I’m trying to remember what I’ve done this week. Between the heat and my husband having some pretty bad back problem I feel like I haven’t accomplished much.
I fixed a skirt for my youngest daughter. The only problem was that the mend was visible so I added a BIG button and then threw on a few more to make it look more natural.
I also went to the fabric store to spend the gift certificate that my children gave me for Mother’s Day. That was fun! I bought fabric to make a tote for myself. I’m a little over half finished. I found the pattern here if you want to do one for yourself. Here’s the outside so far.
Mostly though I’ve just been hiding out from the heat.
So I’m thinking that I might try to do this crochet pattern using plastic bags cut into strip for “yarn”. Honestly, we must have about a half a gazillion (give or take) plastic bags, and I need to find something to do with them. Clearly though I will have to wait for cooler weather because heat and plastic don’t mix.
The next time I’m at the dollar store I’m going to get a pool noodle and become the world’s favourite mom to my children.
I love this project. I find getting children to understand the differences between province, country, city, etc. to be challenging. I think this would be a great way for them to visualize it.
We’re getting ready to welcome a baby girl at our church. I love this onesie dress.
And just in case you have a boy baby to sew for – here’s a link to dressing up a onesie for a boy.
What do you do to stay cool in the summer?
