My baby is 6!  We told her she was not allowed to turn 6.  We even tried to cancel her birthday - but February 13th came around anyway.  So, we did what any good parents would do, we threw her a Fairy Birthday Party.

All the girls were to come in their Fairy Best - minus the accessories because we would provide those.  We spent the afternoon crafting wings and wands.  The wings are two pieces of 12x18 stiff felt cut into wing shape, sewn together, with elastic also sewn in for arms.  They were decorated with foam stickers, pom poms, glitter fabric spray, tool, ribbons, and the occasional sharpie (all with the help of a few moms and hot glue guns).  The wands are wooden dowels with foam stars on the top.  One little girl had only done the basic foam star and wooden dowel wand.  She handed it to her mother and asked "for an upgrade" meaning she wanted ribbons on that too.  The finishing touch was "Fairy Dust" that we sprinkled on everyone.  All I can say is, the Head Fairy is tired.

Reba and I talked college over dinner. Also, we tested out the new machine. She is a scary fast learner. We/she made a heat pack yesterday with very little help. Oh, be still my sewing heart.
