Maxi Skirt #2

Between a broken AC and my skin cancer adventure, last week was a little crummy.  We were melting (it was 87 in my bedroom), when the phone rang and our friends invited us to dinner.  The food and company were great distractions to my itchy face.  One-by-one each of the men (all in the military), got phone calls of a base recall.  Since none of them work together, we knew something big had happened.  I don't know if it's appropiate to delight in someone's death, but I think there's a sense of relief that at least there will be one less crazy plotting to kill Americans. So a big Woohoo! and a bigger GO NAVY SEALS!

  As we left our friend's house, we noticed that the temperature had dropped almost 30 degrees!  Since our AC will not be fixed until Wednesday, we were thrilled. 
  So far this week rocks!

My kid wanted a hippy skirt too. (To see how easy-click here) I should have timed it, but it was easily under 30 minutes.  I again used the selvage edge again so I didn't even have to hem.  I used a little less than 2 yards of fabric that I got on sale, so I think the grand total was only about $6. Fast, cheap and cute!

 The only thing I didn't like, is how grown-up she looked.
