Spreading the rainbow love

December and January have been filled with all the usual school holiday activities - lounging about the house, getting together with friends, a bit of swimming and a few outings.  I had a few requests for rainbow skirts and figured since I wasn't working while the kids were on holidays that I'd do a few.  I also had a couple of baby presents that were overdue.

In the end I ended up making 9 skirts, and it tested my patience.  My friends have told me that I am not to make them any more as they don't want to listen to me whinge about them.  I like making them, but the process is always so drawn out, and I never allow myself to work on my own projects when I have work to do for others.  When I get to the end of the process and I have all these pretty skirts, I want to do it again....just not for a while.  Don't tell my friends that I said that, ok?

The skirts are going all over Australia, and two are going to the UK!

I also made some leggings to go with a few of the skirt orders plus a pair for Miss Moo.

The two blankets that I made for gifts have been sent off.  I was in such a rush to get them posted that I didn't take photos.  The other four (excuse the creases they were sitting around folded up)....

To Whom It May Concern:

Please let it be noted that I am quite happy to put up with your whinging if it keeps my little girl in rainbow leggings and skirts till she is too big to want them.

I didn't hear any whinging. Even if I did, there is always a storm before a rainbow appears.

Your work is always so beautiful! And my daughter is still pining for a rainbow skirt so the next time you feel like making them I'd love to be on your list. :)

Just yesterday we cleaned out the closet and the kid had me promise to keep her rainbow skirt (now way to small) for her own kids to wear someday. They are truly beautiful!
