I don't know what I was thinking not making a "D" bag for Delia for Easter when I made one for Sadie. My bad. She has been copying her sister when we leave the house, collecting all sorts of things to take with her, in her not-bag. She usually grabs a huge felt bucket which she hangs from her neck. It's about as big as she is and she won't leave until it's full to the top. Sadie asked me if I could make Delia her own bag, because the felt bucket is really dumb in the car. It's a vision hazard. It's that big. I can't believe Delia is only 18 months. This second born thing is amazing. Sometimes she acts like she's almost 3. But then does a crazy baby thing (eats dirt) and all is normal again.
This "D" on the pocket pocket uses the amazing freezer paper stencil. Hannah has started a very cool group over at flickr for freezer paper projects/ideas. Check it out and add your photos if you have tried it. It's so cool to see what people have done.
It's may day! (tomorrow) one on the best days ever in my book. I just need to work on that maypole and some flower wreaths. At the very least I will get some flowers. Or pick some. There is a fun family style mayday thing happening at the Kennedy School, for you local types. I really really wish I were more witchy/pagan and knew all this stuff better (Beltane) I looked for a cake recipe and found none, but I think I could make one anyway and just call it a May Day cake. Actually, I need to hold off on that because I just tested the next mailorder recipe and it is so good that I need to take a break from the desserts for a bit because I have eaten it all.
Oh, I just have to say, not to sound completely vapid, I realize that May Day is now more about labor rights, but I also like it to be about flowers.
The new theme is set over at Tie One On for May, or at least I am going to do it very soon, hopefully tonight.
