ARRG


I know, I've been using my twitter to give you random tidbits of information instead of really blogging, my bad. Actually life has been pretty uneventful, but since my poll ended today, I thought I'd give you a little costume update.

The pirate costume won, and since I was kind of leaning that way anyways, I started working on it. Here's the pattern I'm using to make it, but the fabric is different colors. We're going with a blue, green, brown, gold stripe for the skirt and head scarf, a green sash and a brown cord vest w/ light brown sleeves and collar. I've already finished the skirt, sash, scarf, and I'm half way through the top, but my machine is acting up. I'm not too worried though, I've got some time to finish it.

Who knew I'd be that mom that makes my kids costumes from scratch. Before I could barely sew in a straight line....

I know I was seriously surprised when you told me, last year, that you were sewing dresses for Sariah and PJs for Henry. You're doing really well. I'm impressed with how far you've come, and how quickly you've gotten there.

Wow! I'm impressed. I didn't even see the poll but I would've voted fairy anyway. She'll be such a cute pirate. Way to go on all the sewing.

I saw that pirate pattern at Walmart the other day and thought of Sariah!

She will be a great pirate! JT is going to be a red dragon, thanks to Old Navy. That is so cool that you can sew. You may have to teach me a few things when you come to visit.

Sounds fun! Good luck with the sewing (and the machine). I'll be waiting to see a picture of Sariah in her pirate costume.

That will be so cute!!! You better post a picture of her in it when your done!! :)
- I found out you had a blog from Steffi's blog. You have such a fun family! I'm glad you're doing so well! Now I'm on a quest to see who else has a blog...

Haha, too cute. And I still can't sew in a straight line! Ba! If your machine is still acting up and you want to borrow my mine, let me know. Good luck and kudos to you, Marin!
