Last weekend I was quite busy.
I made my first ever dress for June.
I followed the pillowcase dress pattern and this pattern by ManiMina. I couldn't stick to the ManiMina pattern because I'm not sure I cut the arm holes right and it was obvious that if I tried to create a hem for the elastic gathering to cinch the neck that there wouldn't be enough room for June's arms. So, this really ended up being my own creation. June wore it all day until she had a potty training accident in it, so I count that as a success. I had really wanted to make June a dress in time for Easter but ran into so many problems with it. Adam gave me some hours alone so I could finish this dress and I was (and am still) so thankful.
I made a yummy pasta following a Nigella recipe. Here is the recipe photo and a photo of how mine turned out.
June and I made biscuits (which were for strawberry shortcake - you know it is good when no pictures get taken.)
Already this weekend is different, less productive somehow, but nice and relaxing. I think I needed the relaxation time.
I still don't know what to cook for dinner this week. Ideas?
