Rainbow Colors

Spenser loves rainbows. Actually she loves "rainbow colors." To her, any multi-color combinations are "rainbow colors." It doesn't matter if they are the actual colors of the rainbow or pastels. When we bought her new summer sandals, she (not to my surprise) picked rainbow colors (which are pastel pink, blue, green, and yellow).

When I saw these rainbow fat quarters, I knew she'd love them. Since skirts are so easy to whip up (and because she wears skirts all the time), I figured she "needed" a rainbow skirt. Of course she is pleased with her newest skirt.

After 4 1/2 years, I'm still trying to get used to a girl in the house. She is certainly new territory for me. She's quite different than the boys. Rainbow-this and rainbow-that and all those wonderful girly things that she loves have been a real treat in this house of boys. We all adore her. Even her five brothers.

That is SO Spenser! I love it! Another beautiful creation! I can't wait to see it, hopefully she'll be wearing it at our next family get together. Love, Katie

Adorable. That's just happiness in a skirt.

At first glance I thought that was a purse! It is an adorable skirt...but would also make a fab summer bag!

At one time I had a bunch of that fabric. Through the years, I've made sundresses, headbands, wallets, you name it! The little girls still ask for the rainbow headbands at craft shows. Nice to know you can still buy it.

Do you cut your boys' hair? Just wondering, as I hacked away at my own sons. I actually thought to myself, "I wonder if that really smart chick at sky is pink cuts her kids' hair?"

I bought a remnant of that same fabric the other day, thinking it would make a good, quick skirt for my girl. Great minds....

it looks like the perfect skirt for her. there is something special about having a little girl in the house. i know what you mean about it being new territory, though. i'm sure that will contiune, esp. through the teen years. :)
