Taking What You Know the Best!
OMG, I always thought the best friends in the world were only found in face-to-face encounters--but I am here to tell you this morning that I truly have some of the VERY finest, best friends via the blogosphere! If I could meet you in person, and I truly would love to do that one day, I would give each of you a big hug. How can I ever thank you for your encouragement and support. Of course my Mom's way would have been to invite you over for a cup of coffee and pull a piping hot coffee cake out of the oven. That of course would be just a tad difficult to do over the internet--however, will this do? I make a mean cup of coffee--so I've been told--and I'll be more than happy to make you a cup; but excuse me if I drink iced tea or something else--coffee and I have never gotten along real great.
After gleaning all the wonderful encouragement from y'all and my good friend in Ontario, I went back to the "basics". I went back to doing what I KNOW I can do and do well. I had been given three pair of pants to "do something with--they still fit in the waist, but they are just too short on her" and some pants that need to be hemmed. That is something I have been doing for so long, I can almost do it in my sleep. Of course since the 3 pair of pants are size 18 mos I figured I'd start with them. You would think that I would have finished all 3 pair. However, once I got started and interrupted and started and interrupted (you all know the drill) this is what actually was accomplished.
and then I added a finishing touch to look like this.Well that was all fine and well, but this young lady of 5 years is always dressed so beautifully that I just felt that she needed a matching or coordinating top to go with it. (And yes, you did read that right, these are size 18 mos. jeans for a 5 year old. I guess if you're a regular follower, you know that these are for one of my special kids at school. The difference is, her mom works at the school with us and that's why I got them to work on in the first place.) So I saw this pattern I bought for my coming granddaughter and thought it'd be just too cute on her.
