slot cars and sewing.

And a calzone.Image

The boys unearthed the slot cars.

ImageSlot cars always end up to be both fun and frustrating for all involved.


While everyone else was otherwise occupied I finished up my Alabama Chanin inspired reverse appliqued top.  A refashioned tee dress that now has new life. I find the Chanin style fits both my aesthetic and my frugality well. I am really getting in to the groove of this hand sewing.

More makings in store for today including costumes for an end of lessons family play. We were going to do two separate plays but the boys and sister decided differently and wrote a little something. I will be general dogsbody and helper but it will be their production. A project to take up most of next week.

And a bag of seed potatoes is wagging its finger at me so I had best get on to that.

Come back tomorrow for a giveaway!
