I'm buried. Busy. Breathing through a straw. But I thought I'd pop in and say a quick hello.
And show you my new "lounge" pants for the April Amy Butler In-Stitches Sew Along. I made them low-rise and cropped. Skipped the drawstring (and the buttonholes) and opted for extra wide elastic.
"Embroidery" was the theme. I added a butterfly very badly at about 11:30 last night. Free hand. And then I remembered I was meeting my friend, Suzanne, at 5:15 this morning to walk. Oy. And walk we did. 3 miles. Now I need a nap.
Lots to do this week before the big birthday party on Sunday. Monkey shirts to finish. Bags to sew. Favors to assemble. Cake to bake and decorate. And in another week I need 3 mother's day gifts and birthday gifts for the girl. (She's getting a skirt out of the leftover pj pants fabric. Shhh! Don't tell!)
Looks like I'll be breathing through a straw for a bit longer.
Ciao for now!
And P.S. The quilt show was FANTASTIC! I'll upload pictures to flickr when I get a chance. There are only 100 of them!
