Cookie Monsters

Today I woke up alone, in a cold quiet house.

Luke had a shooting sports thing today, and I have a cold so I didn't want to get up early and go. I had a very quiet morning, very peaceful. I sewed, mended, played piano, and sang. Then I found a recipe for vanilla wafers and started making them, that's when the boys came. Luke, Christian, and Matthew came into my state of bliss with yelps, stomping, slamming doors, and Nerf guns. Peace gone. Then they started telling me about how I should make the cookies bigger, Erg. So right now I'm camped out in the den hiding and eating wonderful vanilla wafers.

Here are the promised pictures of my Kimono I sewed. I got the fabric a long time ago, cut out and started on the Obi, but never quite got around to moving on. I finely got up the gumption and finished it and the Kimono. I just love it! It fits so nice and just feels so fun to wear. Don't ask me why I made it, I couldn't tell you. But now that I have it I'm glad. The obi was very strange to make, it actually has cardboard in it.The Kimono itself wasn't to difficult, but with all the fabric and lining it was a hassle.

I really like the sleeves you could hide all sorts of dangerous things in them!

I used the Simplicity pattern 4080 and made veiw B

I finished sewing my Kimono a few days ago (I will post pictures later) So last night and today I made a Kanzashi* hairpiece to match. I think It turned out really nice. I love making Kanzashi since I got this book Kanzashi in bloom. The instructions are so easy and fun. The projects are kind of strange and unusable, but like I said the flower instructions are simple, quick, infinite, and very doable. *Kanzashi are traditional Japanese hair pieces.
