Uniforms and chickens

Emily on picture day and then yesterday wearing her new "uniform" shoes! We came home from our summer trip to her not fitting in most of her shoes. New stuff with tags! Ava can wear them someday but it was still upsetting! Anyway, I searched and searched for something really cute yet rugged and found these navy blue suede Mary Jane's from Morgan and Milo. I'm not sure how I feel about the zipper flower but Emily won't let me take them off and she saw them before I could take them off without her knowing! The boots are Gymboree and a couple of years ago I bought them in 3 different sizes on Ebay so she can wear them forever! The pea coat and khaki dress are Gap. I don't know how many people who read my blog need uniforms for their kids but I'm always looking for cute stuff so I thought I'd pass it on!
Sweet dinosaurs, oh how I love thee.......
Yesterday Ava and I went for a walk in our neighborhood. There is a yard that has 10 chickens in it and the girls love to see them. And FYI, chickens are gross up close. Some of these have places on their bodies with no feathers (like an open sore) and you can see the skin! Like I'm staring at a chicken breast.
Next up "droll-training". She may be potty trained but she still drools!!!
I have set aside my sister-in-laws quilt (I'm waiting on the backing fabric), continuing blocks for the Swoon quilt, Emily's costume (in my defense I'm waiting on eyelets) Mary and Nicolas' stocking (I'm waiting for the return of the names embroidered on the cuff) and countless other projects to start the Farmer's Wife Quilt Along! I made 7 blocks yesterday. I. LOVE. THESE. BLOCKS. I can't say why exactly but I love making them. I will post them soon but I need to post about a little pattern testing I did!

Drool-training-- That is so awesome I wish you could potty train a almost 1 year old!
I really want a pair of those boots. You make uniforms cute!

Cute stuff! So frustrating that what you bought before was too small. They (kids)just grow way too fast.

Chickens are gross. I learned this summer that the bald spots on the hens' backs are caused be the attentions of the rooster. Poor hens.

She looks adorable in a uniform! I can't wait to see your progress on the farmer's wife blocks!

First of all, your photos are gorgeous.

You and Emily make uniforms stylish.

Ava is a cutie even with drool.

Chickens are smelly, but they are cute when they are not being mean and pecking each other. That chicken coop is very cool though...

Lastly, OH YOU DID NOT start the Farmer's Wife blocks!! I want to do them so badly but I have way more things that would be put on the back burner than you do. POOH.
