May 11

More shorts!  This particular pair will be great for really hot days.  The fabric is very fine--similar to the feel of double gauze.  I finished up the others this morning.
I am sorely tempted to make him a dozen more pairs, but in the harsh light of day remembered how fast he grows.  These are 12-18m, so we'll see how long they last this 8 month old.  Also I had a dream about sewing more shorts, so it might be time to take a little breather.
Soon I'll make a few for Lucy.  She needs some handmade summer duds.
Today this rosebud hair clip will have to suffice.
Now I'm racing to finish setting in the sleeves on my new Alabama gore dress, so you have that to look forward to.  In the meantime, I'm wearing that scanty slip and keeping the blinds closed.
