I made some pumpkin pancakes for breakfast today. Yu-um. I took my basic pancake recipe and added a cup of pumpkin, a little more sugar, cloves, ginger and cinnamon. They were a hit with the family this morning.
Ellie's holiday skirt is finished. It actually got done almost a whole week before the Fall Program! (not the wee hours of the night before) I used a circle skirt pattern with a wide elastic waist band, inspired by Dana's instructions over at Made. I didn't do the math part for the skirt - I just used a poodle skirt pattern I already had on hand. I did follow the instructions for the waist band. I even tried dyeing it red. Not entirely thrilled with the dye job, so I made the sash to tie around Ellie's waist to cover the elastic. The skirt is two layers, a sheer with the swirl pattern and a red satin underneath. Next to come - boy bow ties and vests!
Thanks for reading!
