Getting Ready...

I'm going to have to side with Clare in her beliefs that the full moon was to blame for all the crazy people (Karenin and Anja) around here yesterday. Today they were both delightful! Anja woke up so incredibly happy and pretty much stayed that way all day. Also... and I can't believe I'm going to jinx myself by saying this out loud... but last night she slept for two four-hour stretches and tonight she seems to be on track to do the same!!! I can hardly believe it! O Happy Day!
I spent much of my day up at my mom's house making this:
It's a chemise for Anja to wear to the Feast of the Hunter's Moon, not this weekend, but the next. I'm pretty proud of myself for making without a pattern in one afternoon. Of course, it did take me two tries and giving up entirely on the first and harder one... but I think this is perfect for her. Mrs. Schap gave me some super cute green stripey fabric from which I'll make a skirt for her tomorrow or the next day. That should be an easier job. I am so pleased with how this turned out though!
I'm so glad the mornings are cool. I love fall. I driving with my windows down and getting coffee and going for walks wearing sweaters and jeans.
But nothing else is really new. My parents fed me again, which is always nice, and tomorrow I'll be stranded at home all morning waiting for the Vectren man to show up and replace our meter. Kind of annoying, but at least it isn't costing us anything, and he'll check out our furnace too, which is nice.

That looks so long. She must be getting pretty big. Have a great time at the feast. I would love some PU cider...that's one of the things I remember most about fall in Ind.

I tried to make Pebbles and Bam Bam outfits one year (they were 2 I think). I think that was the last time I sewed for my kids.

I can't wait to see the final product modeled on Anja! It looks SO CUTE!
