The homeschool group did it’s All Saint’s Day party last night. In attendance:
St. Martin, preparing to cut his cape in half (store bought several years ago – see Bill)
Boniface Pius X Ignatius of Antioch, whose feast was yesterday (also store bought and reworked – see Medusa) Billy had trouble deciding.
St. Elizabeth of Hungary (yes, I made it, no, I’m not proud. It is, quite honestly, poorly done.)
Mary, Mother of God (Bill bought me that scarf in Afghanistan, the dress is Princess Leia with a trim added)
St. George (Bill made this suit of armor SEVEN years ago out of poster board. He is a clever man. Fritz wore it, but all the other children have shunned it, until now. I have saved it, dutifully protected with crumpled newspaper. Our grandchildren might wear it. Or perhaps I’ll have it framed in a shadowbox.)
I wanted Mary to be a dragon for George, but she would have none of it.
My sewing machine has been going non-stop for weeks, it seems. I’m not done yet.
