Friday Fanfare - Fabric

This morning we were able to quickly complete our tasks in the Children's Learning Center at our church.  Then we went to Walmart so I could pick up a few groceries so we would make it through the weekend.  While there they had 5 yard bolts of fabric for $5.  That's a really good deal on fabric.  I found two that I really liked.  One is pink, it is a loose weave similar to monks cloth (I'm thinking a light-weight blanket for one of the girls.) and the other is a pale green with green and pink flowers.  Katy found one that she wants to make a dress out of, it is green with daisies and blue, yellow and orange spots - I got the same pattern to use for the girls in pink with green, red, and yellow spots.  So I guess I may have some more projects in the making.  I'm thinking something with pleats for Katy...is that a hassle for ironing?  I hope not because I don't manage to iron very often.  Christmas is coming.  I should start working on them soon if that is what I decide to do. 

When we got home we ate lunch and the kids all went out to play.  We are enjoying today.  It's a reprieve from earlier this week when being a wife, mom and teacher wasn't going as smooth as it has been and the house was a complete wreck.  I have a wonderful husband though, who came home Wednesday evening and just started to help - he didn't even say anything about it.  Thanks Jeff, I was dreading walking back into the kitchen, knowing that I had no place to even think of making supper and it was already past supper time.  I was thinking we were going to have to have milk and cold pop-tarts on napkins for supper, but instead we were able to at least have PBJ and chips.
