on my plate, right now. i need to churn out two white tree skirts by monday at 4pm. they are actually going to be used as may pole skirts, and i am making them from a white sheet. nothing fancy, just something to cover the tire base of the poles we are using. but still - i have to make them, sometime!
i have a number of things cut out, ready to be stitched, like aprons and crayon wallets and notebooks for the booth, and even a top for me. i must make myself do the tree skirts first, though. i was thinking of ways to do them, like maybe cutting the circle into fourths, and using ribbons to tie the sections together? that way i could use all colors of ribbons and it would be festive and fun. i am a parent advisor to the school district's parents as teachers program, and we are hosting a 20th year celebration. i have to be in front of a crowd, something i'm not looking forward to, which is unusual for me. i usually adore a captive audience! but i'm feeling shy these days. so, i offered to decorate. i still need to tie ribbons around a bazillion little bubble bottles too.
and next week, i am participating in elsie marley's kids clothes week. this should be fun, i want to try appliqueing some onesies and tees. i always meant to make some for my other two boys, but never did. now i have an idea for a family photo shoot once the new kid arrives, with matchy shirts and stuff. anyways. never enough on my list, gotta always add more!
