Pile of TuTu's

So Poetry Tag was fun but still hoping for most poems!! Also - the sweet treats recipe swap is still open for submissions!

But in the meantime...
How do you spell/write Tutu? Who cares, I had a pile of them in my house this week...helping a little with some repairs before the big show! I have to admit, my job was SUPER easy - tacking the top layer of Tutu tool to the next layer of Tutu tool. Needle in, Needle out, Knot, twist 10 inches, repeat, repeat, repeat, repeat, repeat - Hey do you remember Peat and Repeat? Oh, What a flashback I just had.

Pete and Repeat went into a store Pete came out and who was left?

Repeat.

Peat and Repeat went into a store Pete came out and who was left?

You get the picture, sorry for the stray...anyway - I like helping when I can and this job was super easy...Much easier than when my mom tackled making entire costumes for me 28 years ago - I will have to hunt down some of these photos for your enjoyment!

Well, here is my pile of Tutu's:

Oh My.. here a tutu, there a tutu, everywhere a tutu! What a good Mom you are. Did you say your Mom used to make your costumes? I would love to see those pictures!

Beautiful costumes! Wah! I wish I had a daughter...

Wow, I can't wait to see the pics of the girls in them! I assume these are for the Nutcracker that you have referenced a couple of times.

(By the way...Tutu is spelled correctly, but "tool" is actually spelled tulle.)

I would love to see pics of your mom's handmade costume creations.

Thanks Allison, I giggled at me when I read your comment - I am sure my mom will belly laugh...spelling and grammer have never been my forte - my brain works too fast to bother with the details! Tulle for Ballet, Tool for construction- Noted!

I am laughing, Terra.......
Love, Mom

Sheesh! Reminds me of my ballet days. I'm starting to itch just looking at them. What a job that was, and a great job at that! Glad Maynerd got kicked out of dance class!
