Work in Progress Wednesday

The gas company is here right now digging holes in our yard. We noticed a faint smell of gas next to the meter, which is next to our hose spigot. A guy from the gas company came out to check it and fix it, but the entire meter fell off, so now it's turned into a Big Deal. But, hey, it's all outside the house, so it's not our responsibility financially; plus it's too hot to want to heat anything up anyway, so it's okay that the gas is turned off for a while.

In the meantime, Thalia has most of the squares crocheted for her baby blanket to donate to Cardinal Glennon via Newborns in Need. Now she needs to sew them all together.



And I'm working on altering a bodice for Thalia using the tips in this cool book I found in the library.



And Annabeth has been busy with flower fairies:

Looks like you are having a fun summer! Love the baby blanket project -- so sweet. Is Annabeth using the Wee Folk book to make her little people? I tried to go there once, but I think my fingers are too big and clumsy for all that intricate work!

Yes, she's using Salley Mavor's Felt Wee Folk. I painted a bunch of heads and purchased wool felt and pipe cleaners ages ago, and never used them. So she's using up all of the materials that have been languishing in a box for years and years.

Ten year olds have unlimited spare time to work on these things and get all those tiny bits just right.
