I’ve been sewing for practically three days straight and I have almost nothing to show for it. I have become well acquainted with my seam ripper and it has been sad. Somehow, Larkspur’s birthday dress did get finished. I am not going to dwell on the hours I spent making it and the fact that really, it’s just a plain boring dress, and not a pattern I would ever sew again. Lark chose the fabric and she is mostly happy with the dress. I am not surprising her with it as she made it clear that her birthday dress is not to be one of her presents, but what she wears while opening presents. The second sewing project that has been occupying me is more complicated, and won’t be ready for Lark’s birthday tomorrow. She doesn’t mind waiting.
A fox visited our compost bins today making me wish once again that I owned a good zoom lens. We’ll just have to make do with the couple of photos I took through the window and then cropped. Our neighbor claims he saw a baby fox on the property adjacent ours recently. Where are your babies mama? We want to meet them.
Back to the sewing machine. Bleh.
p.s. Today Beatrix chose red marker to decorate her face. Some of the photos I took of her are really creepy looking. I won’t burden you with them.
