Just for a giggle or two, the girls had big fun at the expensive of my clothes and shoes.  Actually the white material are old shower curtains.

    Oh Rodezzy - how lovely. They are so full of life, and so lucky to have you and your fun-loving spirit. Thanks for sharing with us.

      We had so much fun.  Remember that Red Heart Yarn I got from the great grandma.  I knitted two panels up.  One purple and one pink.  The girls learned to embroider their moms names and a heart on those and put fringe on the ends.  Took them home Sun. to their moms.  That was great.

        What memories these will make - lovely idea. I'm sure these scarves will be treasured.

    You had a fun weekend!  Kids are so cute & creative like their grandma, eh?  Sexy shoes, too :)

      Yes, I had a great time.  My son was there for a while too.  He laughed and watched the girls have fun.  Yes, I have lots of "hot" shoes, I love shoes and boots.  The girls feet are as big as mine.  Isn't that something?  I wear a 9.5 USA sizing.

        I noticed (not that you have big feet :), but that they fit into your shoes!  And their feet will keep growing for awhile, too!  My feet have grown, too, over the past decade - used to wear a 7 & now a 9 wide.  Them's the breaks, as they say.

          I've had big feet for a long time.  I'm just glad I have big legs to go along with them.  People rarely notice how big my feet really are.  Although, everything is bigger now.  I'm going to try and loose some of this weight.....not!

          1. Gloriasews | | #8

            You're not kidding!  Everything about me is bigger, too!  But your shoes didn't look that big in the picture - I thought you had little feet when the girls fit into your shoes.  Yah - bad time of year to try to lose weight :(

    Looks like the girls enjoy dressing up as much as you do!  Isn't it great that we never outgrow playing dress up?  They are so blessed to have you teach them and share special times together.  Mary

      Yes, they love putting on the Ritz.  Dominique refreshed her knitting skills with me this weekend too.  I was very happy about that.

        I've tried to knit a few times, it always came out "irregular", long at one end and short at the other.  I can crochet but knitting eludes me.  Mary

          Most people have that problem with crochet because they don't remember whether to put a stitch in the top of the chain of the previous row or what.

    Oh, Rodezzy, they are beautiful! There is nothing like the laughter and smiles of children to keep us young. Looks like you all had a wondeful time.

    What fun! I love their creative combinations and alternative uses of garments.This reminds me of a wonderful weekend workshop I attended more than 25 years ago. Attendees were weavers, costume designers, sewists of all kinds. The leader of the workshop had people in the class try on garments in various ways - shirts upside down, backwards, skirts in various ways also, - just to get us thinking "out of the box". Then she showed us wonderful garments she'd fashioned, or re-fashioned from vintage clothes and linen and lace tablecloths she had collected. That kind of "play" was very helpful inspiring solutions to problems many asked about - weavers were interested in finding ways to use their woven fabrics without wasting a precious scrap, costume designers wanted to find ways to manipulate materials to achieve certain effects, etc. It was great fun for those of us who had probably not played with fabrics and clothes like that since we were your nieces' ages.
