I feel like Marilla when Mathew bought 20 lbs of brown sugar... That's what got us started on this little project in the first place. Eva and Bekah fell in love with Anne's "plain and practical" dresses. (If you are unfamiliar with Anne of Green Gables... well, that's just sad.) So I went fabric shopping and found a great deal at Hobby Lobby. I love that place- but I don't "get" all the doodads. A gazillion things to clutter up your coffee table. No thanks. But the fabric... yummo! And you won't believe what I paid for this quiltshop-quality fabric. 2 bucks a yard!! 6 yards makes two very generously full skirted dresses. And 4 yards will make 2 pinafores- the girls insisted. So I have 6 dresses made- all but the button holes and buttons and I am working on 2 more. But... I ran into a hitch. The worst cold of the decade. Very bad timing as I am really wanting to sew. OK, when do I not want to sew? But between the drip-drip-drip and the hack-hack-hack, it rather takes the bloom off the rose and sewing is a real trial. Oh, I perservered, yesterday, and got some done, but today... I am counting the minutes til nap time(42 minutes.) Then two hours of quiet bliss. Well, as blissful as the snotty nose and sore throat and congested lungs will allow.
