Mother's day weekend

It's not Mother's Day yet but it has started for me. The girls had their soccer, and then Daddy took all the kids and got flowers for me! Tons and tons of flowers, each their own favorite colors. It was a very lovely surprise. Then Daddy got take out Chinese food, my favorite!

He then tended to the kids for the rest of the day and let me sew in peace as I requested. I thought the day has been the best Mother's Day so far until everyone started cleaning up the house. WOW! Big M was especially eager to help when Daddy told him that the are doing this so that I didn't have to do anything. I'm speechless, simply speechless. The best day ever!

This is what I was eager to try today. I made a bathing suit for the first time. I am quite eager to try new things, and so I was itching to make it. It was challenging to sew, it was a mess, things were uneven, the stitching looks horrible BUT Miss K appreciated it. In fact, just seeing the little pink bow on the back was enough to make her squeal. She didn't care that it wasn't perfect. In fact, she loved it so much she didn't want to take it off. Now J wants me to make hers. Nothing beats making the kids something. I wanted to make a swimsuit because they are expensive, and we could never get the right fit and of course to buy cheap, is to buy cheap quality.  I've been buying too much fabric lately, and not making any money. Considering that this is the first summer that I am making most of the kids clothes, I think I am saving us money in the long run. I think. I'm pretty sure. :)
