MY LITTLE CUTIE

Today's list was long ... actually it's still long.  I have lots of shop samples to make and tops to quilt and errands to run.

But ...

I also have a daughter who REALLY wants to be Raggedy Ann for Halloween.


And - because I'm the best mom in the whole wide world ... at least according to my youngest daughter, well, at least TODAY, I was the best mom in the whole wide world, I didn't do "the list" today.  Instead, I did this ...


Even Harleigh, the Wonder Dog, hardily approved!


Did I mention - my youngest daughter is 30 years old?

Sarah's a HeadStart preschool teacher in Baltimore.  She's been searching for a costume and very unhappy with what's available in the Halloween stores - everything was "too slutty."  When she got home today from school, I had quite a surprise for her.  There was no pattern ... I totally made up the whole thing, even the hat/wig.  I stitched yarn to a big circle, then added elastic.  Pretty clever, huh?  It's not as hot as a full wig.  The stockings - Joann's - on sale!

Tomorrow ... back to the list.

You did great! I was Raggety Andy several years way back when and my sister was Raggety Ann. My mom dyed a mop and made the wig and Andy Hat....

Good Memories..... and plenty of kids will have their pics taken so your Raggey Ann will live for decades as well.
