I'll fill this entry full of pictures. The weather has been so nice lately, that I find myself outside more. However, the lure of my new Pfaff sewing machine has been strong and I completed a few projects and have a few more in the works.
Dinah, do you recognize the following fabric? She sent me 2 pillow cases in our pink and green swap, which I refashioned into a little girl gathered skirt. However, I have the feeling it's going to be a bit big for her this year.
I picked up the green bias trim and eyelet ruffle at the thrift store a few weeks back. These two finds really perfected the whole skirt.
I also made this skirt for myself out of a king size sheet found at the Goodwill. I cut the stripes at a 45 degree angle to make a saw tooth design. I really botched the waist band trying to make it a draw string, but I'll still wear it around.
And this dress is currently sitting on the sewing machine. It's at the stage of pin tucks and darts so it complements my figure. Then I have to put in the zipper, finish the arm holes, and hem it up. It should be ready for church this Sunday.
I have to go pick up my paint for the frames I posted yesterday, so I can get those off my porch and onto my bare walls this weekend. I need to get my body moving. It's still sore from playing Ultimate Frisbee twice this week. Blah!
