One Down, Many More to Sew

My linen skirt, Simplicity 4036, is all done. I was finally able to sit at my machine and stay awake long enough to finish it. I know that was a simple pattern, but as I have said before, I want to focus more on fit. I ended up making it in a size 18 w/ no changes. My first trial was too big in the waist and hips. After some adjustments, I figured out the correct size. My photographer fell asleep on me, so I hope to have some pics of me wearing it soon.

So it's obvious that there has been no sewing going on around here. I clearly need a twin just to run errands.

I'm down to ramblings at this point....

How come I want to sew but every time I sit at my machine, my eyes get heavy??

Why is it that my son won't ask dad to do anything and comes straight to me??

How come dad doesn't offer when he asks me??

I really want to do some planting this weekend, I hope the weather behaves.

I made two cakes two weeks ago and I will never do that again. I keep reminding folks why cake decorators charge the way they do. It's alot of work in the details.

That's all I got for now...

Happy sewing....
