Been at the beach!


Back to craftiness soon!  :D


I have upholstered my daughter.

Doesn't she look like a 1970's settee?

I'm glad I ultimately opted against the protective plastic though.  :D

Anyhow!  Here's another vintage sunsuit from the coleccion!

It was 90+ degrees out... She was in no mood for a photo shoot.

No.  Mood.

Here's the pattern!  It's from 1977 - fitting :)

I sewed View 1, sans pockets, and I went with grosgrain ribbon for the halter instead of self-fabric.  I wanted a really flowy, exaggerated bow in the back, as per usual, and I thought ribbon would work better for that.  Score.

Trying to pick which rock to eat...

That one, I guess.  :P

Weeds almost the height of baby = fail.



"Emmy, please don't off the puppy..." = ^^ this face.

Ready!..... Aim!.........

"Aw, c'mon you guys..."



Emmys BeachTACULAR!

Hey friends and family!  No sewing related ramblings-on in this post... Just a good ol' Emmylou post, chock full of pictures!

Do enjoy :)

We love you all!  Happy Summer!



Happy 5th of July everyone!  I hope you all had an excellent weekend!  We sure did - Emmy went to the beach for the very first time, and ate her weight in Fish 'n Chips.  Ha!  Beach pictures forthcoming...
But I just wanted pop in and give a HUGE thank you to the amazing blogs who featured the Sunshine Sunsuit!  There are FOUR of them!  :D 
Check these blogs out, if you haven't already!  I ♥ them. :) 


I hope yall won't take this as bragging... I don't ever post when I've been featured, and now you get all this up in your face.  lol :D
It's just that this little number means so much to me.  I've never put more care or love into something I've made than this sunsuit for Emmy - and I'll never forget the where, when and why's of making it.
So the fact that others are lovin' on it too - that feels good :)
We thank you!
