Been out of the blogging loop for a bit. Things just got hectic all at once!
One thing that took up quite a bit of my time was making a costume for Kailani's class performance. Each student in her class is to represent an important person in history for their wax museum. Kailani chose Betsy Ross. I finally finished her costume yesterday:
I let her pick the pattern and the fabric. She really wanted a solid colored dress versus one with prints but I convinced her otherwise. We came to a bit of a compromise and she chose a "quiet" print (as she would put it). I'm relieved that the dress is finally completed! I can't see myself making another one.
By the way, did you know that the present day Betsy Ross likes to play Nintendo?
She sure does. And if it's a Pokemon game it's even better!
Good luck to her and all of her classmates! Looking forward to the performance!
