Because there are still cold days to come...

...I finally finished some new longies and a wool dress I cut out weeks ago. (Why, oh, why does it take so long to finish things sometimes? Sewing these together took less than 1/2 an hour, and yet, they'd sat waiting for weeks!) I've wanted to share them with you, but I've been having a hard time getting photos; Lucy is no longer an easy model. Here's what I get instead:

You wanted to take a picture of my new dress and longies?
But there are kids to chase! I can't stand still!

What do you mean, stand up to model my pants?
There's a step to climb!

And what's going on over there?

Come out? Don't be silly, mama. I have to eat this bread I found on the floor! And I like being in here!
(We call this spot behind the chairs "baby jail." Lucy puts herself in there all the time and hangs out there to play.)

You want a picture of my new longies?
You'll have to catch me first!

Omgoodness, could that child be any cuter?!
Seriously, how do you not eat her?

Andrea said...

Oh, Lise, this is HILARIOUS!
You have captured her perfectly.
Is that a piece of bread she has in her mouth, as she smiles widely in babyjail?!

What a fun and marvelous post. Thank you!

Karen said...

Wow, that is one lucky girl you have there, with her knittin' mama!

Great post, and great work!

Lise said...

Oh, Karen, I wish I could knit! I should have been more clear: felted thrift-store sweater, hacked up and re-sewn. The short-cut method!

I love those pants!
Yes, there will be cold days to come, but I know what you mean about taking forever to finish something. I'm making everyone's winter mittens in the summer this year. That way I won't be in a rush when they need them.

oh my, what a cutie! that dress is so beautiful--love it.

I'm the same way--I'll have a quick project sitting around to finish and when I manage to get to it I wonder why I waited. Life gets in the way, I suppose! :)
