Party, Party, Party!

Mabel and Stella's birthday invitations
The theme this week, in honor of Mabel and Stella's fourth birthday, is Birthday Party!  I was first going to make the theme be Ice Cream since that's the kind of party the girls want.  But I kept thinking of Heidi's first post about Apple Dumplings and Burnt Caramel Ice Cream and I couldn't do that to her.  Unless I send her a new ice cream bucket.
I hope to be spending a good amount of time this week devoted to all things ice cream.  And if you have any good ideas about things for nine 3 and 4-year-olds to do for an hour and a half, please send me your thoughts.  Seriously, email me.

But before I can get to the ice cream party decor and food I need to finish these dang fairies that I want to give to the girls for their birthday.  Here's what I have done so far.  Follow the link below to see what they are really supposed to look like.  I've got a long way to go.  Those curly pink spiders back there are really supposed to be adorable flower houses for the fairies that open and close like a budding flower.

I found the pattern in Knit Simple Holiday 2011.  I fell in love with the little sprites and had to make them.  Flora & Fairies by Susan B. Anderson
