Ode to Playdough & Recipe

Ode to playdough

Not on my carpet, or in the mouth,

Just give me a few moments of peace in this house.

Cut out some cookies, bake some bread too.

Roll out a ball, make dumplings for stew.

Little fingers mold and press

while mommy sits down to rest.

My mom had a recipe she gave me on an old index card when my teenagers were toddlers. I don't remember playing with it at home, it was made for preschool Sunday School.

Here's the recipe if anyone needs it:

1 cup flour

1cup water

1/2 cup salt

2 tsp. cream of tartar

1 tbsp. oil

food coloring

Combine dry ingredients, add others. Cook 3 minutes at medium heat. Stir until it starts to come away from the pan. Knead 5 times. Store in air tight container.

Still working on the petticoat. I have changed a few things from the

vintage McCall's pattern 2389.

I am attaching netting that I gathered under the taffeta layers.

I found some pink tacky tulle with sparkles for my little fashionista. I think I am going to put it it over the white tulle on the red lady bug dress that she loves so much.

I found this fabric at Hancocks the other day. It's prewashed but not pressed, obviously. We like the doggies. The pink bandana fabric is going to go with a little cowgirl outift I want to create. Using leftovers from my camper redo, I have a cow print that I will make into a vest.
