Speaking of, last night I sat down with my newly serviced sewing machine (which by the way is sewing dreamily), and tried to finish my wide leg lounge pants for last month's InStitches Along. Yeah, somehow the inseam was a little too short and it left my huge butt hanging out. I'd take a picture of them on, but I don't want to scare anyone away. Of course, the wide legs weren't a problem at all. Geez.. they're like swim trunk! I was so frustrated that I didn't finish hemming the pants, and now they will become a nice present for my cousin. Hopefully they'll fit her.
And of course, I can't walk into a fabric store and not get anything for myself. Now I can stop being jealous of all of you that have found this fabric is Joann's because I have some of my own now!
I just finished sewing the Lotta Jansdotter backpack. I used my new Amy Butler fabric (yum yum!). I guess I didn't read the directions carefully because I messed up on the side part of the casing. Oh well, it'll still be functional. I think if I did it again I'd use the fabrics the other way around. It might be too much pink. I also think this was made for a midget because it is a lot smaller than I thought it would be.
Anyway, I'm glad to be home, although I do miss NY. All the flowers and trees are in bloom here. Plus, I have already made 2 trips to my favorite thrift store in the last 2 days. I had a dream about that store when I was in NY. I think I was having separation anxiety. Hahah.
