Not much today - very early day today. Submitted the pictures at the store today - should be ready in about a week. I'm not in a hurry. I also found a yard of thin ice grey cotton, hopefully to be made into a shorter sleeved version of the tunic by Crafty Dogma
posted earlier - my jacket's pattern should be a good starting point for the size. For dinner Esme asked for 'foop', so I made her some beef/carrot soup from a beef Ramen package (only half the bouillon used), canned carrots, tomato paste and a flavoring bottle we were all given a sample of from the Taste of Home cooking showcase (from Allegro foods
, quite good stuff). Esme really liked the broth and was picking out every carrot she could find to eat. She almost ate a noodle, but thought better of it. That will take some work! I was impressed and quite happy with the outcome of my 'science experiment' type soup. Mark made some breadcrust pizza afterward and Esme ate some of that - then had her bath and crashed in a furious fit at about 7:30... that seems par for the course lately. She seems to have given up naps entirely now, favoring crashing earlier and harder instead. *sigh* We'll just have to give in to having our dinners earlier instead of at seven which is usual for us.
Another early day tomorrow, but the weekend off. Looking forward to that. Esme's shortened green top worked even better than planned -- will probably cut a few inches off the green 'moo cow' one that was cut out as well...
