Ah, it feels good to get something done that doesn't contain a hem! Earlier this month my sister Jerri Lynn brought me some vintage linen love from New York. She wasn't sure I would like this table scarf or even be able to use it ...... Like Hello...... do you NOT know me? It's amazing....... truly it is! Just feast your eyes on this puppy....... I mean birdies"
I couldn't stand it any longer and broke out the red corduroy and made a bag. I'll be listing it on Etsy later but will definitely be making one for me with the other one....... oh, forgot to mention, there was a pair of these scarves! Oh, the love!
Sunday, my boys left for Boys Scout Camp. After much packing, signing of permission forms, and the ever aggravating....... "Please be carefuls"........ they were off. Here is what two boys who went through all of the above look like when leaving their poor distraught Mama:
Yup, the one on the right is 14 years old and doesn't think he needs the "please be carefuls", "watch over your little brother", "use the sunscreen I gave you", "please bathe this time", "for all this is holy and good, wear the deodorant you packed", "brush your teeth, EVERYDAY", and so on. He loves me, really he does! The one on the left rarely gets yelled at as he is still sweet. Give me a couple of years and I'll report back on that one! All in all, they are both excellent kids and I couldn't imagine my life without them..... even with the look Cole is giving! (This was the third or fourth picture I took, Kavin just can't keep his eyes open in the sun, hupid hid).
Oh yeah, also made Amelia Claire an outfit to wear to the Go Diego Go Live show tonight in Jacksonville! Her Aunt Debi bought a couple of yards of Diego fabric so I could make her something special to wear....... this is what I came up with:
It wasn't easy finding any other fabric to match nor was it easy to make it girlie. Although, I think I managed to solve both issues. First, I found a scrap of the yellow..... it has bugs all over it and matched the yellow on the Diego fabric. Then, since I didn't have enough yellow to truly make the pants I had to make a ruffle to go along the hem of the pants......... which girlied it up a bit. Added a vintage yellow button to the top and TA DA........ La finishe-dad. (Took two years of Spanish and can barely say "Taco", so bare with me please.) I think she'll like it and maybe even feel special wearing it. She's really been enjoying playing with other kids lately. Last night she got to play with her cousin Kristopher....... in his pool! Can I get a whut, whut on that one? So much fun, I wish I had a picture. Also, my niece Brookie Snookie turned 18 flippin' years old and at the "Happy birthday to you" party she got to play with more friends including Kalianne..... basically a cousin. How dang sweet is this I ask:
Oh, to be young again. And skinny. I can dream.
Have a wonderful evening....... I'm off to see Diego and his baby Jaguar. Rowr, rowr!
