Ok, this post is on the personal side, but I wanted to share it for those who sew! Sorry, it isn’t about the movie, Sense and Sensibility (the old version), although we did like that too. It is raining here today and since we are not gardening, my girls wanted to sew. They have already said a number of times, “Mommy, I love to sew.”
One daughter wanted to work on new skirts, so she’s been sewing those up. My other daughter wanted to make pinafores. What is a pinafore, some might ask, it is what Laura and Mary wore over their dresses, like an apron, in Little House in the Prairie (see photo below of Laura and Carrie’s). Our daughters like these to protect their clothing while doing chores, as painting smocks and just because they have loved that era since they were toddlers.
We have about 4-6 pinafores already cut out and scattered over the room. I am making a ruffle for the bottom to add length and because my all of my daughters want ruffles on their new pinafores.
Our oldest is working on Christmas gifts, if you can believe that. She wants to make her little brother and sister new patchwork quilts since theirs are getting worn out.
So what do you all do on rainy days?
