I am fairly certain that I missed something...I thought it very rude when my alarm went off this morning. Can it really be Monday again? The weekend seems a bit of a blur, although I do remember having a fair amount of time to sew on Saturday. I made the Emmaline Apron and tried to photograph it last night. I just hate using the flash, and couldn't get a good picture. So, guess you'll have to come back tomorrow to see that.
Emma's best friend turned 7 yesterday.
Bowling and pizza ensued.
Can you pick up on the black light effect? What is cooler than seeing your teeth glow? Taking pictures in that lighting also proved to be difficult- that, and the fact that they never stop moving. All that giggling and fluttering about...I remember what it was like. Emma (above in blue) was funny about what ball she would use. It took me a while to catch on, but I realized the reason she would not come and sit by me in between her turns- was not that she found me to be "uncool" (to my relief) but that she wanted the pink ball. She would not leave its side. She stood there coaxing it to herself through the entire 10 sets (am I saying that right? I know nothing about bowling!)
I made The Birthday Girl the "artsy" clutch from Bend the Rules Sewing and we filled it with a ribbon belt (which took exactly 5 min to make!!) and bubblegum, chapstick and nail polish. Emma jumped on the "handmade" bandwagon and insisted that she also make the card. We both had such joy working together and giving away our handiwork.
Oh they are quite a pair! Seven years old is the limit. I will not allow 8. Stop it already.
Okay, Monday begins, apron tomorrow- see you then!
