The big girl has been very interested in butterfly migrations lately and often talks about them. I'm not quite sure why it's an interest just now. We're well into winter here and the butterflies have long moved onto their winter quarters. Maybe it's the unusually mild winter we've been having. Yesterday felt a lot like Spring and not much like a Wisconsin February.
So I was inspired by the weather and my daughter to create a butterfly crown.
I drafted the pattern, selected colors and cut out the pieces.
Then later on in the evening I sewed the applique on. Next up will be the machine sewing portion.

- A 40 something mama meandering through life an 8 year old girl (the big girl) who is a ball of lightening and a 5 year old girl (the baby girl) who brightens our lives with her smiles. I'm grounded by my 40 something husband and partner (the hubster) whose quirky mannerisms brighten my days. Our family is rounded out with with an eclectic 21 year old boy-man (the boy) who I hardly ever right about now since he's off starting his own life.
I've been a single mama, married mama, divorced mama, career mama, SAHM, and WAHM. There was a short time of my life when I wasn't a mama, but that was a LONG time ago!
I hold an AA, BS, and MA and most say I'm wasting them by devoting my intellectual capabilities and energy in the nurture of the wee ones that I've been entrusted to raise, but there is nothing else I'd rather be doing these days. :)
