I've been hearing about pillowcase dresses lately and decided that I wanted to make one. I bought the cutest pillowcase and just happened to have ribbon that matched. I was going to make it last night, but my iron was absolutely DEAD when I plugged it in. This morning a friend lent me one, so I was off and running. The other issue was that my sewing machine has been tricky lately, so I had to mess around with it for about 20 minutes or so before I could begin. Once I got going, it was done in no time flat. Here's how it turned out:
At this time of night, Inmate #7 is in bed, so I'll take a photo of her in it tomorrow so you can see her in it.
I have to confess, I stayed in my pajamas until about 5:30 this evening. Can you believe it? I NEVER do this, but when the kids get up before I do, I have a really hard time getting my act together. This morning, it was Inmate #6 with a bad dream.
The Warden had signed us up to feed the missionaries this evening. Just to illustrate my ditziness lately, because of all the things we had going on tonight, we offered to take dinner to them. On our way, I realized that I had forgotten one of the main ingredients that goes in the main dish. Still edible and yummy, but what was I thinking?
We hung out with these friends for only about 45 minutes because we had 25 teenagers heading to our house at 6pm.
After dropping them off, I went to buy diapers--emergency.
Now, Inmates #3-7 are in bed, and the Warden and I are sitting in the front room waiting for the dance to be over--11pm. We'll bring the kids back to our house for them to wait for their parents to get them.
Bed is going to feel so good tonight!
