This week has been a busy one at our house. Between nursing a sick kiddo and running ’round like mad to gather supplies for his stinkin’ costume, there’s been zero time for quilting. Just one more week and my Mom and I will be at a quilt retreat…hang on, QuiltnMama!
Here’s the (albino) coonskin cap and fringed shirt I managed to come up with…
I think they both turned out fairly well, all things considered.
Here’s my boy, I mean, Davy…I hope the real Davy didn’t look like such a dork. Bad mother!
The moccasins go pretty well with the whole ensemble, although he kept calling them Grandpa shoes. Sorry, kid, but you can’t beat Walmart clearance prices when you’re in a pinch, okay!? That bandolier looking thing across his middle is a pouch…I’m assuming Davy carried ‘essentials’ in his. And because we must be all non-violent, he couldn’t carry a toy rifle. Heaven forbid we be authentic if it involves a firearm!
My mother cautioned me that someone at the school is bound to find out that I sew so I lectured the kids and they now know to say Mom doesn’t sew, she quilts. I’m off to clean up my sewing area and start packing for retreat. If you don’t hear from me again, it’s because I’m buried under a pile of fallen fabric.
I’m linking up to these nice folks…hop on over to see what other crafty types are up to this week!
Happy quilting, y’all!
