

Child’s Vintage Pillowcase Dress … Vacation Thursday..

This is a better picture of the placement of my vintage “ladies in frame” I posted about earlier this week.

This is ANOTHER beautiful day on my vacation and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed sitting outside sipping my morning coffee.   I absolutely LOVE my morning coffee…MORNING coffee then after that I’m set for the next 24 hours.  Sometimes, I go to bed just thinking of how I’ll love waking up in the morning anticipating that yummy coffee.  Crazy…or do you feel the same?   But just the morning one.  I like to have a cup of tea in the afternoon but neither coffee or tea past 7:00 p.m. because then  I know that even counting sheep won’t put me to sleep.

 I made the vintage pillowcase dress for Madeline last night from this week Tuesday’s thrifting finds.   I posted a tutorial a few days if you are interested on how simple it is to make.  

Doesn’t the hemlook look cute at the pillowcase edge     What a fun day I had yesterday I was able to work on different projects and do my own thing.  

My eldest son, his wife and Madeline are coming over tonight for dinner.  So I’ll have Madeline try it on.  I have enough material from the top of the pillowcase to make a similar dress for a doll I’ve made some time ago.  She needs a dress and then she can go home with Madeline.  We’re having fajitas so I’ve been doing up the peppers, onions, chicken, mushroom ahead of time.   It’ll be a short visit because she has soccer tonight so I’m going to be prepared so we can visit a while.  (If you check the post after this you’ll see Madeline modelling the vintage pillowcase dress-now I want to make more!)

On that note I had better get on with my preparations.   Have a lovely afternoon and delcious dinner too.
