What's up folks? It's been a long time since I rapped at ya', so Happy New Year!
When I vacation, I vacation hard, so you'll seen I took an extra week or so off between posts. Lots of sleeping, reading, relaxing, family. In addition to this offense, I've also allowed myself a free pass on a January Dress. Instead will use the month to finish January's Dress (the Sixth one) and catch up on various other sewing projects. I sewed my man a sweater for Christmas, and still need to review the cleverly awesome Christmas bounty my Granny sent me. January will be good. Since you've been without picture of this dress for a while, let me show you how the lining came together...I thought it looked so professional and was uber impressed with myself upon our return home:
(You can see I've made a bit more progress and promise to catch you up on those oh-so-harrowing tales soon!)
The vacation was great, and without sewing. It was the only full week I had off all year, and I took advantage of it. Completely relaxing and refocusing. I'm excited for 2011. The best part about the trip though?: When we got there my sister-in-law was pregnant and when she left she had a three day old. Jaimie and Brad are going to be great parents! And oh my god, this kid is so cute.
Hello world, this is Wyatt Matthew and he has a head full of hair! His 20-sided die sits proudly and lumpily in his crib, out of reach of the dogs.
I hope you've had remarkable 2011s so far!
