Easter Makes Me Crazy
When Emily was 1 I decided two things.
1. I thought it would be fun to learn to sew.
2. I wanted Emily to have a really cute Easter dress.
So naturally I decided to learn to sew while making a really cute Easter dress. Anyone who has ever sewed a dress might be laughing at me, or cringing, or whatever. Someone should have intervened, but I'm glad they didn't. I found a sewing mentor and my mother-in-law let me use her machine and here is the end product.
Pretty cute huh. So I am glad that no one discouraged me.
Fast forward a few years to Lyla's first Easter. I recently started attending "knitting group" in my ward. I was in desperate need of a creative outlet, but could only do it while the girlees were asleep at night.
Knitting is perfect for that.
Anyhow- I knitted a hat first and it turned out pretty cute. Then I thought, "holy cow, I could make Lyla a cute sweater for her Easter basket." I mean of course someone would knit one hat and then move on to clothing construction. (See, I'm crazy sometimes.)
The ladies I knit with were SO helpful and ta da.....
my darling model in her darling yellow sweater.
Sometimes being crazy pays off.
