kcw day 2, rain and a root canal :(

After a weekend of tooth pain, I reluctantly went to the dentist yesterday, and came home with an antibiotic, some pain medication, and an appointment for a root canal ... YUCK!

And to match my mood, this was what I saw out my door this morning ... although this picture was taken the other day, it looks exactly the same today.

And this from

What a perfect day to model some tank tops that I made for Kids Clothes Week :)

I LOVE these simple tanks!  I originally found the pattern here and adjusted the size to fit Mae.  I chose to make my tanks out of a woven cotton instead of knit, but I'm sure it would be a great pattern in any fabric.

I made the shorts a few weeks ago from a self-drafted pattern.  I've revised it slightly since then to make it a bit more roomy for Mae's cloth diaper.  Although if I have any success potty training her this summer (not very likely considering my other kids' track records), these shorts should fit perfectly.

I made the other tank a few weeks ago.  Maybe one of these days it will actually get warm enough to wear it :)

I have two more dresses I hope to finish by the end of Kids Clothes Week.  I think this may be the first time ever that I complete a sewing goal on time.  I have a tendency to think that I can accomplish way more than I really can in the time I have!  Make sure you check out all the wonderful creations in the Flickr group and visit the KCW website.
