Good morning! Hannah made Seth some joggers yesterday.
She is showing me things that I never dreamed my sewing machine could do.
She used a pattern on one of her favorite online sources: Patterns for Pirates.
This pattern is called Baby Bear Joggers and she sewed it using a nice thick knit for the fabric.
Seth was so full of energy all afternoon wearing his new pants that it made Hannah laugh and say, “Well, at least we know he has a full range of motion in them!”
He wore them to bed and then wore them to school this morning.
Yesterday was also homemade noodles day.
We went for two walks.
We received a box full of good things as a surprise from Hannah’s mom; homemade jewelry, cookies, candy, and some gingerbread tea which we enjoyed before bed last night.
so far, these cookies are my favorite
THE ULTIMATE COMFORT FOOD; homemade chicken and broth with noodles, served over homemade mashed potatoes.
Hannah began making a dress for Grace, a beautiful red and cream lace dress; in which Grace will be sure to look like a Valentine in February.
When Hannah was done sewing for the day, she neatly covered everything up with a tablecloth so the cats wouldn’t eat thread or shred the patterns.
Deep down inside, Sherlock really believes she has thoughtfully made him a bed.
This morning is quiet; the children have gone to school and Hannah is getting dressed while I blog, drink tea, and look out the window with my cat.
