Onesies, Twosies

A funeral brings Iris' aunt and cousin for a visit on short notice. People react to death in different ways. I make baby clothes.

Iris' second grade teacher left at winter break on maternity leave. Iris also left the class and entered third grade after the break. By procrastinating, I was able to learn that she had a girl.

Her two year old cousin gets a dress with matching panties and leggings. Her mom says she never has enough pants to last until the next wash day. This should help.

Notice how I used the "sickly mauve of blue-rinse hair" that Suzy Menkes, fashion editor for the International Herald Tribune, hates so much. Dharma Trading calls it Plum Blossom and I love the color.

Iris and I owe you a better picture of our mommy and me tulip skirts (aka An Affair to Remember aka butt skirt) from Annie Modesitt's Romantic Knits. We will take some daylight pix with the cover vantage point later.

  1. You and Iris look fantastic in your butt skirts! Grief is an interesting animal -- you were very productive. Although it comes last, the sentiment is not small -- I'm sorry for your loss.

  2. You two look so cute in your skirts.

    I'm sorry about the death in your family.

  3. Thanks for the well wishes. A friend of the family passed, the father of my SIL's best friend. There was a huge turnout for his memorial.

    We went to SD the day after the memorial. Iris, her cousin, and 3 of his grandchildren had a playdate yesterday at a local park.
