What a GREAT weekend!!
I just finished this apron for The Boy. I started it at around 1:30pm today after he went down for a nap. He is really into fish and I had this fabric that I had bought to make him a little bag but instead used it for the apron. I made a pattern out of 4 sheets of paper I taped together and used one of his shirts as a guide for size. It came out pretty darn good!! I can't wait to try it on him tomorrow. I took pictures during the making of but it's too late to whip out a tutorial... I'll try to get one together and post or at least get the pictures up for a visual tutorial.
Friday The Boy helped me make pizza and kept trying to eat the flour and dough, then ate handfuls of tomato sauce and cheese instead of putting it on the pizza. Hence the need for an apron - wish I had had my camera handy, he was too cute.
Saturday night we started our Neighborhood Dinner Series night by having our neighbors across the street over for dinner. We had a great time, the company was great, the food was delicious and I got to use my favorite tablecloth, dishes, etc. which always makes me happy. Wish I had taken pictures, where is that camera?? We hope to have a different family over once a month so we can get to know everyone better. Hmmm... who is next...
Sunday morning started late with The Boy sleeping in til 730am. WoooHooo!!! Sweetboy made the best biscuits I've ever eaten for breakfast. We played around all morning, then we had fun with finger paints.
Then it was time to play outside. "Eyes! Eyes!!" he says, so we go get his sunglasses.
The Boy went down for his nap and I started the apron. Now granted I just finished it around 1030pm but there were a lot of interuptions along the way including a hilarious bathtime
and listening to two new CDs (You Are My Flower and You Are My Sunshine) before bedtime from Elizabeth Mitchell & Daniel Littleton.
She has such a sweet, folksy voice - her and her partner sing wondeful duets and the lovely little songs... you must go listen to the samples and read about all of the songs. I've been listening to the music on my own to learn the words and the songs are just so sweet and charming. I particularly like Ladybug Picnic, Lovers Lane and another that I can't remember the name.
We also had so many fresh flowers in the house this weekend. I'm sure it contributed to the great mood :) Aren't those peonies amazing? Our neighbors brought them over Saturday. They smell heavenly.
Have a great week everyone!
