I always come up with wonderful ideas. Unfortunately, I frequently don't have them until the day before they are due! Case in point--Lizzie had her skating achievement day yesterday. In addition to a solo, she skated in two group skates. She wore one of her regular little skating dresses for the solo. The first group skate was to the song "We Go Together" from Grease. I decided on SATURDAY that it would be a great idea to make Lizzie a poodle skirt for her costume. I stayed up late sewing and got it done.
Of course, she looked great, as you can see from above.
The costume for her second skate was easier. Just an "old-fashioned" type dress for Chim Chimmeny from Mary Poppins. We just went to Value Village and found a dress that fit for $5.00. It is an April Cornell dress and quite pretty, so she'll wear it during the spring and summer. Not bad for 5 bucks!
I constantly keep doing these things to myself. Because I spent so much time sewing on Saturday, I had to stay up last night finishing a school assignment today.
Please tell me I'm not the only one who does this?
