Big Brother got to pick...

I mentioned in a previous post that I had let Logan pick out some fabric for matching outfits for he and Myra. Well, I finally got them finished, and here are the results. I have to say, the computer monitor does not really do justice to the brightness of the green. Here is Logan's shirt. He really loves it, and actually already wore it to church Sunday, for those who may have seen him. I suspect that people flying by on aircraft may have been able to see him...
If you are feeling brave, click on the image, and you can get a good idea of the print - I can't describe it!

Here is Myra's outfit. I was afraid that it would be tricky to make this fabric girly, but with enough ruffles and ribbon, anything can be girlie! I also made her a little hair bow and trimmed some socks with matching sparkly trim. Won't be doing that again - what a pain! Still, they turned out pretty well.
I also managed to mount Logan's new chalkboard on the wall of his room. As you can see, the love of green continues unabated, as he is coloring with green chalk. I mounted it with these cool adhesive strips with velcro between them, so that we could take the chalkboard off the wall and he could color wherever he wants, but so far, he's happy to stand on his bed. I love it, too! Chalk is infinitely easier to clean up than crayon!!!

You are amazing! The clothes are beautiful - I have such a weakness for blue little girls dresses.

I wish I could saw. You did such a wondeful job with the three of them. You forgot to add Mitch's too. His Shirt was perfect too.
