I realized that I haven't been blogging about my kitchen work. I believe it's mostly because Phoebe is urgently hungry at meals, so I feel pleased to just get food on the table and into her mouth and I don't have much time to photograph anything (I like to put pictures with my posts). I'm going to try to be more deliberate about that.

Solving the Pencil Bag Issue for the Big Girl
One day it finally registered with me that Genevieve was carrying her school pencils in a ziploc bag, punctured by their points and ugly as those bags always are. I asked her if she wanted me to make her a pencil bag. Yes! And since she was playing with the baby, she gave me carte blanche to pick the fabrics, too. Fun! I suddenly had an inspiration and asked her if it would be helpful if the bag was on a big elastic that held it in place on her binder. Oh yes! Fortunately I had some frilly yellow elastic on hand - I thought I might see if I could make some sagging knee socks stay up. But in the meantime, Genevieve has a sweet little pencil bag that is convenient and much nicer to look at than a filmy, pockmarked plastic bag.
