I had SUCH a lovely time at the picnic. I'm always a little sad that I didn't sit and visit as much as I wanted, or go to the after-party, but I also have such a lovely time chasing my kiddos around that it's definitely a mixed-feeling kind of thing. If that makes sense at all. Ah, well. The time will come when my kiddos won't want to come, and so I am enjoying them while they DO want to play dress-up with their mom. ;) I know they had a FABULOUS time, so it was worth it.

The only thing I'm *definitely* sad about is that I didn't take my camera when I went off with my kiddos on their adventure so they could show me the Fairy Dust Tree. It was an absolutely lovely tree whose leaves had all turned golden, and the kids were completely captivated by it. I kind of want to go back and stage a picture with them under it, it was that sweet.

I also came away with the thought that I absolutely must make myself a coat. Maybe two. I think I'm going to make it a bit like Jen's velvet spencer, since that wrap front style could be loaned out (specifically to my mom or sister, someone who is of a similar-ish size to me). I just need to find out if they did overlapping fronts for a coat, rather than just a spencer. I think I have enough dresses for now that I need to work on accessories, too...

They did do overlapping fronts on coats. Here's an example: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/351351208400914283/ and I know I saw other examples when I was working on one last winter.

Ooo. Perfect! Thanks for the example. And a historical hoodie is always a bonus..;)
