Another weekend ahead of us... tomorrow we have to get up early to go enroll in Dancing for the Fall. I bought Emma a new black leotard and pink tights today. Think I am going to have to crochet the 1945 Loop-The-Loop Snood . This pic looks like a woman with a lot of hair, but I think Emma can beat this
woman with her hair.
I cannot even French braid Em's hair, my hands just get lost in the shuffle!
After dancing, we are going to the grocery store. I am going through the Barefoot Contessa to make muffins.. I am going to try some before school starts, since I am going to start making muffins for during the school week. There are 3 recipes - Banana Crunch, Cranberry Harvest and Raspberry Corn. Then home to finish dresses, and I bought some flannel to make Emma a blanket out of the groovy sheet I bought at Salvation Army. The sheet is the third one from the left. I bought the first two materials the other day... the yellow will be a shirt and purse for Emma.. the second, a fall straight skirt to wear with boots for me.. and if there is enough left over I will
use it to line a couple of purses. The fourth material is another sheet. May make Emma another peasant dress/nightgown out of it. I am supporting 5 4 3 2 Etsy, I bought a pattern today. I cannot remember why I remember this robe, but boy I do. For some reason it conjurs memories of watching Family Affair (BTW, I still have my Mrs. Beasley doll and paper dolls...for some reason.
I forgot to post pics of my Amy Butler "In Town" purse I finished. I decided
not to use interfacing to help with the shape. I used canvas, only used 1 pocket on the inside, and used a black and white button on top of a felt flower from Posie Alicia . I found material at Hancock's and found some more of the Flea Market Fancy for here and there.
