Abby's hair is at an awkward length now, so pigtails are the best way to go. BUT most of the bows I have are singletons. Plus, some of them are overwhelming on her little pigtails. So I made a set of mini bows to see how they would look. I think they'll be cute.
I haven't glued them to the clips yet. I'll do that tomorrow.
I have also been making a little outfit for my great-neice Zanissa. How can I not spoil her? She's named after me, for Pete's sakes! Great Aunt Mary hand-tatted some little butterflies that I've been saving for a special project. I didn't want to squander them on just anything.
Here's what I have so far:
I'm going to have to reposition the butterfly and add a couple details. I love the headband though. I may have to do one for Abby. I'm also nearly finished with a little white tutu for Z. Hopefully they'll at least put her in it long enough to get a pic for me!
And I made cinnamon pie crust tonight. Josh has been begging for it for a while. I remember my Mom baking pies around the holidays. She always made her own pie crust- which is a talent I did not inherit. I can make a lot of things, but a pie crust? Nope.
But when she made pie crust, she always kept the edge pieces, buttered them, sprinkled with cinnamon & sugar and baked them until they were crispy. A great treat I always associate with chilly winter nights. I cheat and buy pre-fab pie crusts, but I hope the memories I make with my boys are just as sweet.
