Kid's Clothes Week - Day 1

I'm back!  At least for a week.  ;)  And with such a great new post title too huh?  lol.  I know.  I rock.

Anyway, 4 times a year a bunch of ladies in the interweb get together and do a challenge called Kid's Clothing Week.  Now, the actual challenge is to do some type of sewing related activity for at least an hour for 7 days in a row (today is day one for the Spring challenge.)

However, since I sew for children all the time, and typically more than an hour a day, I've decided to challenge myself a little bit.  For me, for the next seven days, I want to sew for MY children for at least an hour a day.  I'm also challenging myself to use some of the patterns that I have and not buy any new ones (unless they're boy patterns because I only have like 2 of those.  lol)

SO, let's get this show on the road!  Today I finished up some tops for Grace and Kessa using CKC's Ruby's top pattern .  I also chopped off some old jeans and added a ruffle for Grace and I have some ready to do for Kessa but didn't get them done before I played the part of the good mom and took the crazies outside to play.

Kessa really gets into the modeling gig for me sometimes.  She's quite good at it when she wants to be!  lol

Grace you just have to catch when she's busy.  She won't stop moving if she knows you want to take her picture.

And finally....I saved the best for last.  

This picture cracks me up. This is my life (minus the almost 2 year old who was wandering around at the other end of the porch! ;) ) Zeke insisted that he needed in the picture too.  He was trying to look cool I think but I seemed to keep catching him when he just looked silly.  Grace is her typical goofball self...and Kessa.  Wow.  I'm not sure where my little girl went but this child doesn't look like my little 6 year old!

So, that's it for today!  Hopefully tomorrow I'll have more fun stuff to share!!!  :)  

(I have no idea what the fabric is or where it's from.  My aunt gave it to me years ago and this is the first time I've used it.)
