What To Wear To Stay Cool?

I am in the Front Range Modern Quilt Guild with some very talented young women. They make their clothes, their children's clothes, and make amazing quilts! They always come to guild in something new that they have made. It is so fun to see what they will be wearing.

We have a quilt store in Monument, Crafty Laine, that is owned by Angie - one of the very talented young women. It was from Angie that I got the idea to make a skirt for Shannon, my daughter-in-law! Shannon and Angie are expecting babies in August. Angie was wearing a darling skirt that is easily worn while pregnant and also after the sweet little one comes. She made her skirt using Anna Maria Horner’s technique for a uber-cute faux smocked – elastic gathered skirt that is a FREE tutorial on Anna Maria Horner's blog. Traci, another talented young lady in our guild, has a blog with many great skirt ideas along with a tutorial for her version of the skirt!

Well, what do you wear to stay cool in Florida in the summer heat and humidity?? How about a skirt or two made just for you, just because you are loved, or just because!!! Here are the skirts I made for Shannon.

Derick, Shannon, and the boys will be going to Tampa for a conference with all the people in the US who have adopted children from Kazakhstan........that's our Asher and he is precious!

Aren't these boys just the cutest?? They are both so precious!

I think their Mom will be the cutest Mom there, too!!

Luv ya, Gigi
