Swimming and Sewing



My girls wore their swimming suits all day.
Before the sun was up they jumped in the pool, 
they jumped in the pool and swam before lunch, after lunch, 
before dinner, and then again after dinner for a night-swim.
In between swimming, they read books, colored, painted, and Jane sewed.
Then Jane decided to make a skirt for herself. 
 I suggested she make one for Lottie first to makes sure she liked the
 design and she could see the level of skill it required.
She agreed and Lottie is thrilled!


Jane went to my fabric stash and found two darling fabrics to use for
a cute little skirt with big pockets.
Looks like she'll be making one for herself in the next few days,
(and maybe one for me too!).
Now it's 9:30 pm and Jane is still hard at work...
and still in her swimming suit.

Happy Weekend! Hooray!
