About Us

There are four of Them: three girls and one boy, little stair-steps all. There are two of Us: best friends, co-parents and truly in love. The Six of us have epic adventures full of laughter and love, occasionally containing tears, but always together.

Skirting The Issue

At three-thirty this afternoon, I was reminded by my lovely husband that the two eldest have an Advanced Ensemble concert this evening. I asked PrincessE to go and try and find some black pants/skirt. The dress code is black bottoms with white shirt. She came back wearing her brother's trousers that are a size 8. She currently wears a size 12.

Not gonna cut it. 

So, I went to my massive fabric stash, located some black fabric, googled a fantastic tutorial for an adorable skirt AND 30 mins later had a perfect black skirt. 

Shew.  I rescued myself once again. 

The tutorial is here:  http://www.danamadeit.com/2008/07/tutorial-the-circle-skirt.html

Ya know, if you need to whip up a skirt in 30 minutes because you've not been paying attention to the schedule.
