I was under the wire (again) for something mama made for Gusty's first day of 1st grade. What's new? I always sew under the gun. lol.
I've had these adorable transfers curing in my stash for quite some time. I actually went back to old invoices on etsy and I've had them for FOUR YEARS! hahaha. I about choked. Seriously, it's time to start burning through some stash.
I didn't make the shirt. I buy blanks at Old Navy and dress them up. But I did make the capri pants. Those are organic knit and I think that fabric may be pushing the same age as the transfers. Wish I could remember where I got that knit. It's just lovely. No wonder I couldn't cut into it. I was sort of bummed to see that Carla Sonheim doesn't carry transfers anymore but happy to see that she still has a shop.
Anyway, Gusty arrived home with freshly grass-stained knees that day, so I'm going to rule the outfit a total success. Unfortunately, the first day back-to-school didn't fare as well as the back-to-school outfit. She doesn't want to go back to school. boo. None of the kids do. My "first time in 18 years without children home during the week" may be officially over before it even began.
Really, I can't say that I blame them. Who wouldn't want to be around my sparkling wit all day long? Ok, I couldn't even keep a straight face when I said that.
Wheels are moving quickly on the farm. We'll be shopping for pregnant cows next Friday. Chickens are going to processing on Tuesday. I'd want to be part of all of that too, if I was a child. Having them under foot in the studio/farm may actually be living the dream. I just thought it'd come later than sooner.
Nothing's fo-sho yet. We'll see. We're certainly blessed to have the option available to us.
