Introducing ...

AKA Berdie

I finally ordered a dress form. JoAnn's had a sale I couldn't refuse - more than half off! I know ... sucker! Berdie is wearing a wrap skirt I made last summer from the Sew What! Skirts book. Ignore the wrinkles - it's been under the bed all winter ;-) As best as I can remember it was an easy skirt to make. The waist is a little off so I'll use this as a pool cover-up instead of an actual skirt.

Henry was so funny when he saw the skirt on Berdie. Our conversation went like this:

H: Why do you have an apron on her?

Me: On who?

H: On her ... what do you call her?

Me: Bernadette?

H: Yea. On Bert.

Me: It's a skirt actually.

H: Oh. It looks like an apron.

Nothing like a four year old to put you in your place.

Boys are just totally honesty aren't they?!!?

I hope that you and *Bert* have a long happy life together.

Welcome Bert! (And I just read that you had some recent "girlfriend" time away, too! Yay!) Sorry, I'm behind on my blog reading. Gotta catch up!
