What to do when you’re so far behind you’ll never catch up? Work ahead, of course. This shirt was given to us by someone Charlie works with. It has a tag on the back with Eric Carle‘s signature on it. How cool is that? The fabric for the skirt came from a friend. The dress can’t be worn for several months – til the weather cools down. But it’s done and can now be hung in the closet instead of spread, in parts, across the sofa.
