Sew a skirt

There's something about Fall and the urge to create!
My latest is a really fun, easy skirt. I came across
a skirt tutorial on pinterest. You can find the amazing
girl behind this tutorial at Creative Spaces!
The instructions are so well laid out.
Here is my version and I like how it turned out.

We have been having an amazing Fall where I live, and I hope you are all having the same!

countryside picnic

It's been a few weeks and I've been busy as always. :) On a perfect summer
evening we headed to the country for a little picnic. It was for my baby's 3rd

Birthday cake in a jar was so simple but it was a hit for the little man.

Our boys... they are such a blessing.

I have these images in my head from when I was a child at my grand-
parents farm, of tables with crisscross legs. First I whipped up a little bench,
and then the table.

These are all the materials I used.(later my hubby added
2 small boards for more support)

Unfortunately I don't have pictures of the legs
before they were nailed to the table.

The boards underneath the table for added support.
I was going to paint the legs black, add a different color and
then go about distressing the legs, but decided
to stop after the black coat. It's different from what I would
normally do but I like it!
