Technically, I guess today she should become Eyo (the Eight-Year-Old). But for the sake of continuity, not to mention because Tyo will become the Eleven-Year-Old in another month, I’m going to stick with the nicknames as is.
Relatively little has been cleaned up from the birthdays (to my husband’s dismay), but sewing has happened! Tyo put the final touches on Syo’s present and we wrapped it up.
The kids have also been stitching madly away at these:
They are almost done. Whew! It would’ve been so much simpler to do them all on my own. But that would be defeating the point, etc. etc. Syo decided she wanted the blue and pink flannel fabric (top left) for the outside of hers; it’s lining the others.
What, Syo modelling her dress? Well, if you insist!
The fringe along the bottom is a length that appeared in one of the Value Village baggies. I stitched it on for Tyo… it was just less of a headache that way.
I am disappointed to report that she is less than thrilled with the dress. The reason? “It’s not tight enough. Tight is cute.”
Ah, yes. I had forgotten that.
Erm, she may have picked up that perception from me. Ooops.
Anyway, I think the dress is adorable.
In Me-Made June news:
Yup. Still lounging amid the remnants of the kids’ birthday party on the weekend.
I was (perhaps overly) excited about the weather forecast today and dressed for SUMMER. Of course, I spent most of the day in the chilly indoors freezing my legs off. My bad.
