Even through the fogginess of the cold medicine I sewed this weekend. I made two things.. Emma's new skirt, the one out of the skirt I found at the Salvation Army.
I love it on her. I wanted to get it finished before Tuesday, she has pictures at her daycare. She has a brown shirt, tights and new shoes to wear with it. I need to take her in and get her hair trimmed as well. Her hair is almost to her rear..... she loves it long and so do I, but man, it's just too much. Anyway, I finished her skirt, which was easy, and then went on to make a Fall/Halloween purse. It is Butterick pattern 3799 . Fairly easy,
but sewing through all of the interfacing and fleece was a little challenging. It is kind of big for a purse, but I can live with that. Next weekend is Emma's purse to match her skirt and aprons for the both of us (I know it seems like people really do not use them, but when I fried bacon the other day I kept thinking... "why do I not have one sewn yet?"). With all of the cold medicine, it was slow going, but all turned out okay. Just frequent rest stops for more meds
and mentholatum for my sore nose. Today was a good day to be sick, it has been raining and colder today.
I am trying to stay up because Under the Tuscan Sun is on right now, and I have such a hard time NOT watching this movie. It sounds like something I would do when Emma's grown... just leave, go buy a house in Europe.. Italy, Provence region of France..... I sure hope everyone had a nice weekend.
