My mother is an awesome seamstress. When we were younger she would make us clothes. I remember her making these matching skirts for the girls. When I grew out of mine I thought, "Yahoo, goodbye skirt!" -only to be given my older sisters skirt and the life of those skirts doubled.
I don't think I appreciated what my mom did for me as much when I was younger. Now that I look back, I wished I would have asked her to teach me how to sew and make things. My sewing skills aren't the best, they are rather sloppy because I really am impatient and don't take the time to do it right.
Here are a few of my sloppy creations. They look okay from afar, just don't look close up!

Alameda hasn't had a Super Saturday in years and I thought it would be fun to do one (yeah, "fun" isn't quite the perfect word to use for the person planning it!) and I put together a blog for the sisters. It is not completely up and running, but you can check it out at:
