Eggs and Dresses

Finished the eggs this morning.
A little ric-rac,
a little lace,
a little braid,
antique it all with some stamp pad ink,
of course,
a little glitter
and they are done.
Not sure if the pine cones
go with Easter,
but for now
they are there.

And...
I guess I am back on the dress kick.
We are having another sewing night/weekend at our church,
to make these little dresses,
that will then be taken to Haiti
in June.
I thought I better refresh my memory of how to make them.
I could not believe two years had gone by since we had made them.
For directions


I am the DD again today.
Today's project:
Strip all beds completely.
Load all laundry in the mothership.
(that is what we call my MIL's car)
Raid my change stash,
or JWS's change stash.
(which incidentally, Gracelyn found and now calls it her secret agent money
that she loads her pockets with everytime she is here)
Gather the laundry soap
and a book
and after dropping my MIL at dialysis
I will be heading to the laundromat
to wash everything.
Brilliant use of time, if I do say so myself.

Tonight Wyatt arrives for a sleepover at Grandma's house.
So rare that I get him,
I can't wait!

Well Cathy, sounds like you have a busy day ahead of you. I love your egg display. Those dresses are so cute. Going to make sure Holly see's them and the directions. Enjoy your evening with the grandson. Darbee Rae STILL won't stay the night with me.
