American Idol and American Girl

Yesterday I sat around a lot with my grandson Anthony. He had a fever and wasn't feeling to good so we cuddled and I crocheted and caught up with the last 5 episode's of American Idol. Now that's really a sad thing to admit that I watched like 7 hours of American Idol in one sitting, but I did fast forward through all the commercials and some of the repeat things on the show so that cut out a couple of hours. Right??

I really like Alexis Grace who was one of the 3 chosen on Wednesday night to be in the final 12. She seems very sweet and has an amazing voice and stage presence.

I crocheted Mallory and Addy matching hats. I put a little hole in the back of Addy's for her ponytail. Addy has unbelievably thick hair!

I definitely am going to have to make Addy a modern outfit to go with her hat. The 1860's style dress doesn't exactly match the hat, but Mallory was loving it!

Have a great day! I'm going to get off my tushy and do some organizing in the house today. I can't even get into my craft room because there is so much fabric, yarn, paper, and not junk, but important craft supplies.

I love to sit for hours and watch the same TV show. It lets you feel you are a part of the show, right?

Hi Sherry
I love the matching hats. They are gorgeous.
We just watched the American Idol episode you mentioned tonight over here. We liked Alexis Grace too. We think she will do well in the competition.
