Sunday marked the height of creativity by the girls of the OCD household. So many creations, it was a frenzy over here!
First, The Middle Child showed me the bed she made for her doll:
Yes, that is a Corona box. Lucky we have a few of those on hand! Next, Last But Not Last decided Kitty, too, needed a bed. Of course matching paper pillows and quilts were required.
Next, it was almost time for lunch, so why not play with our food and give the mangos a makeover?
The girls then discovers my scrap bin and found some pieces of minky and got to work hand stitching pillows for their favorite toys.
Next, a sweet note for mom using some more minky, cut into a heart shape.....
.....and another, left for me to discover next to a current knitting project.
I love my sweet girls!
As for me, I was busy too.....
They are more than meets the eye, but you will have to wait a bit for a full reveal and the story behind those! In the meantime, if you are hankering to try a framed purse (which you SHOULD!! So fun!), don't forget I have an old step by step tutorial on how to do so over at Moda Bakeshop to see you through.
Also continuing to happily clickity clack along on Downton Abbey and my Downton Sweater.
My birthday came and went on the weekend, which I have been using as an excuse for several weeks now to do a lot of this:
You see, you NEED lots of pretty fabric and wool when the weather looks like this:
Lastly, I have a funny story to tell you (and that should get us girlfriends all caught up!). On Friday, I was at the annual Manitoba Dental Association conference, and, well, truth be told, hiding in the back row of the lecture theatre, knitting on the sly (I was listening, too, I swear!). Suddenly, my ball of yarn decided to jump out of my purse and rollllllll about three rows down before coming to a stop against the leg of a table!
(can you see it over there on the right??)
Luckily, it went unnoticed (I think), as I tried in vain to get it back, worrying if I pulled to hard on the string it would only come loose and continue to roll down until it landed at the lecturer's feet. I made it to the end of the lecture (the guy talked for THREE STRAIGHT HOURS, for pity's sake) and let most people leave before I went about the embarrassing business if crawling under tables to relieve it. Yes, my life resembles a sitcom.
Hope you have a great week! I am wearing my herringbone cowl today to keep nice and toasty warm :)
