Well I managed to sew on Emily’s two Cubbies patches this weekend. I thought I did a pretty good job considering my lack of experience. All I need to do is go back and iron them down. The Jumper patch on the right side of the picture (left side of the vest) is a little too high, but I can live with it I think. That’s all well and good … except that Emily got an Ern E. Elephant patch at Cubbies last night. Just when I get caught up, I get one more thing to do!
I also put together some goody bags for Emily’s preschool class party. They were filled with a little notebook, a Crayola Pip Squeaks marker, a couple sheets of stickers, and some candy. I think they turned out really cute. The biggest problem is that I am inept at tying any kind of bows. These were actually awful looking up close … and when I have to tie a bow on the back of Emily’s dress, it always turns out awful as well. My mom and my mother-in-law have both tried to show me, but I can. not. do. it. Someone, please take a moment and enlighten me. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. (Sorry about the rambling … I’m very far away from my original topic at this point!)
