Into the Woods

Well, Mama is tired, tired, tired. I do have to say I am amazed with the talent in the Youth Theatre. Every child that is cast is perfect for their role. Each show gets better and better. We still have 4 more shows. Today "critics" were at the show from New York and more will be at the Friday evening performance. Our theatre is nationally recognized! The director, costumer and music director are phenomenal...I actually enjoy their version better than the original Broadway show. I have been ushering, doing hair and makeup or watching. No sewing... boo hoo. I am also working and dealing with the new puppy. I can fall asleep standing up these days.

Here are some snap-shots of my Little Red. We are not allowed to take photos or video tape...Stephen Sondheim sold his soul to the devil. I did sneak a couple pictures at the dress rehearsal.

To Grandmothers House

I used a New Look pattern for Lauren's tote gag that I morphed into my own design partially by accident and partially by intent. I made patchwork designs and a vintage photo of Little Red along with some cute trim I've been hanging onto for 10 years. Out came that sample of wolf fur...and presto she has a tote bag fit for Little Red. This bag is lined, has three pockets and a magnet closure. I'm such a nice mom.

Puppy Love

Riley is on the mend. His tumor was benign thank goodness. He has a new baby sister Josie. Puppies are a lot of work! I'm basically hostage to the kitchen right now because it is the only room in the house without carpet. I did set up a crate in my studio but have not had much energy.
