My niece and her Mom and Grandma visited recently. It was a fun-filled, busy weekend! I'm not used to that 2.7-year-old energy; it's consuming and I'm in deep respect of my sister! That energy is so pure and bubbly and honest. I love it.
I was excited to have her wear two things I made for her recently. I love the colors and style of this cute little sundress. It's an easy-to-sew piece and is perfect for a growing girl, as it continues to work as she grows. Both the dress and contrasting bow are recycled tablecloths I'd made previously. Thanks to Habitual for the pattern!
And here's my little kitchen helper in her new apron. Tutorial here (with thanks!).
Fabric from Hobby Lobby.
We had tea parties and ate pizza. We went for walks. We picked flowers and squashed bugs. We collected pine cones. We touched everything. We shared sweet hugs and a few 'this is not going my way!' moments. We talked about what she would do when she's big (age: 3). It's inspiring to be with someone so in-the-moment. The challenge, I think, is for grown-ups to return there ourselves.
