Some of today was spent getting ready for a pirate party which is happening tomorrow for K's 7th birthday- can you believe she turned 7 this week? The last weekend as a 6 year old resulted in a wobbly tooth coming out after a minor trampoline accident and so it was decided a pirate party would be fitting.
A special request from both A and K was a batch of afghans (not sure how these fit into the theme) and of course a bit of after school testing was mandatory. So tonight I will need to make about 11 or so eye patches (luckily, they are pretty simple- just some black wool felt and elastic).
I made her the winter skirt for one of her birthday presents- I used a double-elastic waist and dark green corduroy with a bit of antique lace sewn around the hem.
I just realised that I've been blogging almost all of K's life- I think I started when she was 1 or 2. Crazy! Although this means she is quite a good poser for photographs, and she's not afraid to show her gappy teeth.
Happy weekend to you!
