I had all sorts of grandiose ideas about this month's napping pillow. A tulle ruffle with satin trim, lots of hand applied sequins, etc. I got 2 lengths of the sequins applied to the witch hats while having to get up every 30 seconds to return Jack to his bed before I gave up on that idea and just sewed a square and stuffed a pillow into it. LOL
I debated not taking a photo of it, but this is my "Misadventures" blog, and there is a reason I chose that name! So, there you have it. The name of that fabric is "Pumpkin Party," and that made me laugh. I guess there will be a whole month of Pumpkin Parties around here.
I have decided that Jack will return to being an angel (cough, cough) if he has plenty of things to do during the day, so I have scheduled us to be as busy as a preschool around here. We are working on that Hooked on Phonics stuff (which is really helping his letter recognition) and doing loads of art "projiks". Today we did leaf rubbings.
I suspect this plan of mine is just another grandiose idea, however. Jack can walk 2 miles to the bookstore and still not take a nap, so this is likely to only make *me* be in severe need of a long nap. At least I will have a cute pillow to lay down with. LOL
At some point I bought this bag at a garage sale. It's a cute patchwork bag, but the shoulder fabric in one spot is almost nearly gone. I figured I could just replace that piece, but, let's be honest, I am just going to carry it as is. It will only be filled with fruit snacks and hot wheels and Thomas trains and rocks and sweet gum balls (from trees, not chewing gum) and grass flowers anyway, right? No need for grandiose ideas there.
And a thrifted cardboard church (or "castle" if you are Jack). Once again, I am filled with grandiose ideas about fixing it up and making it more special and so forth. Will I ever get to it? Who knows! At this point I would be happy to just get rid of the ants that have invaded the kitchen or to get the mailman to bring our mail to our house instead of the neighbor or to just figure out what to make for dinner!*
Happy Tuesday everyone!
*I had other grandiose ideas about using those Everyday Food magazines to make dinner this month. I got the subscription for free, and I have to say that after having made 5 or so recipes from it I am glad it was free. I really do not like that food and neither do Jack and Dave. I will be sticking to Rachel Ray, thankyouverymuchMarthaStewart.
