Shopping With Matilda

Last summer while shopping with Matilda

she fell in love with this fabric at Hobby Lobby.

A  dress pattern was shown with it,

but the funny thing is, the pattern was discontinued.

Matilda wanted the fabric anyway.

For one year, with no luck, I searched for a pattern

much like the discontinued one


still appropriate for the fabric and a 7 year old girl.

Till last week! At Half Price Books,

in the sewing section I found this brand new pattern

in Matilda’s size  and it was $1.99.

I was talking to Lauren {Matilda’s Mom} and we laughed….

Maybe Matilda will not like the fabric anymore!

It has been one year since she picked it out!

Fingers crossed that she will still like it.

I will buy {or make} a knitted pink shrug for her to wear with it.


It is Thursday.

I walked my laps

and saw a hot air balloon while I was at the lake.

My dresses are at the dry cleaners,

dinner is planned.

Let the day begin.

Love you.
