Jumpin' For Skirty Joy!

Here's a skirt I made from a sheet I received as part of the Summer Skirt Sheet Swap. I actually made something wearable--AND I wore it! I've got a few more sheet pieces to play with & I'm super excited about how easy it is to sew--especially with the awesome help of THIS TUTORIAL. You rock Lisa!

This picture is actually a self-portrait. I had the camera set up on a picnic bench on TOP of a picnic table in my backyard & the self-timer set for 10 seconds. When I was ready to take a picture, I'd set up the camera, run to the backporch, count to 10 & JUMP! I cannot tell you how many times I jumped up to get JUST the right shot. What you don't see are the beads of sweat forming on my brow. HAHA! Oh, & Mr. WhiMSy love came outside as I was doing my jumpy photo shoot & he had the weirdest look on his face: amused yet confused. He should be used to this stuff by now. Seriously.

  2. Hah, I know that look! I get that from my husband plenty, too :-)
