Patchwork holiday outfit

I have done patch work jeans before for Sadie, but never with Christmas fabric. I love the way they turned out. I also think the name "drew" looks adorable on the shirt. I think a lot about the way letters and names look. I even took it into consideration when I was naming my own kids. I had to like the way it sounded and looked when I wrote it-cursive & print. Yes I am a little out there. Just ask my friends.
I am fortunate enough to know the little girl I made this outfit for. She is my neighbor at the lake and I think this will suit Miss Drew to a T.

Every time I think of Drew I think of a funny story. I probably shouldn't share because it will tell you a little much about the man I married, but you might get a good laugh. Richard loves to get pedicures. I can't go without him. Last summer we went to Panache and Richard decided he would get his moneys worth and let them paint his toenails black. Well, he liked it and now he keeps them painted. On to the funny part...Drew came over to the house boat in her paddle boat to visit with some friends. Richard went to tie her boat up and Drew noticed his toes. Her eyes got as big as saucers and she was oblivious to everything else. She kept nudging the other girls to look at his toes while never taking her eyes off from them. I will never forget the look on her face. I hope she wasn't too disturbed :)

The bad thing about it is that my daughter thinks it's normal for guys to have their toe nails painted. On the way to church this morning my son was crying cause he wanted my make up and Sadie told him it would be ok that even though he couldn't wear make up, he could paint his toe nails.
