And finally the circle skirts that were cut out last week. Very easy- when you go "DUH!".
A close up of the decorative edging stitches. Sew edging 1/2 from edge and then trim closely.
And matching jackets/cardigan style out of this fuzzy purple stuff. yardage 1 1/2 yds. at 60 wide. That should be plenty for a doll baby and a 3T.
And now for the monthly What am I going to do w/this material:
I give you 45" wide and 4 yards of cotton blueish background w/pinkish sea flowers.
When I asked DH what he thought about when he looked at it. He replied "Drapes". The colors do nothing for anybody in this house.
Knitting: Went to Knitting group tonight and I am so in love w/a Cherry Tree yarn. 24.95 bulky colorway winterberry. It stayed at the shop.
And I am planning a birthday party for Saturday: Bumpkin's is going to be 3, Princess had lots of cool birthday parties so what's a mom to do?
I am guess
a: I am getting old.. because I'm not into planning an elaborate affair.
b: Just not into this kind of thing anymore.
What to do... Bumpkin's 2 friends that are invited are both boys. Last year was the swimming pool.
Menu: Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, fruit/veggies, chips, ice cream cake.
Theme: Big trucks/ Bob the Builder
Items needed: Balloons, party favors: yellow construction hats,, tonka type trucks,
Random Website: Check out these party ideas: Renting a petting zoo, Renting a beauty salon, touring a fire station. These party ideas are for children 7 and under! I think that simple is better. (The tour of the fire station isn't to bad, it is better than under the big top where an actual circus was rented!)
