This was the first day of second grade for Genevieve, kindergarten for Ben. There were no tears, thank God.
I made Genevieve's jumper. It's the second round, because the first one made from the pattern was too broad and slopped off her shoulder. I put it away and hoped she would grow broader next year.
I made Ben's shirt. It is not a success in my eyes, but don't tell Ben: he loves when I make him clothes. I'm not pleased that the collar is so large and odd (this was a vintage 70s pattern) and the buttons are spaced oddly.
And that is the barest skim of the details because I'm exhausted. But happy.
