Lisa tells me I'm getting too domesticated to be her long distance BFF.
My enjoyment of doing the laundry and vacuuming seems to bother her. My love to cook and bake are more up her husband's ally (okay, so she does do the cooking, too). Homeschooling, na-ah. No way. Not for her. Sewing the children's clothes? Isn't it cheaper and easier to find a good deal and just buy them something?
And now, I'm making their bedding.
I've been picking up flannel out of the remenants bin at Wal-Mart over the past 6 months intending to make some long sleeve peasant top for Kyra (I'd already made 3) but then I decided I hated the way this fabric wrinkles so easily in the wash and the dryer doesn't do a whole lot to take the wrinkles out. Instead of sewing beautiful garmants of clothing for my kids, I've been hoarding these reminants away, much to Jeremy's annoyance.
Today I decided, completely out of the blue, that I was going to make Lydia a quilt. And VOILA! I have a quilt.
It's my very first quilt (if you couldn't already tell from the simple, large square design) and I'm completely and totally winging it. And already, Kyra wants me to make one for her bed.
A princess blanket that is pink, purple and blue.
Mmm hmmm..... We'll see how this one goes before I think about starting a princess blanket. Lisa really might drop me as a long distance BFF, then.
