She's Six!

Rubes turned six on Friday. Hard to believe. We had a party at Grandma's house on Wednesday and then some family fun on the actual birthday. There's another party for her friends coming this Saturday.
Ruby's Hula Hoop
Ruby still had her stitches during the visit with the relatives. My youngest sis, Tawnie, said the coolest thing...
Tanwie: "Do you know what a line or scar on your body means?"
Rubes, looking leery: "No?"
Tawnie: "It means you have an interesting story to tell."
Wish I'd thought of that one myself. My older sis, Tara, had a funnier thought after Rubes scowled at her...
Tara: "Hey, Misty, Ruby has a furrowed brow with an exclamation point!"
I was trying really hard not to pee myself. I found that extremely funny. Rubes's stitches came out on her birthday and once again she was a star. I'm happy to report that all is healing nicely. I was also busy this week making Ruby a dress. Hers is the one on the right. I "copied" from the one on the left, which I picked up at a bag sale last spring. I simply made paper patterns of the top and measured the lenght of the bottom ruffles or pieces. Definitely the most intricate item I've sewn to date. Quite fun and I'm already planning more but with thicker straps.
These are the party invites I made as well.
Ruby's 6th Birthday Invites
I'm taking a laid back approach to this party since it seams like the more I plan the more stressed I become and the crabbier I get. Tis true. Rubes has a ton o' party ideas so I'm sticking with... Game/Craft, Food, Cake, Gifts, Free Play. We're talking five little giggly girls here and we have plenty of dress-up clothes. Now to make it through the week. There are cookies to make, party favors to create, Easter dresses to finish and another "boy" present to make. (This one is Star Wars related..... may the force be with me!)

Ruby is such a good little trooper! Glad to hear she's on the mend. And Misty, you...a crab, I don't think so :) You've been busy, busy making beautiful things!
