My hives bothered me all night so today I am taking a day off and just sewing and cooking. I spent the early morning cutting out the over dress. This week I had worked on the under dress for both Gina and Dhyana. That is done in thin unbleached cotton and takes yards of material but I think they have come out good. We’ll see when the girls try them on. Now the over dresses are made of a heavier material and are more colorful. There are three different over garments that change the outfits, one looks like a lady in waiting, one a serving wench and one more like a merchant’s wife. There is also a large petty coat which can be used as a skirt, a petty coat or an over skirt to change the whole look of any of the outfits and can be used with or with out the dress. This makes it so when the girls have a friend in to play they can each make an outfit to wear all by mixing and matching pieces.
After breakfast I made two loaves of bread and then went back to my cutting out. Stopped now to get dinner so must pick the beets and greens. Norman got the fishing poles fixed and in good working order so we can take the kids fishing when they come up in July. Then he measured the attic area so he can get some wall board and finish that area. My sewing room is on the other side of the loft and he finished that several years ago. Now he is out tiring up the blueberries. They are so heaving with berries he is afraid they will break the branches or he will hit them with the lawn mower when he gets that fixed and ttys mowing the lawn again. I have to go now and pick the beets so have a good day and do drop me a line. OH, by the way- Rosemary – Norman wants to know which generation you are? I could not tell him for sure if you are our age – in your 80’s or our daughter’s age- about 60 or our grand children’s ages in your 40’s – I am just too lazy to look it up in the genealogy. Have a great day.
