I believe I left off last time as I was leaving for camp. I made my daughter a few pairs of elastic-waisted shorts, with promises of "we'll take pictures in camp". Right! This is the only shot I managed.
My niece was getting married the week-end after we got home. We had a shower to host. I made an apron and a hot pad that masquerades as a cherry pie. (Of course, I was making these the night before the shower!)
I made the wedding cake.
And then there was the issue of what my daughter was going to wear to the wedding, since nothing that she brought with her was even remotely a possibility. Can't look worse than the cousins from Montreal, now can we? I remembered that I had a dress hanging in the basement that had been sewn for a class sample (make your own prom dress, or some such thing). I was going to give it away, just as soon as I stripped off the antique jet beads. Good thing that didn't happen. I took in the side seams, added straps (my daughter will not wear strapless), which also required stripping beads then adding them back and was done three hours before the wedding. (Not bad?!) And again - too busy with the cake and all, and no picture was taken with my daughter looking gorgeous. She was kind enough to pop the dress on the day she was leaving, so the overall look is less than spectacular.
