Abby's new "dress"
Due to the snow I had three and a half days off of school last week. It was a wonderful impromptu vacation with the family. Both Jeffrey and I got some work done, and we all got lots of playing and cuddle time! It was pretty much awesome.
I also took a break from making things for other people to make something for Abigail. Jeffrey fell in love with the idea of a pinafore. This is basically an apron that looks like a dress; it really is pretty cute. So Wednesday night I went to work on it. I haven't made too many pieces of clothing, so every one is a new adventure. This pattern was fairly easy to follow, and I got to make my first attempt at gathering. I think it turned out pretty well. The only problem is that now Jeffrey wants five more for her.
Abigail loves her "beautiful dress." Apparently it is a perfect compliment to her clompy shoes coming down the hallway.
