Ruffle skirt

Ruffle skirt

The sun actually came out today and I finished the newest skirt for my youngest. I decided to try something new and added a ruffle on the bottom of this skirt. You can't see it very well in this picture but I have others. I will post them later on.
With all the rain this weekend my girls were playing Mary Poppins. My youngest insisted it still might rain, so out came the umbrella. I think it completes the outfit.
I have a wedding the first weekend of June and a Bridal Shower the weekend before. My husband wants to give a gift certificate to his business but I'm thinking maybe Homekeeping by Martha Stewart.
I actually read the whole thing! It has so much great information that I may buy it as a bridal gift. They are rushing the wedding because they are buying a house. Houses get bought up quickly where they are moving, so I understand the rush. They also have been engaged forever so it's not surprising that it would happen this quickly.  So I thought it would be a perfect bridal/house gift.  They are asking for gifts from Home Depot and Bed Bath and Beyond.

Hey, do you have an official pattern for that patchwork skirt. It is so cute and it occurs to me that I have one last remaining child who will wear a skirt (all the other kids are wither boys or won't wear skirts anymore). And, goodness knows, I have lots of scraps...
