I am spending a lot of time sewing school clothes this week. Maddie will start kindergarten & Sarah (who turned eleven this week) will be in 6th grade. I can't believe either of them are that big! Most of the clothes I'm making are for Maddie because Sarah doesn't like most of the styles I make anymore. I'll have to stick to making her church clothes I guess. She likes more casual things instead of pantaloons & sundresses. Luckily Maddie is totally into pantaloons & dresses. I had to rush to finish one earlier this week because she was determined to wear it to VBS whether it was hemmed or not. Today I'm working on Maddie's first day of school outfit. It is Dick & Jane fabric from a quilt shop. It's kind of busy, so I'm anxious to see how it turns out.
Sarah had her birthday party Saturday at Family Farm. They played on the zipline & wallered in the creek. I'm not sure if that is a real word, but that is exactly what they did. They had a blast. She got Rock Band from Uncle Russ & they have really enjoyed playing it. She is addicted to the drums, which is what she wants to play at school this year. This will be her first year to be in band at school.
I'll post pictures of the new clothes soon. Have a good weekend.

We just got back from church camp. I spent all week with 15 girls ages 9-12. Plus my 5 year old got to go since I was chaperoning. We had a great time, but I am worn out! I'll post some pictures of Fuschia Force (our team name) when I get caught up on my laundry. For now here is something I meant to post before we left. This is an appliqued T-shirt for my nephew's birthday. These are pretty much standard now for our birthday gifts. I use different fabrics to fit each child's likes. They are fun.
