C'mon, Get Happy!

I am trying to force Springtime over here. In a sort of Brady Bunch, Banana Splits, Laurence Welk sort of way. It's dreary outside, and still damp, and I needed a pick-me-up. So I sewed these dresses for the Goddaughters:

Made from this pattern, a vintage sheet, and some cotton poplin I bought for no good reason except that they are "my" colors.

I also made these cupcakes for the coworkers. From this recipe, with some store bought frosting and 2 packs of M&Ms, arranged with love.

If Spring doesn't happen soon, things might get even more extreme. Or maybe I'll come full circle, and start sewing some neutral colors again.

Those tops make me crave creamsicles and orange sherbet! Lovely!

Are those the most darling dresses or what?!
