Rainy Days and Tuesdays
I love rainy days. They bring with them all sorts of lovely things like warm cookies and the wonderful smell of wet dirt and clean grass. Rainy days are my very favorite thing about early spring.
And in honor of Rainy Days and Tuesdays I have decided to make Creamie her own little raincoat. I bought this pattern a few months ago and I just picked up one of those giant size vinyl wipe able tablecloths for $3. I grabbed a little yellow flannel to line it with and I think it will be just perfect to turn into a little rain coat for Creamie. And you can’t beat $3.
I’m going to add this project to Mrs.Moen’s tablecloth challenge. When I think about it, I seem strange sometimes. I buy sheets to make into dresses, and tablecloths to make into raincoats. I recently bought a $2 hideous dress made of beautiful red corduroy to make myself a fall jacket. I am trying to convince Scott to let me tear the leather off the seats in our unfixable car to make into a purse. (He’s not buying it.) He actually told me the other day that I’ve never met something I didn’t/couldn’t modify. When I asked him what he meant he pointed out that I can never just order what is on a menu, I always have to tweak it just a bit. I’ve never followed a recipe exactly. I don’t follow sewing patterns very well either. But I do use them as a great set of guidelines. I buy furniture that needs fixing and I dream of living in an old fixer upper home with a detatched garage. I told him that compared to taking on an old house that needs a new roof , new plumbing and wiring, and every single surface needs to be stripped and sanded and refinished, turning a tablecloth into a raincoat is going to be easy peasy! But working on that old house sure sounds great, doesn’t it? What do you do with your rainy days?
