Girls, Girls, Girls!

My baby girl turned two today!!

The Birthday Girl

She wasn't quite sure what all the fuss was about.

But joined in anyway.

Happy Birthday my little pudding!

I don't have a lot to show you as I haven't been doing much other than my Christmas ornaments. But I did take five minutes to throw together this little skirt for my big girl on the weekend just for the fun of it. I quite like how it turned out and she seems happy with it.

A skirt for Chloe

But mostly I have been working very hard on finishing my christmas ornaments in between many social commitments. Unfortunately I was a day late so fingers crossed they all reach their destination soon!

Here are 'the girls'!

The Girls!

I have started to receive some of my ornaments from my much more organised swap partners and I am absolutely blown away by how gorgeous they are. I still have to takes photos of one of them and will post them next time.

And now it's on to all the other Christmas sewing!

What a cutie! I hope the birthday celebrations went well. I love the skirt. Grace is constantly growing out of her jeans so I have several pairs I could try that on. I feel a project coming on! I love the christmas ornaments - they are fab.

I've ruined a couple pair of jeans trying to make a skirt like that - I can never get the cut straight. How do you do it?

I love your Christmas ornaments! Great work!! And happy birtday to your little girl - she looks much older with all that hair! We get the same comment with our little 2yr old too - off for yet ANOTHER hair cut next week!

Great work-- your group must have been very pleased to receive these!!

Happy belated birthday!

Love the skirt idea - would be excellent for my oldest. Most of her jeans still fit around the waist, but are much too short.

Just found you via Sew Mama Sew - and will be back!
