A Good Weekend


Mr. S and I agree that weekends of what could be described as "nothing" are really the best ones...

We visited the Good Catch Fair, played at Trinity-Bellwoods park, watched movies after Safiya had gone to bed (at 8pm - yay!), family came over on Sunday morning, and in the afternoon we went to Safiya's friend's birthday party. It was a lovely party with good food, conversation, and three other adorable little girls (all in pink :-)

Of course the thread throughout the weekend was Safiya and I making this little girl's present. She insisted it be purple, and she helped when I needed backstitching on the machine or needed to turn corners (she operated the presser foot). When she wasn't with me, she was puttering around the house with Mr. S, helping with laundry, "fixing" things, and they were chattering away with the hum of the sewing machine in the background. Having us all just hang out and working like this with her at a leisurely pace is becoming one of my favourite things to do :-)


And these pillowcases (and buckwheat pillows) are becoming one of my favourite things to make!
