My husband travels a lot on business. A lot. He is away most weeks, sometimes just overnight sometimes for the whole week. He was in Chicago last week. So far away. The children are very use to him being away but this week the two youngest were more than a little emotional. Anyway he came home Saturday bearing gifts including an American Girl for Missy. Her little face was a picture when he presented it to her and the doll has been by her side ever since.
I showed her the Tea Party pattern in Little Things to Sew and asked her if she would like me to make her doll some dresses, “Yes please” was the answer and she immediately skipped off to the fabric cupboard. I found it fascinating the fabrics she chose. All floral, all very pretty, all nothing that I expected her to choose.
In other news the cat decided to take over the role of the man of the house and brought me 4 rodents. 3 dead, 1 alive, all into the house….nice.
