Long Day

I started this by giving a detailed description of the past two days.  Then I thought to myself, "Self, they don't need the gory details."  I deleted it and you may thank me later (I like yarn and fiber to spin, I will wait by my mailbox).  The upshot is that Margaret is sick and I feel really bad for her.  She's been vomiting and we spent the morning in the ER and Zofran helps, but she had to take another dose before bed and I was really hoping the dose in the hospital would have gotten her over the hump and she would have been better by now.

In other news, I painted her nails for the first time on Wednesday.  I got quick drying polish because if it took long to dry it wasn't going to stay on
Check out my awesome nails.
While she was feeling a little better today, we got our hair cut.  I take her to the same woman who cuts my hair because she got a crappy cut at one of the kid places, and I really like the woman who cuts my hair and she does a great job with Margaret, too.  I'll have to take a picture of her when she's feeling better.

I made the doll, AND the dress.  Crazy.
Margaret with Petronella.
 So, there is the doll in her dress.  Rather proud.  First time I believe I've sewn something on a machine that wasn't just a straight seam.  When I showed my mom on Skype she thought it was nice, but thought my mother-in-law made it.  She was much more appreciative of the awesomeness when she was informed that I made it (because it would have been no great shakes for either grandma to make because they both sew very well).
Pay no attention to the large drop of drool on my chin.
In other news, The Countess is getting bigger and stronger every day.  She was also really good while we were in the ER.  Started getting her to sleep in her own crib and room last Friday and so far it's going pretty well.

Figured out how to stop these entries from posting as notes in Facebook (really not at all intuitive).  Next time I'll show you progress on my Polwarth fiber.

I hope it okay that I am reading your blog. I searched on google blog search for "aurora mom sew". Because I am looking to meet other mom's in Aurora who enjoy the same things as me. Anyways, I have never tackled making a doll so way to go!
