I have a wee bit of a cold so I'm going to use that as my excuse for not blogging for what? 6 weeks? Longer?
I got frustrated weeks ago trying to down load a picture because posts are so much better with pictures. It wouldn't download. Even when I walked away and let the compute work/think for 15 minutes. My IT person has been too busy to help me, boo hiss. I'll see if I can find something for you to look at though.
In September, the two older granddaughters, their mother and I went to Hancock's Fabrics to pick out Halloween costume patterns and fabric. The four year old wants to be a princess and her two year old sister is copying her. We looked through the books and the four year old picked every princess dress there was. Her mom suggester looking at them all THEN deciding on one. A pattern was chosen and then we looked at fabric. Four year old got pink and then told her sister what to pick. The two year old agreed to everything. She liked it all. Mom took the four year old away and the two year old I an picked blue for her. We got a shiny satin for the main body of the dresses, sparkly fabric for the sleeves and peplums and tulle for the over skirts. Very fancy! Good thing these girls are little so we didn't need much fabric! The oldest did a nice job picking out matching thread. (How did she know we even needed thread??)
I think I'm rambling. (It's the cold, I'm delirious)
So, Halloween costumes are almost done. It has been great fun sewing dresses for little girls again.
