This year Rory is going as Merida for halloween.
She’s the princess from Brave.
She’s going to be a very popular Halloween costume this year. And how could Rory not get in on all that hype?
But she couldn’t just show up in a store bought costume, not that there’s anything wrong with that. My mother was visiting last week for a few days. And I took full advantage of her sewing skills. I can sew a straight line, but this was going to take a professional to pull off this costume. So it was a joint effort, but without my mom it would look like a bag of trash. So we do owe this all to her. And Rory’s bow hunting skills…
What do you think? Do you think Disneyland would hire her as a junior Merida?
Yesterday, Rory and I got to hang out with some friends. We had a full day of boutique shopping and fun girl time. But while we were doing that, Joey and Delilah had some fun too.
Delilah loves bugs, she had a bug themed party for her 2nd birthday. We’ve talked about getting her a bug cage to catch bugs in so she could study them. But Joey did one better, he and Delilah built one. I’ve never been more prouder.
Delilah doesn’t say butterfly, but b-fly, hence the name B-Fly Box. We like it, so we say it too.
We have this plant that the butterflies love. I can’t remember the name of it, so if any gardener readers want to chime in…
The girls had a butterfly hunt and I took some pictures. A lot of pictures.
Of course there were about 100 more, but I’ll just stop right there.
I made the shirt Delilah is wearing for the butterfly hunt. I was going to do a blog post on it, but I think you’ve seen enough of that.
Hope you are all enjoying your weekend!
I found some remnant fabric at Joanns of sparkly flowers. I didn’t have a plan for it, but I knew a little girl who would love to own something made with it. It sat around the house all week before it hit me that it needed to be made into a twirly fancy circle skirt. I’m a big fan of the circle skirt. This is my third. By now I don’t even need the pattern. I just wing it.
You can see the other two skirts here and here.
I added a blue ruffle on the bottom and a orange ribbon tie.
It’s hard to see the sparkles in the pictures, but they are there, and they are amazing. Ha! But you really do need to see it in person to witness all of its sparkling glory.
It passed the twirl test.
And that’s that!
