A little sewing done

I finished my block for the Sew Sweet Bee for this month.  She sent some Daysail fabric and I used fabric in my stash to match.  The first step took me forever, I could not get it right, then I watched the video.  The video helped a lot!  Unfortunately my sail fabric is sideways.  :(  I hope she likes it.

This week at school was spirit week, getting ready for hoopcoming.  Thursday was dress up as your favorite Disney character.  I dressed up as Mary Poppins.  I even had a spoonful of sugar made with sugar and glue.  I wore a wig since she was a brunette.  I wish I had had a hat though.

 Wednesday was dynamic duos, so I wore a shirt with Mickey and Minnie.

 Meanwhile at home, Cupcake has discovered the warmest spot is the fireplace mantel.

I hope you are having a great weekend!

This is why I miss being an elementary school art teacher. I could be goofy all the time and it was normal. I could act out picture books or do corny things and the kids ate it up with a spoon. Middle school was eye rolls. No audience in my sewing studio except not amused cats.

Your sailboat looks just fine!!! I love the Mary Poppins costume. That was the first movie I ever saw in a theater. I was 3 or 4 I think.

The sailboat is fine. It just got caught in a strong wind, as sail boats sometimes do. Cute costumes!
