Weekend works in progress

Those great green chairs were one of last weekends finds. I have been wanting chairs to go with that table for the kids and these are perfect! I love the color and I love the fact that they won't tip backwards. And I love that they were only $2 each!
The little doll will be for a friend who just turned five. I feel like five is such a monumental birthday. Five. I love the sound of it and ,to me, it is the official close to being a toddler. Plus, any other moms of fives may or may not agreee but five is the start of something so sweet. I had a great time with the pillowcase dress and M has been wearing it all over. In fact, she has christened it with a bit of gold glitter that I don't think will come out but oh well! I have made her a skirt from April Cornell napkins (here is the link- I still don't know how to make a word a link!- )
So I have these other napkins and a great towel and they want to be made into something this weekend. I am not sure what, but I was throwing things together last night and I have a few ideas. Not sure which way things will go though!
I hope everyone has a fantastic long weekend and stays safe!

Love the little chairs. City Liquidators downtown sometimes has lots of that style and many colors too. Post a picture of the doll when it is finished. It looks like it is going to be so darling.

GREAT chairs! If you want to insert a link in your post, highlight the word that you want linked and click on the "link" [looks like the infinity symbol] button, type in the url for the link, and voila!

My swap partner, happy BIRTHDAY late. Aren't dads funny?

I LOVE the pillow case dress so very much. IT is absolutely one of the cutest things I have ever seen. Someday....
I might learn to sew.

Happy Fourth to you as well.
