September already? Blows my mind. Just saying.
Okay, we're on Day 6 and things are still on a slow path to improvement. It kind of blows my mind just how long this recovery is taking. Wells had major reconstructive surgery on her skull at 7 weeks old and again at 6 months and we pretty much came home from the hospital with some tylenol and a happy baby. This is not the case with Tagg. He's still on big time pain killers and having a tough time. I think we're on the home stretch though!
Needless to say when you're stuck at home and inside with two small children you start to go stir crazy. But sometimes that crazy can be channeled into productivity. Such was the case on day five of Tagg's recovery when Wells requested a puppet theater. I guess all that extra coffee I've been needing is good for something.
I found a brand new set of finger puppets at a consignment sale last Spring and it's been a big hit with Wells. We usually do puppet shows slumped under the ottoman but I figured a quick curtain theater would make it really fun for her! And she's been so amazing these past few days that I wanted to do something special.
I think it could be really fun to make another one in red and green for Christmas. I'm not sure why I think they'll do holiday themed puppet shows, but somehow that seems really likely. I also love that the fabric is fun, one I wouldn't normally use for pillows or drapes but it still matches the room. You better believe it's still hanging there right now. The kids think it's cool to use it as a secret passage way or spy corner.
Have you done any simple sewing (or no-sew) projects lately? I have got to get a new sewing machine.
