It has been all about getting stuff crossed off the old project list around here this past week. A lot of it is stuff that I need to do for school and not all that exciting. But I managed to finish up those drapes I put out to the internet universe last week. I knew if I said that I had to finish them I would feel compelled to actually do it.
Crummy middle of the night photo again, but you can kinda get the idea of the brown silk – and the “puddling.” I was really happy with how they turned out and even happier that all six windows are done. My friend Jamie remarked last week that I’m good at execution, and I guess I am. The more things that are on my to-do list, the more I get done. But, If I don’t have a lot on my plate, I don’t seem to accomplish anything.
Speaking of executing…Jamie used the tutorial I did for Em’s birdcage dress and Addie’s all-time favorite t-shirt that was getting too short and she made this fantastic dress for Ad’s birthday.
Do you think Addie loves it? She wore it to a birthday party moments after she put it on, and has been asking when it will be out of the laundry ever since. Yes, I think she does indeed adore it.
Well, I am off to finish up Halloween costumes. Guess what Emma has decided she wants to be? I’ll give you a hint, or two. I’m off to find orange make-up, dye a wig green, and I just finished up these overalls…
Any ideas? (Oh, and she is on a total Roald Dahl kick, if that helps.)
