Various and Sundry Monday: Vol. 25

If a small thing has the power to make you angry, does that not indicate something about your size? –Sydney J. Harris

Apron № 110: Retro Pears

For my Leap Day Giveaway, I offered an apron, made-to-order in the winner's choice of size. Nancy was the winner and this is her apron. Nancy, watch your mail box :wink:.

Here's a close-up of the pocket, because it is just so darn cute.

Dad Was Here
Saturday morning, my parents came down to bring LadyBug her birthday presents and take us to breakfast. My dad hijacked my camera.

Last month, my mom made a costume for the Jr. High School play for her neighbor. It was a really last-minute deal and she put the costume together in just a couple of days. She took a quick photo of the costume with her phone, texted it to me, and dropped the costume off on her way to work so her neighbor could have it for dress rehearsals. At the time she, didn't even know what play it was :lol:.

I posted the costume for her because she doesn't blog so she could link up to the February Finishes linky party. Since then, we have a few more details. The play was Guys and Dolls {one of my all-time favorite musicals}, which my parents went to see. My mom's neighbor was one of Miss Adelaide's Hot Box Dancers and here she is in her costume.

On a slightly related note, when I was in High School, the play my senior year was Guys and Dolls. Our sewing class was assigned to make the costumes for Miss Adelaide's Hot Box Dancers.
