Jack has been enjoying some one-on-one time with my parents in Atlanta this week, and with things a little less hectic around here, I had some time this afternoon to complete a little project I've had in mind- sew pillowcase dresses from this Spongebob fabric.
Lucy's like me in that she loves to watch tv, and one of her current favs is Spongebob Squarepants. (One show I actually don't mind watching with her sometimes; that and Good Luck Charlie - I kind of like that show :) Anyhow, neat story behind the Spongebob fabric I had stacked among all my fabric remnants: my first year teaching, way back in 2004, Spongebob was a new tv show and was all the rave with kids. So, I set up my first classroom with a spongebob theme. I had this fabric covering several bulletin boards as well as no fewer than two dozen stuffed animal sponge bobs :). I think I used this fabric in the classroom for about three years before I retired it. So, it's likely been in the storage bin since 2007. But, now it's being put to very good use!
"Audrey, this is how you pose...Pose!" :)
Cutest dialogue to date between these two while they were watching me as I began to sew their dresses:
Audrey: "Ms. Kelly, where did you learn to do that?!"
Me: "I took a sewing class and learned how."
Audrey: "Oh...Well I want to take a sewing class."
Me: "You should absolutely do that Audrey. And you too Lucy, you guys would have so much fun doing that together."
Lucy: "Yes! And since we're both five, we'd be in the same class." (You can tell we've been chatting a lot about starting Kindergarten and who might be in their classes...)
Audrey: "Yeah, we'd be in the same class. (Big grin) Long pause, then, "We're going to be together all our life."
I mean, seriously!? Tears pricked my eyes a little when A said that :)
Connor was hanging around too :)
Wish you could have heard the giggles happening during this one :)
