Arizona sewing

I finished the 5th block in my own personal BOM for 2013, The Night Before Christmas by Bunny Hill.  This is a very big block, but so far I have managed to finish one each month.  I was finishing up the embroidery work on May 31st.

I made new skirts for my sisterly trio of granddaughters.  They are made from the leftovers fabrics, all from Bonnie and Camille, that I used for their quilts   Simplicity #2356 and multiple sizing  was a great choice with tiers and bands of different fabric.

The waistbands have elastic, but I also went with a decorative bow topped with a decorative button.

There was a different button color for each skirt, all part of a large card of buttons all different but coordinating that I purchased a few years back.

I would show you a picture of the girls wearing them, but some were not so willing having been in the pool for the afternoon.

These are so sweet. I love that Bonnie and Camille fabric and want all of it (what for? I don't even sew! It's lovely though!)
