Too tired to post again

I did it again. I waited until I was too tired to post. It's good thing that I'm not getting paid to meet deadlines!

Daughter Joanne has AT&T cell phone service, which doesn't work well at our house. She posted pictures on Friday that didn't show up until this morning!

Sewing the Ursula tentacles was quite a challenge because of the bulk and the elastic.

It really did take both of us to get the tentacles sewn on! I didn't think to take pictures yesterday, but Carol and I managed to make lace gloves (black on top, purple on the bottom) so that her arms are two of the tentacles. They look really cool! I will take pictures of Carol in her full costume. It's hard to believe that the final performance will be two weeks from today!

Sophia gets very excited when Papa gets home from work, because she gets to go outside and help him with yard work and gardening. Last night she got to ride on the lawn mower just before bedtime!

Today will be perfect weather for me, sunny with a high of 77°. The last two days have been miserable with high humidity and temps in the mid 90s... not my kind of weather! However, Sophia loved it! She spent most of the day in her puddle pool, and she didn't mind the cold water from the hose.

Yes, I did finish last week's Spinning Wheel glass mat (Tatting with Visual Patterns by Mary Konior). Have I mentioned that I love hand-dyed thread? I'm not normally a fan of pink, but I do love this Raspberry Ripple with Real Vanilla from Tatskool!

    And that raspberry ripple with real vanilla has got me raiding my freezer for ice-cream ! Can't have enough in this lousy weather ;-P

  3. How fun to see you and daughter sewing together. Her costume is amazing. Sophia is so adorable. How fun to putter in the garden with her Grandpa. Pretty in Pink spinning wheel.
