Sweet November

Oh, pouring down rain today and it sure turned WINTER overnight here in California! The time changed and Viola! No more daylight hours, EVER (it gets dark at 3 in the afternoon now. What is up with that?) and it's so cold at night. I wasn't expecting the deluge of rain, that is for sure!

I held off posting these pics of this little outfit I made for the daughter of one of my favorite bloggers. I did it when I was on the purse making frenzy. And I sent it to her for her toddler to wear. If she posts pictures of her wearing this little ensemble, I'll post the link!

It's lined in flannel and is all strips of scrappy vintage fabrics. The buttons are layers and layers of stitched squares set on point so she can pick and pull at them and it won't matter a bit!

It turned out completely differently than I had planned it in my head but that is the creative process! By the way does anyone else but me notice that it does no good to jot down mental notes if you have no way of retrieving them?

I'm sorry! I've lost my mental notes! Ha ha!

Anyway, Happy November everybody.

Hi Miss P. Thank you for your email. At least it satisfied my curiosity!

I love the little outfit and I hope we get to see pictures of the little one in it.

Please send some rain over here, we are in dire straits but hopefully there will be a decent drop later tonight. The pictures on the radar look good, but slow moving.

Have a good weekend.

No rain for us yet but it does get dark by 5:30 and I don't like that.

The little outfit is so cute. I love the buttons you described. What a cleaver idea. I hope we get to see photos of the outfit being worn.

I lose my mental notes all the time!!

..what a gorgeous little outfit. And, it was just perfect on the model as I saw on Soule Mama's blog today.

And, to think...I was actually missing the Valley's weather lately. (I'm formerly of Fresno and San Diego - but now in Kansas). Guess I don't have it SO bad (for right now anyway).

It's beautiful! What a crafty-clever idea to make buttons just for wee fingers to fondle! Well done you.

I can't stop looking at this outfit, it's so lovely. I saw it at Amanda's blog when she first posted it and I keep looking at it over and over!

I do have a question that keeps jumping in my head- how did you make the "buttons"?
