This is just a quick post on some random things I did this past week. I had a little party for my seniors at work that was ocean themed. As a little treat, I dyed some vanilla pudding blue with food coloring to create “ocean water” and used some graham cracker crumbs to make “sand”. They liked it!
I also made little origami sea creatures (which I forgot to get a photo of) for decorations and parting gifts.
This past holiday weekend I worked on a modern summer dress that may or may not be worn at my son’s casual wedding. It is all done except for the sleeves (and ironing). I took this picture before finishing the neck line.
I can’t decide what I will do for sleeves. Easiest thing is to just hem the edges. But, my arms aren’t exactly the arms of a 20 year old athlete. But I also don’t have a lot of left over fabric to deal with so I wouldn’t get much more than a cap sleeve out it. I will stew on it this week and see if any inspiration comes to me.
