Pirate Frocks

IMG_2858IMG_2856I was reading the pattern I was supposed to use for the current play Les Miserables.  But upon reading it I did not trust the pattern.  The instructions were terrible to read/follow and the markings are missing from the pattern pieces.  If a person is not use to sewing lots of different items I would not recommend this pattern.

So instead of starting right in on the fabric for the play I wanted to test out the two sizes I would needed to make in my own fabric.  This is fabric I had on hand.  So I just used what I had as I did not want the test to cost me anything just wanted to try with what I had.  When I looked at my fabrics I know my kids like to play dress up for talk like a pirate day so I thought I would make mine look pirate esc.

knitting and a formal and Les Misérables

IMG_2829 
We had a church game night last night and my whole family went.  I am some what an anti-social person I like being in big groups but I like to be by myself and just people watch.  So I went but I took a new knitting project with me to work on I started the project right before I went.  Meaning I cast it on and did two rows.

The pattern is Victorian Neck Cozy by Wendy Johnson it is a free pattern so if you like it you can make it too.

Thank you all

I noticed this morning when I woke up that my snowy feathered cape pattern was number twenty of the "Top 20 of what is Hot Right Now" on Ravelry.  Thank you all so much I feel very loved this morning.  What a lovely way to start a day.

Update:
It got all the way up to 10  before it droped out of the top 20.

Some of you may remember last May when I was trying to get a job at a local theater company doing costuming for them.  Well I did not get the job then but they said if they got overwhelmed with a play I would be one of the first people they called to help costume contract work.  Guess what I got a call yesterday they never forgot me and want me to help costume Le Miserable so excited for this chance.  Hope I actually do get to do this.

Snowy Feather Lace Cape Finished

IMGP4675My kids had a concert choir retreat this weekend.  I got called by my middle daughter saying my youngest had to be rescued off of the mountain and that I needed to go up there.  My family is bleeders and this is what she was afraid of that my youngest was having a joint bleed and a bad one. Several of my family member have Von Willenbrand's Disease it is genetic similar to Hemophillia.  So I had to instantly go up the Canyon about an hour drive to where my kids were.  With her medicine and bandages and so on.  Since this was four hours before the retreat would be over I took my knitting project with me.  Easy to do as it was already  in my car.  I took care of my kid and then sat down for the retreat to be over and continued to monitor my youngest.

Shannon Hale an amazing person

Had a guest speaker at my children's school today Shannon Hale authoress.  She is my middle daughters favorite writer.

It was nice hearing her talk about how she struggled and then became an author.  She has spunk and personality.  It would be nice to get to know her in real life not just as a guess speaker.  From one of yesterdays posts I talked about how my daughter went to a costume dance she was dressed up like one of her characters from one of her books.
