A little mending

But not for my family. No, this was mending for money. Unfortunately, each time I bring her what I've finished so far, I forget to bring back one item! But I'm getting lots of practice on mending, and rethreading my serger!

Around building bunk beds for my girls' room, yes, two sets of bunk beds, I haven't done any sewing for myself or my family at all. But I did order a bunch of swatches from fabric.com that might possibly become bridesmaid dresses. (I and 3 of my girls are in a wedding this coming June.)

And it's time to start thinking about Purim costumes and YomTov dresses for Pesach and Shavuos. Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sorry, just needed to scream. I think for Purim we're going with capes and/or ponchos instead of my usualy sandwich outfits. Anything that can't be made as a cape or a poncho is out. (So far I have one order for a watermelon, and one for a strawberry cake, both of which will work just fine as ponchos.)

Final list of costumes:
Watermelon cross section
Strawberry ice cream cone
Bowl of grapes
Strawberry cookie (or cake... it was a pink felt circle with a hole for her head)
Chocolate chip cookie
Milk carton
Banana (ie yellow bag pajamas. Yes I cheated, but she was an infant!)
