Today was one of those "in the moment" days.
GB#3 came to play and we had a wonderful time.
The weather was perfect.
I forgot to get my camera out.
But the reward for enjoying the afternoon, by really being there, was this sunset.

I took a Craftsy class on Portuguese knitting recently.
I really enjoy the method so I ordered a real pin (actually magnetic) to use
instead of the safety pin/paperclip version I rigged up.
I am so happy with this pretty little one.

One of Little E's Barbies,
shown here in an official Barbie apron from the 1960s
and a dress my mother made for my 1960s Barbie,
might just get some new clothes soon.
The three patterns are from the mid-1980s
(note the wedding dress just to the left of Barbie's head
is styled to resemble Princess Diana's gown)
and the 29 cent booklet has a 1964 copyright.
This should be fun.

I almost forgot to take the picture. As you can see I already cut the sleeves off.
This will not become an "after" for a week or so,
but I was excited to get started.
Keep your eyes peeled.
Also, just as a heads up,
don't be alarmed if the next few posts are a few hours late.
I am traveling to a different time zone.

I was not expecting this.
I am thinking I may want my iPad tomorrow.
I opened it to add some music to it and it would not turn on.
I guess I didn't realize that even when you don't use it,
after weeks (months?) of not being charged, it will go dead.
Now I know.

So, I am on a deadline to make some new shirts for myself.
I thought I'd do the smart thing and make muslins of the patterns first
so I don't end up making shirts which don't fit well.
Today I thought I would be making the real shirts,
but I am still stuck on the fitting muslins with disappointing results.
After I decided no shirts would be attempted today,
I made something I know how to make and doesn't have to fit me to look nice.
Enter the quick zippered bag.

A while back I found a pair of Ninja Turtles pajama pants at a Goodwill store.
I knew they would be good for a remake project, so I bought them.
With GB#4's birthday coming up soon I came up with an idea.
Her dad (T-bone) was a huge Turtles fan as a child
so Turtles leggings for the birthday girl seemed like a good plan.
With the leftover fabric I fashioned little American Girl Doll leggings
for GB#4 and also for her sister GB#2, so she wouldn't feel left out.
We presented these gifts tonight
and GB#4 was amazed that she and her doll had matching leggings.
(She mentioned it more than once.)
This was definitely a plan that came together in the best way possible.
