What have you been up to? The past week has involved much running around to choir concerts, soccer presentations and birthday parties. I have made Happy Birthdays and hearts to go to Pasadena in the US, a purple wedding garland to go to France and a pretty girl’s name going just down the road.
I found cute things for dress-ups in Op shops for a book parade tomorrow. We will be Alice, The Cat in the Hat and Thor. I made an apron for ‘Alice’ because I could not find one – out of a cloth napkin. We stuffed a knee-high stocking for The Cat’s tail. I am dressing up as Laura Ingalls Wilder. Mostly because I found a $6 dress, but also because I completely loved that show as a child. Don’t tell anyone but I used to shed a tear as she ran over that grassy hill. I wanted to sit next to Laura in class. I have put my hand up to read The Jabberwocky to year2/3H tomorrow, dressed as Laura. Can’t wait.
PS. That cheeky little guy has found his way into the Vintage Shop.
