Monday, Monday

and now you're singing it too, right?
Ah Monday, Monday. . . so good to me
Monday morning, it was all I hoped it would be

My bowl filler was featured on V and Co. today. {I would say that my balls were featured, but it just doesn't sound so great. We wouldn't want to attract "that" kind of crowd, now would we.} Hop on over to Vanessa's blog for great patterns and stunning bright colors. . . just right for spring!

The girls wore their little spring skirts yesterday. You just can't go wrong with the Edith Twirl Skirt, right Connie? Plus, I had a great time guiding Hollie through her pattern. It was her first sewing project and you can see her cute skirt here.

It's all because of Jona's fabulous pattern and instructions, I tell ya. I know how to sew from a traditional pattern, but does that mean that I want to? . . . no. Step by step instructions with full-color pictures. . . I'll take that any day! You can find her blog here with links to her etsy site and her patterns.
And, here's a little bow that I made for Paige. Turned out cute!

Happy Monday everyone!

Bowl Filler

I finally pulled myself together and filled this big empty jar that has been sitting on my counter since Thanksgiving. I used a tutorial by Vanessa @ V and Co that I purchased off of her etsy site. You really should check out her work, it's so fabulous!

The two largest are made from Vanessa's pattern. The medium and little ones are covered with jute and rope that I had around the house. The medium green one is covered with a crochet chain of fuzzy green yarn.
