On Sunday I decided to make a hat for Kelli. I knit and knit all day, but some of the hand painted roving yarn is too fat and sticks out too much. I'm so picky about finished objects. I rarely love what I make. Why is that?
You must see that I look like a beehive head. Oh well.
Sometimes with sewing, I'm less picky about outcomes. My neighbor gave me two little doll quilts so I incorporated them into the polka dot plans I had for Miss Bug's doll bed. Ann had to try out the bed.
I finished one of my #100actsofsewing outfits. I had this purple plaid fabric left over from a "maybe" dress 20 plus years ago. Can you see the pants? I've always wanted to wear long dresses with pants showing at the bottom. I wore this yesterday and felt kind of conspicuous because at the coffee shop I was at with a friend people were wearing tight jeans and boots. Ha! I asked Bill what he thought and he said, "I like you better in tighter clothes 😍 but it is YOU!" So funny. I asked him if it looked like something Raggedy Ann would wear and he said, "Yes." I guess I'm kind of a chicken. Sorry the photo is taken in the bathroom (the loo as Annie Nana Go Go says) but we still don't have a full length mirror.
My niece who has four kids and a busy pastor husband uses this cookbook. I like it, too. Although, as I am trying to transform into a skinny person who EATS like a skinny person for the rest of my life, some of the recipes are a little too hearty. I guess I can adapt some of them so they are more Weight Watcher friendly. I do miss some of my junky food habits. I wish cake wasn't so high in calories. Ha! So does everyone else! Silly Pom Pom.
I'll end with our sweet furry baby! He is such a blessing. I love cats. I don't want more than one though because then I stop appreciating them (too much cat box clean up).
I had lots of fun with my family in Washington. I didn't take any outside photos because the weather was pretty dismal. I'm not used to rain and grey skies anymore. I'm thankful for sunshine.
Thank you for coming by to say hello. I missed you!
