The party is over

I can finally hear the silence from the kids room... It is not easy to fall asleep after a wonderful day like this! Big E had a birthday party for her friends from Kindergarten today. She turns 6 June 25th, but many of her friends start their Summer vacation from the beginning of June so it is a tradition to celebrate her birthday a month early. She does not mind! I forgot to take the before shots, sorry! I made simple party bags for the kids to take home from white tulle and a piece of ribbon to tie it, fast and pretty! Our daughter does not like strawberry cake with whipped cream on top that is usually served at parties in this country so the dad (aka ice-T) opened up an ice cream bar, which was very popular. Big E was very content with her day, especially since her "littelest pet shop" family grew with a butterfly, a cat and a bird that is "soooooo cute".
So apparently there was no sewing to be done for me today, tomorrow I will quit the party planner job (I did enjoy it!) and go back to crafting. First I will finish these small quilts. Then I will make some patchwork tote bags in navy colours, a project I started a year ago, but those colours are always in this time of year, aren't they?

Ice cream bar sounds great! My daughter turned 6 in April, and I'm sure she would have loved that!
And the small quilts look very pretty, I hope we'll get to see them finished soon.

Congratulations to your big girl (in a month) and to you for giving what must have been a wonderful party! I am sure that crafting will resume shortly!!! We are celebrating my littlest one's birthday this weekend too!

Congratulations to your daughter. 6 Years!
Love your balloon quilt!
So funny, I made some gifts with balloon fabrics from Japan and now I’m working on an idea for a little quilt with balloons, inspired by the fabric.
