Spring Break was last week. The spouse had surgery on Monday and was home Tuesday to work on recovering which meant that I needed to keep the offspring out of his hair. So I took the pair to the zoo for a few hours one morning. We found a lovely rainbow inside the polar bear exhibit.
These two made me take a picture of them every 15 minutes.
Then it was on to some sewing earlier this week. The blouse that I made for Elsie's Eloise outfit was made in a hurry and therefore did not have a center front opening.. meaning that it was a bit of a tight fit. So we sliced up the front and added some multi-colored buttons... courtesy of Anthropologie's holiday wrapping from 2008.
Working on writing with my stylus... I keep telling myself that the letters will get smoother and more like my writing with a pen if I keep doing it.
I also had to do something about the length of her denim skirt... it was approaching Lolita shortness in the back. Luckily she loves eyelet and I happen to have about 10 yards... so we added a flounce and brought a little modesty back.
Then they both made me take their picture.
Today I am sewing a silver leotard for baton twirling... a request from Miss E.
