And Life Goes On

Hmmm - this daily blogging stuff is for the birds, obviously I can't keep up with it :) I have been in the sewing space lately and not just to cut ends on knitted goods. Last Friday was my day off, after running some errands. I got some more clear plastic storage bins for organizing stuff. Then I got down to business. I cut out two tops. The first was the orangy top that goes with the "off to the races" skirt. The second was from the same pattern and was cut from a fun pink swimsuit fabric that has black, gray and white circles all over it. I've worn both. You think I'd know by now that different fabrics behave differently. The orange is great! Comfortable to wear, looks good. The pink - should have been a size bigger. It's okay, but I'm not sure I'd wear it out of the house. It's a little too snug and wants to ride up at the midrif! Hello - I'm over 40 not an attractive look!! I also managed to get the pattern for my white skirt traced and most of the muslin done. However, next up - altering the bridesmaid dress and making a huge red bow for the Bride to put on her hiney when she walks down the isle! What in the world is she thinking? Oh, well. After that - I'm planning on finishing the white skirt, then continuing work on the curtain panels from . . . I know, I bet you thought they were done. Nope, one done, just stopped complaining about it. Okay - time to get back to work. By the way, The Princess took photos of a ton of new outfits from this summer yesterday. But The Musical One neglected to live up to her end of the bargain and email the photos to me at work so I could post them. Maybe before Friday :
