hemming and hawing
no crafting yesterday, just some hemming for david. eliot and collette supplied the hawing...
i wonder if they got their silly faces from watching mom sew. hmmm... a very definite possibility. ok, so you all are probably going to kick me on this one, but i have been thinking about two big things on the sewing front: halloween and christmas. what? shut yo mouth. its true! there is halloween candy in the store for pete's sake (ha! i only know one pete)! is this happening all over the country?? i think it must be. so lets see, according to mass consumerism the year breaks down like this:
st patricks day
back to school
in a perpetual cycle i guess. so of course it makes sense that we skip straight to halloween in august. and if i plan to stick to my guns from last halloween, then i should be working on this right away. the first thing that popped into my head was two peas and a pod. i like the family theme thing, which is funny because i dont go for themes anywhere else, no matchy matchy here. but i dont think i can get eliot to go along with the whole pod thing, and then what am i going to do with two girls dressed like peas? not much really. the real task at hand is getting eliot to commit to something so i can get going. and yes, you can picture me hassling him night and day for the next few weeks and yes i will try my best to dissuade all the transformer/robot/spaceman themes that are sure to crop up. bad mommy? maybe. i just had a brilliant thought that might fly, maybe they can all be legos?? everyone loves legos at our house, heck even arlo uses them for teething purposes. ok, stop blogging hannah and start planting lego seeds in eliots ear...
