Our weekend was full of lots of nice things.
Friday, oh it was such a good day. The girls have been doing lots of playing with wool and water lately. Soft wool, cool water, very nice for hot days. This weekend though it finally cooled down enough for some hot soapy water, the girls spent hours with their wet felting projects, they made sweet little baskets, which turned into bassinets for their little dolls. Some needle felting happened too. And I got our wool nice and organized. And I got my sewing space nice and organized. And I finally made a new ironing board cover. It only took me 3 years to choose a fabric, but once I did I made it in about an hour. Now on to one of the many other projects on my home sewing list!
But oh yeah, I didn't take any pictures at all of any of our happy creating.
I did get some other weekend photos though.
The girls and their roly-poly's. So many hours spent playing with and caring for their roly-polys!
And fort building! The girls finally spent the night sleeping in a fort without it coming crashing down at some point in the middle of the night. This is a pretty impressive fort. Chloe's side has two rooms. A bed, bookshelf, a dress, her bonnet, her dolls.
It is kind of hard to take a good picture of a fort. Especially when it takes up the entire room.
And it is really hard to take pictures of yourself! But I decided to pick up the camera anyway. Inspired by lovely ladies and a really great project, and most of all for my dearest friend Rae, who is always asking to see more of me, cause it is so hard for us to be so far apart...
So here I am. Saturday morning. 37 years old. Like everyone else I am working on acceptance (so I think I'll say nothing else...)
Also, the most wonderful thing has happened. It has been raining. Raining and raining and raining. For days. It stops in the earliest morning hours. It is damp and cool when we wake up. The chilly air is so to be appreciated after some very hot weather in past weeks. The sun comes out, there is time in the garden, time to dry a load of laundry on the line. And then the afternoon clouds come. And then later in the evening it starts raining. Very hard. And we get to listen to it. All night long. So so nice!
