bonding time....

what i did today:
1. wore my shorts from ice, scarf from dotti, glasses from fiorelli and singlet from colorado.
2. for a while now mum has been making these overall type outfits, and i had asked her if she could show me how. so we both went to spotlight (yahoo! two days in a row), and picked up some material and little buttons.
it was a great day, i hardly get the chance to just hang out with my mum and it felt really special. i think she loved the fact that she could pass something on to me and have that mother daughter bonding time. we talked and laughed and reminisced about when i was growing up.

six hours later, we were having such a great day that we lost track of time. anyway, here is what we came up with. keep in mind this was just a trial run to get the pattern and to quickly show me how its done so there were a couple of mistakes here and there.
it isn't entirely finished either, i have yet to hem the bottom and place maybe another button or two for embellishment and then its done. in the long run i hope to maybe make the same thing but as a dress instead.

3. on the way home i was parked near a 'wicked camper' van and on it was this delightful message....
until next time xoxox
