Our family's homesteading adventures in the mountains

Katy’s new outfit

Katy found a McCall’s pattern for an early american outfit.  She was so excited about getting the pattern and supplies and digging in to make it.  She started the pattern on Thursday and completed it by Monday night.  She made pantaloons, a bonnet, a apron and the dress.  There were some challenging moments during the project, but she stuck with it and has a beautiful outfit to show for it.

Finally earning her keep!

She spends most of her time under the delusion that she is a queen and deserves royal treatment.  She fills her time by seeing imaginary things to chase.  When she is not chasing figments of her imagination, she lounges around taking baths and naps.  This week, however, everything changed.  So far this week she has caught and killed two mice.  This of course only adds to her overly large ego, but I am thrilled that she is finally serving a purpose.
