Happy May Day !!!

I saw these pretty buttery yellow flowers at the grocery store today and decided they were the perfect flowers to go in that yellow striped tote bag to hang on the front door for May Day (that is until it started to rain .... so now the flowers are in a vase on the kitchen table and the tote bag is back hanging on the door of my pink sewing room .... oh well, so much for May Day!)

Anyhow, Daisy and I were able to squeeze in a teeny, tiny bit of sewing today .... working on that cherry fabric apron and matching chef hat ...... when who popped in for a visit .....yes it was Kitty .... and she decided she would LOVE to have a chef hat too and would we make her one .... so, first we had to measure her head ...



...then while Daisy and I were sewing, Kitty got bored and started wandering around the pink sewing room .... when she came upon this magazine that I bought a couple of days ago (also at the grocery store)
I've never seen this "B" magazine before (I think it stands for "Boomer" as in Baby Boomer?) .... but the lady in the flowered bathing cap caught my eye and I just HAD to buy the magazine if only for that picture .... could it be that my favorite flowered bathing cap is becoming a trend??????) Anyway, when Kitty saw the magazine she immediately ran home to get HER flowered bathing cap .....




....then she wanted me to take her picture in front of the magazine ....










....oh, and then I remembered a catalog of bathing caps came in the mail yesterday ..... so I brought it out for Kitty to look at ....
.....now I thought I was doing Kitty a favor .... I thought she would enjoy looking at all the different bathing caps in the catalog in case she decides she wants a new one ..... was she appreciative? was she grateful???? ..... you would think so, wouldn't you? .....but NNNNNNNNNOOOOOOOOO!!
...she was in a snit, drove over the magazine AND the catalog, and left in a HUFF ..... she said something about why wasn't SHE asked to be the cover girl on the magazine in HER flowered bathing cap? and why wasn't she asked to model flowered bathing caps in that catalog???????SHEESH !!! (as you can see, I didn't get much sewing done today ....oh well, maybe tomorrow!!)

Toodles,
Mary Anne (aka Mare)
