Who built the Ark?

I received a phone call from my sister , she is involved in the bible drama that the children will act out for their congregation. The date of the Play is March 4th.

Noah's ark! There will be 15 children in the drama not counting the one who will be the different animals going into the ark. Which is a great way to make sure every child has a part to play.

She asked me to make the costumes! Fortunately she asked my cousin to help as well. Once I find my camera I will have pictures to post. The family of the child will be responsible for providing the materials of each costume. My sister thought those who did not have material could make a donation of 7.00 for the costumes.

She caught me just as I am in the middle of making another mei tai baby carrier but it will all work out eventually. The first meeting will be this sunday and I should have the tunic which will be used as the beginning for each costume. This will allow me to make some adjustment and styling of the costume once I am sure which child each one is for.

So I will be making 5 costumes for children and 2 costumes for adults who play the role of the nephlim. Both of these men are about 7 feet tall to the average height of a 7, 9 11 year old. I am sure they look like giants to them anyway.

I am excited about this one. I have not made costumes in a long time. This should be fun!

I need Therapy

It's important to take time for yourself and I am one for telling others to do that for themselves but often i do not do this for myself.   I find that I am surrounded by people who need me to do things for them.  Nothing major things that they can do themselves but it is easier to get someone else to do it and i am that someone else.  Gail do this, gail do that.  Good grief!
There are times when I feel like I am just living my life.   Just making it  day after day, one day blends into the next one.  Don't really see accomplishments, advancements, forward movements. As a result i an feel a bit lost and out of sorts.  I feel the need for therapy. I have a bujo and in it i have schedule and routine for everyone and thing with the exception of me.  I discovered this when i took a moment to review the schedules and routines to figure out  why i was not getting any sewing projects completed, no practice time for watercolors and the crocheting and needlework was sitting in a  corner.…

Life in a Scheduling Room

It has been some time since I felt it necessary to say anything about my job.  However this is something that i need to address at this time.  My work associates range in ages and this diversity helps our department funtion in an ackward yet somewhat effective way.  One coworker who is very verbal about everything that goes wrong.  You know when she is not well because she is quiet and there are times when she is very focus on what she is doing and if that concentration is broken so is her silence.  For the most part this does not bother me except when she takes me out of my zone and then my work rhythm is interrupted.   I am sure i am guilty of doing the same to her i think everyone does.  Then there is next coworker a beautiful young lady that gives the impression of being younger than she actually is and so I have a tendency to feel like  need  to protect her.  That is something I had to stop doing it was not needed and i hope I did not offend her.  Her method working is not as pr…

Beyond Mesaure

My mother taught me to sew my clothes because I was bigger then the average girl.  Please note the word I used was bigger not taller.  This is what I heard from family and friends " wow you are getting big"  At the age of 11 or 12  big means fat not tall.  
When looking at picture of myself at that young age when I was getting bigger it turns out I was quite slim. My Uncle called my lean bean, because I was long and lankey. He was the only one who go the measurment correct and described me in a way that I preferred to big. 
Before going into High School I stood 5 feet 8 inches tall and when I graduated high schooL I grew another .75 inches taller.  I tell people I am 5 foot 9 inches tall.  I love being tall  I am not a fan of being big. 
My sister stands 5 foot4 inches tall and she remembers as she was growing being told she was big.  I guess my family does not use pharses like " my how you have grown" and instead use phrases such as  "Wow you are getting big!…
