I'm super lame. Day 3 was spent working on the ruffle dresses. I was up until 1 a.m. working on them. But sadly, I didn't measure well to begin with. I'm not using a pattern, and I'm not even clear on the process to arrive at the finished product. So I made them too small and must now order more fabric. I do have hope that they'll turn out well in the end, but getting to that point might be a long haul.
There's a tiered pink satin skirt, with a neutral (white & beige) chiffon ruffle skirt over that, and a beige, pink, gray chiffon ruffle skirt on top. The bodice will be gray-- Chick's will be drop waisted, and Monkey's will be empire waisted. Little cap sleeves, and probably some chiffon ruffle flowery-thing up near the neckline. Possibly a sash.
Anyhow, KCWC day 4 was spent putzing around. I got out a project that I came up with a year or so ago, but had stashed away before actually doing it. It's another matchy-match thing for the girls, but won't be completely matching because Monkey has grown in the past year, so I had to alter my plan for hers. Sewing time for yesterday and today have been ineffective cutting out & planning days. I have yet to actually start sewing it. I've just been tired....
HH, on the other hand, has been productive. The "fuzzy wall" that was stripped naked over a year ago (!) is finally making progress. My sister L came to help me mud it last week, and HH has sanded it and put a second coat on. I'm starting to feel hopeful that it'll be a normal wall someday!! wahoo!
He also put in a new doorbell & porch light! Yay HH! (I bought them...can I say Yay Me?).
Other than that, I dehydrated a bunch of bananas this week. basta.
