{ Spring Break - Day 4 }

Only one day left of Spring Break and I'm already feeling sad.

I've so enjoyed my kiddos home with me, it's going to be hard sending them back to school next week.

Anyway, here's how we spent our day.

There was napping....

TV watching....


Downright cuteness...

Postcards mailed off for the Postcard Exchange

I also worked on a Spring Ruffle Top, so easy to follow along and I can see myself making a lot more.

I deviated from the tutorial in some things but it still looks great.

I love the fabric I used, I've had it for a while and didn't know what to make with it, this was the perfect little spring top.2010_03180002

I always use brown paper bags to cut out my patterns

Ironing the seam for the chest strap

Placing the shoulder straps

Adding the ruffles

Here it is semi finished, I still have a bit of work to do on it, like the side shaping and the hemming. I can't wait to finish it and I can't wait to make more of these, going to make some without the ruffles and just using some binding.

So there you have it, that's how I spent my 4th day of Spring Break.

I always loved Spring Break when my kids were young and hated to see it end.
The shirt is so cute! Nice job!

You have been putting up some really nice pictures. I love the Spring break one's. It looks like the kids are all relaxed and ready for school next week. We go back then too.

Love the top. Boy you do get a lot done.

Have a great weekend.
