http://projectrunandplay.blogspot.com/ . I know a couple of the challenges will take me out of my comfort zone and trying to complete an outfit on a strict timeline isn't easy for me but I think it would be fun to try. The first challenge is to use the bias skirt tutorial at http://www.nobigdill.com/ . This is one of the challenges that is pushing me a bit because it isn't vintage, heirloom, smocked, embroidered, or traditional. I have begun a little skirt set for a friend's two year old daughter. I love the idea of Week Three's White Sheet Challenge and have just the right sheet to use.
This evening I have a wonderful date with my husband. We are going to the famous Vinoy Hotel in downtown St. Petersburg to spend the night and then have their renowned Sunday Brunch. Our Victoria-Rose will be home from college and will be playing the piano for four hours in the center of the restaurant. To say I am proud is quite the understatement! Victoria-Rose is talented and works hard but she is also the sweetest, gentlest, and kindest soul with a perfectly positive outlook on life. She teaches me something everyday and has since her dear birthmother placed her in my arms. What a gift!
