We celebrated St. Nicholas Day on Friday. The girls loved their new flannel night gowns, pillowcases, and umm… puppy!
I stitched up size 6 and 8 and they were on the big size. The nightgowns are McCalls M4646, I meant to make these last Christmas, but ran out of time. The hat is Simplicity 9982, essentially a 21 inch diameter circle, lined with an elastic casing.
Meet Si, short of Silus. I never thought I would get a puppy again, the housebreaking is so much work. He is about 9 - 10 weeks old. He came with the name Si, we answered an ad posted by another family – where he lasted a week and who I suspect had no idea the amount of work is involved in carrying for a puppy or that puppies bite. They didn’t use a crate either, so we are starting from scratch. He doesn’t like the leash either, but I hope that will be worked out within a week or so.
Below are the new pillowcases. I made one for the girls and their nephew.
Have a great week and thanks for stopping by,
