Well, at least the ironing board is clear of any debris.

The Little Fat Policeman

Look at this adorable fabric!

My grandmother-in-law had been hiding this away in her closet since 1950-something and it has finally been uncovered to be turned into wonderful, wonderful things. This is actually a "Little Golden Book" fabric print. It's right there on the selvage. If your not familiar with this book, here's a scan of the whole thing. Absolutely adorable!

So mom and I have been trying to create some items for baby boys and this fabric just screamed BABY BOY!

We're so excited about these silkies! Can't you feel the excitement? :-)

Prom Night

So Chris and I decided to have a theme at the last swing dance at the Portuguese Hall. Prom Night! Era left to our attendees discretion (we figured that would make for an interesting night). One of our students emailed us asking if we were sure we wanted a prom night theme - he attached this link to the email that had pictures of just TERRIBLE prom outfits. We cracked up! Bad and awkward prom outfits were exactly what we were looking for!

Check out the shoes!! He actually danced in those all night!
