Couldn't wait...

I couldn't wait till tomorrow in better lighting to take a photo of this adorable top I made Emily tonight. It's from this tutorial (modified for a child). I'll post better photos and how I modified it to fit a child for those interested in making it.
The blue fabric is much-horded-coveted Flea Market Fancy by Denise Schmidt.

The pattern was pretty easy. I couldn't understand a couple of things because when I printed the tutorial out I did it on "fast draft" so the pictures were not as sharp and I couldn't see a couple of things I needed to see. I had to adapt it to a child's size and I really didn't enjoy that. It takes up way too much of my time!

I think it's soo stinking cute I can't stop looking at it.

Now I have to make one for me.
I do feel almost 100% better:) Thanks for every ones well wishes.
Randomness: Jon is coming home Saturday from the States and bringing me books! Sookie Stackhouse #9 and this one. I'm soooo excited I don't have to order it! That really gets old living over here. I love the PX but they often don't have what you want when you're looking for it.
