Today has been a rainy summer day.
So this morning after our morning chores I sewed up a nightgrown for
Rebecca. My mom had sewn up 2 for Sarah for her birthdy last
week. I told Rebecca I would sew up a couple for her too I
made one for her last sunday, and this morning I sewed up another
one. They are so easy!! It only took me about 2 hours at
the most to sew it this morning! Rebecca is thrilled and she
asked me if she could wear it tonight! 🙂
This afternoon I decided to do some baking. The cookie jar
has been empty for a while now. So I bake cookies and
muffins. Here is the recipe I used for the cookies. this is
the first time I used this recipe and the family has exclaimed that
they are delicious!
