For a friend’s birthday, Mabel made a set of her Mix ‘n’ Match magnets and we put them in an envelope with a Velcro closure. I made some hair bows too.
Remember the yellow gingham silk dress from a couple of posts back whose lining I had re-hemmed? The next morning Rose had been wearing it for about ten minutes when she tripped on the skirt and tore a very wide rip about six inches up from the hem. The tear is in the skirt itself, not the lining, and is at least twenty-five inches long. I might be able to cover it with a ribbon after I repair it, but for now it’s back in the mending closet until Rose is a little taller. Mabel did wear it when it was as long on her as it is on Rose now, but I just don’t feel like taking any more chances on that dress for a while.
I almost took a picture of the tear but I didn’t.
