So, I won't tell you about how my body feels and you don't complain about posts being few and far between, m'kay?
I have been very. slowly. working on the Punk's Easter dress. I even had an issue with the thread being seated improperly between the upper tension disks - I just left the stitches in anyways. It was part of the shirring, so who's gonna notice? ( I am not picking out three rows of shirring!)
This is what we have so far:
In the meantime, I may take up a hand sewing project....I'm thinking paper piecing; maybe hexies, or some kind of brilliant two-patch pattern that I have yet to draft. The Husband encouraged my dalliance in hand sewing by purchasing a suitable container to corral my supplies in one place.
|Husband even spent some time scraping the stickers off so I could refinish any way I desire.|
Have I told you how compassionate my Pixie is?
She knows when I'm hurting and volunteers to do things to make my life easier, like filling my water bottle. She also tucked in some furry companions next to me - I'm sure it was to keep me distracted.....
|She told me this was her car and she was driving. At one point, Elmo took one of the back seat places.|
WIP List: (for my benefit)
-House of Love
-Punk-ish Easter dress
-Husband's Irish Chain
Plus, the Pixie needs an Easter dress. There are throw pillows to be made (four, to start). Both girls want new aprons. I want a dress for me.
I'm going to live at the chiropractor's this week!
