She Bought Print Fabric
..... when she does not like print fabric so you know it's not for her.
It's for the small daughter, Emily. Emily is turning six in three weeks, so of course she gets fabric for her birthday! So she can build her own stash and leave the mother's alone. The mother, however, weakened slightly upon seeing this print fabric
and bought a little bit for herself in case the day came when said mother might want to make a slew of little kid aprons.
But back to the first person now, and the topic of birthdays. We're doing a tea party sort of birthday for Emily this year. She is so excited that, mere hours after mentioning it to her, she's already exhausted us with her Let's Get Ready Now! suggestions. To regain some measure of calmness and order in the preparation, I drew up this chart of the various tasks that she can be involved in:
She is allowed to pick one thing each day to do, but Mom gets to pick the time of day to do it, and never immediately after getting out of bed in the morning.
P.S. I know you are going to ask, so here's the answer: "I bought them at JoAnn Fabrics."
