Wow JoAnne, you get an "A" for diligence in making that work. Drawstrings, buttons, zippers -- one of those is enough to make me cringe, but going back and forth between all 3 qualifies you for an award. In the end it turned out really cute. I love the fabric and your daughter is adorable as well.

Glad to hear that you are getting some much needed rain. It has been rather dry here as well. Thank goodness we put in a sprinkling system last summer, so our lawn and garden are pretty lush right now. We have been feasting on home grown zucchini and green beans this week. We are expecting a bumper crop of tomatoes later in the summer. the vines are totally loaded.


Persistence is the name of the game, huh? Glad you finally figured it out!
It's adorable!

I found your blog via Holly@crownlaiddown. Holly and I recently discovered that we live across town from one another, and I hope to meet her face-to-face soon. Next time the two of you get together, can I crash your party?? smile.

I've loved reading your blog. And I'm adding your Living Simply book to my reading list.

Blessings to you!
