Longing for Spring

April 27, 2009

Come, lovely May, with blossoms
And boughs of tender green,
And lead me over the meadows
Where cowslips first were seen

For now I long to welcome
The radiant flowers of Spring,
And through the wild woods wander,
And hear the sweet birds sing

My oldest son, Jacob, has had a special “girlfriend” named Magnolia that he has known for a little over two years. I think that Jacob fell in love with Maggie from the moment he laid eyes on her, and I am pretty sure that no matter where life takes them, they will always stay close.

For Magnolia’s 5th birthday, Jacob sewed her a heart pillow, which he gave to her with an extraordinary amount of pride. I decided to put my love of sewing girl’s clothes to use, and I made her a skirt that I had seen on The Artful Parent, and which came from this tutorial. I loved the fabric here, and this was a really fun project from beginning to end. I find that putting together a handmade piece, no matter if it is knitting or sewing, brings immense joy to everyone involved. Seeing Magnolia twirl around in her skirt was really special, and knowing that one day it will be passed down to her sister, Sienna, well that makes it twice as nice.
