Here I go . . . another twirly skirt

I am just going to dive in and ignore the "what if I mess it up" feeling in the pit of my stomach. I am using the same pattern but this time I am making it for E & A. I decided to start with one and just add it to their closet to see if they notice or like it. If they do and it is a success (i.e. they fight over it) then I will make another. I ordered my fabric online with the intention of making two, but being a novice sewer I ordered the incorrect amount and do not have enough material to make two. So, one it is. I can handle one. So far I have the fabric cut (thanks to my handy set of new tools). I am ready to start sewing. In between cutting my fabric pieces I made a cake for some friends that are coming by tomorrow morning. If you ever have a craving for a sweet, sweet, gooey cake then Paula Deen's Gooey Butter Cake will surely fit the bill. Wow are they sweet, but they are tasty. There are so many variations that you could probably do a different variation once a week for weeks on end. I stuck to vanilla and added caramel pieces to the filling. Well, I hope to make some progress on the skirt this week; I'll post a pic once I have a finished product.

Yumm, a gooey butter cake! Gotta love those...
Good for you for sewing skirts! I always think I'd like to learn to really sew (my current skills = hemming) but I am lazy so I stay in the rut that I am actually good at... Cooking.
