Oh Happy Day
The kids are so excited about growing some of our own food again. They were incredibly eager to get out and help be make our little strawberry patch. I think that, in some ways, it reminds us all of when our life was more settled & makes this place feel like a home instead of just a stop on the ride.
Next on the list is procuring some blueberry & blackberry bushes.
So, in the end, we decided to just do a basic design. The jeans are a size larger than she normally wears, but have an adjustable waist that draws up small enough to fit her. So, I decided to make the skirt hit below her knees in order to accommodate growth without getting too short. She should be able to wear it for a very long time. Honestly, the fabric will probably wear out before she outgrows the thing. Even though it didn't turn out quite like I had envisioned, she loves it and that's what matters.
