I was asked to help with costumes for a local high school production of the Sound of Music this year. I LOVE that musical. For obvious reasons, I mean, what's not to love? Especially the Captain. Rrroooowww. But I also love it because I was in it in high school. That musical was a big turning point in my life, when I went from shy and mousy and afraid of my own shadow, to the outgoing good-time gal I am today! A teacher encouraged me to try out, and while I didn't get the part I wanted (Leisl...16 going on 17...), I did get to be one of the children (Lousia, the blonde one who can make it up the tree with a whole jar of spiders, anyone?) What FUN that was! I met all sorts of people and just had the best time.
So anyway, I am super excited to be making costumes for other kids to put this on. I'll be working on the "curtain playclothes" and some nun habits. Today I decided to do the younger 3 girls' play dresses. Behold:

I made some more progress on my Downton Abbey Knitalong...
No progress at ALL on my scrappy tripalong quilt, but I hope to get some work done on that this weekend. I did finish the clutch I was working on last week; more on that soon!
