{ very happy visit}

The day started sunny and warm here in ND! After dropped S off to school I went down south. I have had a date with my little girlfriend, Savannah and a quick stop at the bookstore to pick up some books for S. 

Savannah is my graduate colleague's baby girl. The first time, I ever met her in person was last November. she was just 5 weeks old {Our birthday is three days apart}. I held her in my arms and she was just comfortable and slept the entire time when she was with me.  Last week, her mama and her came to visit and she has grown into a too cute baby! She has dark blue eyes and pink cheeks. She is so mellow and happy all the time! She smiles a lot and welcomes new friends. 

I couldn't help not to make her some spring outfits after she left last week. It is a little crazy, but I went through all my stash, but I can't find {Savannah} fabrics!  Another  fabric shopping was made and I found the blue print and the soft floral print for her. 

It is always fun to make baby clothes. They are quick to make and the pattern can be modify in many ways. I used the same pattern made {S' preschool graduation dress} 4 years ago; only much smaller.  Since many paper bags have been donated as we pack. I used the linen tote for gift bag and though it would be a perfect library bag when she is ready! 

She had the little skirt and shorts on while we visit. They fit perfect on her! Since I have more blue prints, I plan to make few more shorts for her.  Of course, S needs something, too!
