I think I might be getting tired of this. Sure, I like the snow, but I don’t like Bill being out of work because of it. Maybe just a little sun?
After a funny little conversation with my 2 1/2 yr. old niece this past weekend, I was convinced that this little imp needed a new, pink “goodnight gown.” ( is that the cutest word ever?) Luckily I once had a little girl who swooned over pink and left me with a stash of wonderous pink fabric. I spend the afternoon playing around with cuffs and making bias tape and creating adornments for this beauty of a gown.
Yikes! Very pink. And no ruffles around the neck (it bothers her) per imp’s request. Can’t see very well in the picture, but there’s a sweet little fabric flower attached to the neckline. Sort of like a brooch. A very fun project–can’t wait until Sarah is old enough to wear goodnight gowns.
I think we’re in for more bad weather so I believe we’ll be making a trip to the grocery store for provisions. Probably a lot of baking and movie watching for our weekend.
Funny story I forgot to tell about: Last weekend during the snow storm, I had several candles lit around the house. As I was sitting in the living room knitting, enjoying the candlelight, I accidently set my knitting instructions too close to a candle. Before I knew it, the instructions (only page two was ruined), Madeline’s beloved Rock and Roll Encyclopedia, and a few magazines were all aflame. my hands were full of knitting and I couldn’t set it down for fear of losing my place so I hollered for help. I must do that too often because no one came! Finally Bill peeked his head around the corner to see what I needed and sprang into action. I am now grounded from fire.
