Count down....Three weeks to go.

By this time in three weeks I'll be in Thailand. It just so happens that Chicky Babe's school ball is on the night of the day I fly out.
I have to make her ball dress in the next couple of weekends. The lovely red satin has been purchased and the pattern that requires only minimal adjusting. (I've made this same dress pattern before as a wedding dress for a friend and as a bridesmaid dress for myself, it's not at all complicated.)
I just have to convince her that she should do some housework while I do the dress. I think that is fair! I also had a good idea that for every hour of logbook driving time I do with Bantam Boy for his driver's license he will owe me an hour in housework and gardening. 25 hours in the next 3 weeks. My house should be sparkling!
He's trying to see if there is anyone else he can con into taking him!
As promised earlier here's a picture of the collection of patterns I got from a lady from work ( her mother was a collector of patterns and she recently passed away, I was given them because I might enjoy them) I love them!

How exciting that the trip is nearly here! Love the housework bartering idea - I'll file that one to use later in the little one's life. The collection of patterns you were given is fabulous!

And thank you for the comment on my blog - we've been grinning like idiots ever since we got the news.

One of the reasons for doing this is that the eye automatically searches for a new form element to the left just under the previous elem
