Crabby and restless doesn't get you very far around here. We needed a project- all of us.
For the kiddos, I headed to the garage and the resting place of a particularly big box. A little maneuvering, some tape, and their bin of crayons, and voila. Kids- check.
For me, I headed to the dark closet where my sewing machine has been waiting for the past several months, and to my stash of fabric odds and ends. After a little digging and a sudden inspiration, I set to work on a new skirt for Audrey and a matching dress for ElmoBaby (since her old one was becoming a bit dated and out of season). Mama- check.
|If you're wondering about the bandage on my thumb, let's just|
say I had a distracted encounter with my mandolin last night
while slicing potatoes. Ahem.
|Notice the leg warmers, too!|
I love this little skirt on this loud girl, and I think the fabric is so perfect for her. I'm also happy to say ElmoBaby's new dress fits her so much better than the first one I attempted. Also, the box has not yet worn out it's 'new,' so on all fronts it was a successful diversion, this afternoon of projects.
