It was 102F today. Yuck! I enjoyed the day by cutting fabric, getting ornaments for a swap worked on, painting, sanding, staining, & cinnamon rubbing. All the while I hoped the dishes would wash themselves. But they didn't.
This table is so handy for drying my candy corns between paintings. The orange circle is velvet waiting to be turned into another pumpkin. I'll be using some longer pieces of the velvet to make tall pumpkins. I also have purple velvet to make more pumpkins! I can't wait to see how those turn out.
Finally the sun is starting to set. Sanded up these painted wooden spoons that are a UFO. The leaves are made from fabric, almost done with those. I have a set of smaller leaves all finished and ready to scatter around the house.
Homeschooling has been going well for the most part. Much better than last year now that we've got a year under our belts! Every day is not perfect. There have been a couple of meltdowns, but math is hard!
We've been enjoying reading Little House in the Big Woods. We decided to do lapbooks for this series.
Anabelle used her birthday money to get a new doll. (She has one of these Target dolls (a brunette) and a couple of the horses, but they are in storage in Colorado with all of her other toys.)
Her name is Jenny and she is a baker. Anabelle loves to cook and bake!
