We stopped by the nearby Hancock Fabrics afterward to pick up some felt to make animal finger puppets. Photos to come, I'm winging them from memory of a pattern Mom made finger puppets from when I was a little burrito. I spotted a reel of 1" wide Aida with finished edges (shallow knit scallops) in a clearance basket for $3, but when we checked out the cashier said it wasn't on sale -- despite where we found it and the stamp they use to mark sale/clearance items, so we passed on it. If our neighborhood Hancock has some next time we check out the sale stuff, I'll pick it up. It's stamped with a nursery-style farm animal print on one side, but it's a nice solid white on the other and looks finished from either side.
This afternoon's other potential project is finding the spankies (underwear covers) portion of a costume pattern we have to make a few pairs to match the a-line sundresses. It may take awhile to teach Laurel to not pull her skirt up every time she sits down. (:
Another funny from the week so far: Laurel likes to ask Vogon for pickles almost immediately after he gets home in the afternoon. After setting the container on the counter to get a pickle for her on Monday, he asked her "Do you want a big or little pickle?". She replied "A big one!", to which he wittily replied, "Just like her mother, eh?".
