dat me doin fais-do-do in mama's kitchen

50% french, and 50% alaskan pioneer finnish, i am entertaining my 1oo% (cajun) french mama, nellie grace, by making Making Adult Bibs today

mama watched me cut them all out yesterday

i put a shiny purple ribbon around her neck
her 'lagniappe' (lawn yop) ..... little something extra ;)

'now, you're monkeying with me she said!'

she still loves being included and having fun....
and fun, we do have!

or handi-able.....until my broken wrist heals

3 hours to just flip the material flat and cut 3 sets

who knows if i can sew?

  4. Love the bibs!

    Who Dat? has been all the rage around here. And the song Look for the Fleur de Lis by a favorite student I taught a FEW years back! I actually taught Katherine and her two brothers, and they were all great kids!

  6. Michele,
    Come and stop at my blog- I am participating in the OWOH blogging festival. I am giving away 3 bracelets- perhaps you will be a lucky one..
    Congrat's to the Saints -
    I know if it is possible for you to sew you will find a way.
    Hugs,
    Anna
