Meltdown Monday

I must have woken up on the wrong side of the bed. Even though I sleep in the middle of a queen size, I was seriously grumpy this morning. Little Miss wakes me up, as usual, with kisses, cuddles and elbows in my boobs and ribs, ow! She ain't as light as she used to be. Once I got up, I was ok, until I realised the shower hose had split! A bath doesn't have the same refreshing start to the day, does it? Have run out of espresso coffee too, what a start to the day!
And while in the bath, I got to see all the mould from a different angle......

I started these little tops last night, deciding on a t-shirt ban this summer. Last years t-shirts all fit the little one, but they are old, I'm sick of looking at them, but can't justify spending money on more when I have a fabric stash! Little Miss got to pick her own fabric, and here are her choices.... They came from this pattern I got for 99c at Savers. I made the size 5, the easiest pattern- 2 pieces and some bias binding.
I tried it on for size this morning, and was hurried up to finish it! My first attempt at machine sewing bias, worked a treat. I think this used to be sheet, and the bias is vintage too. A very happy girl
Playing with her barbie's I gave her yesterday. I despaired she would never be interested in them, and have had this campervan and horse in my wardrobe for about 2 years! I also gave her the babrie someone gave her when she was 2 (go figure), it is a Cinderella one with a flashing mirror etc. Happy hourse of imagination ahead. PS At nearly 5 she is having trouble putting the shoes on, would have loved to see how she went at 2! haha
I think my bad mood today is related to my dog- he is still freaking me out, he is actually depressed too! Has sat in the basket all weekend, i've had a jacket on him but he looks cold. I miss my shaggy haired crazy pup, just can't get used to this newer, slimmer version. Need to bond all over again, I think.

Cute dress! My sewing skills are very minimal at the moment, but I'm working on them :)

Also, I've tagged yours as a favourite blog, welcome to pass it on but totally optional!

gorgeous top... love the vintage look... you did really well on that one :)

and I know exactly what you mean about those barbie shoes... although at two years of age, she would probably have just eaten them!

Top looks gorgeous on her!
Hope your pooch starts to feel better soon, I think I'd sulk in a basket too if I had a Number 1 all over!
