Twice a year there is a conference of the LDS leaders and they speak to the LDS church for a total of 10 hours over two days. Matt and I both look forward to these weekends, but neither of us are the best at listening or staying awake the whole time without some type of plan to keep us busy.
For the first two hours, Matt painted a plane model he worked on, while I made Goobie a dress.
We have a Kate Spade shop right across the street from our favorite milkshake place and our wonderful library. A few weeks ago we were walk by the store on a very cold and windy day. I was "a bit" bitter about the cold weather. When I turned the corner, the window display was bursting with lemon yellow and it completely turned around my mood, and since then I've desperately craved some type of lemon clothing in my life.
Yesterday when I went to Joann's, I found some lemon print and immediately knew I needed to make Madeleine a dress out of it.
I love how it turned out. I used this free pattern. It was easy and simple to make.
Now we have our own little sunshine wandering around our home as we listen together as a family.
