52 in 1: WEEK 38 - ruffles & Wards

Sneaking this post in in the final moments of the week, since we've been a tad busy this weekend... oh just spending a glorious few days with the visiting Wards AKA our new friends for life.  Ashley and I had high hopes and dreams to craft and sew all weekend.  Ha.  Ha.  We "settled" on making ruffled shirts for the girls and ruffled headbands for us.  Then, we decided the shirts were going to take more than 5 minutes so we decided to at least make the headbands.  What could go wrong?  A quick project resulting in pretty new accessories couldn't be messed up.  Right?  Ha.

We made some tea and team Ashley went to work.

Annnnd, while doing literally the first stitch for the ruffle on my machine, the sewing machine decided to quit.  Still don't know what's wrong with it, but we decided to press on and hand stitch the ruffles.  More time consuming, but not super hard.

My ruffles.  Not how I really envisioned, but hey.


The aftermath.

We had a fun, fun weekend with this family and can't wait for more time together.  A complete recap is in the works... but for now, some pics from today's children's museum trip. 

 Sweet family.

We know how to get to Sesame Street.

Love this girl.  Sad for them to leave tomorrow.  Happy that they were looking at houses for sale in the area while I drooled napped on the couch this afternoon.
