What’s a Girl to Do?

Okay, I’ve got an event coming up. Needed something to wear. UUhhhgggg….that means shopping. Unless it’s fabric, I want no part of it!! Sights like this…

and this….
Kind of make my head spin, and my stomach queasy.๏ปฟ  BUT!  I must find something to wear. ๐Ÿ™  AND don’t even let me think I might have to try on something in a store!  Hate it with a passion.  I know, definitely not typical.  So called up my Kansas…wanna see her…hehehe…she’s gonna kill me…
Thanks to Bobby D for the photo!
๏ปฟ
And we set up a time to “get er done.”  When we met that morning, she told me what she thought of my explanation of wanting to go early in the day and “get it over with.” How she had thought to herself…”this is jan…”   Lol!  
We met in the parking lot at 9:15, it was cold, and she laughed when she saw I had worn my flip flops.  I told her I had worn flips, low rise jeans and a shirt that would slip over my head, for easy access…  I knew she would have me trying on more than I even wanted to think about. :p 
Here she is arranging things in order for me to try on….a friend, indeed
The dress in front…lol, can you say, “Austin Powers”
Obviously, there was something I liked, because I ended up with TWO pictures of it!  Yeah, if you’re looking to buy a jacket, make it leather, if you can. ;))

Do you see this RACK of clothes?!?  I tried on the WHOLE thing!  My mother would never believe it!
๏ปฟDid love the red ruffles, by the way… ๐Ÿ˜‰  Might have to go back and get that AND the leather! ๐Ÿ˜€
Look at these two!  Where does she think I’m going???  And, yes, I tried them on…yeah, I’m laughing, even now. hehehehe

And the winner is….
Grey skirt, black velvet jacket, and that blouse…I don’t even know what to call it, BUT I do know that I don’t have to worry about jewelry!  *bonus*
Whew….after all that…we headed to Panara’s for hot chocolate(K), coffee(me) and scones…  AND can I just say…. I was home in time to feed my kids lunch!
Thanks, K! oxoxoxo

New Meaning to An Old Phrase

How many times have you said, “What did you do last night?”  Or, how many times have you been asked?  Well, two weeks ago I was running on empty, downing that eggnog shake, because I had been up literally the entire night before!  Well, I take that back….I did go to bed at 5….in the MORNING!  What was I doing?  Well, sewing and playing Words, of course! 

Remember those Christmas dresses mentioned in an earlier post? Well you know about those promises. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Here they are…

And here they are on….

Merry Christmas!๏ปฟ
I had thought I was further along, than I was with these dresses.  Then a major distraction hit me head on, and THEN, Tall Guy had to make a trip to the ER for staples.  Get this…at basketball practice, he and a friend go up at the same time, and his friends tooth hits his arm.  No harm, no foul?  Not this time.  The tooth broke off in Tall Guys arm, to be found on the floor later, and, needless to say, sliced his arm like a knife.  Poor boys!  Tall Guy was in the ER that night, and Friend was in the dentist chair first thing the next morning.
AND  we were all at a basketball tournament by that afternoon. :p  I’m thinking a nap on the couch would have been oh, soooooo nice. ๐Ÿ™‚

Stash Report

Can you count fabric pulled?  ๐Ÿ˜‰  Nah, guess you can’t, but here’s what I’ve got to be cut next

Hopefully, it’ll be ready for a picture next week!
Now, on the the Stash Report…..
Fabric in:  0
Fabric in YTD: 12.75yds
Fabric out:  2.5yds
Fabric out YTD: 20.25yds
So, I can still say…Total Fabric out YTD:  7.5yds
At least I’m moving in the right direction(for now).  ๐Ÿ™‚
What have I been working on all week?  Mostly monogramming, that goes out the door before I even think about taking a picture, but I’ve also been working on some sweet little dresses, that will be finished tomorrow.  So, be sure and check back in the next couple of days to see, but for now here’s a peek… ๐Ÿ˜‰
 
Have a wonderful week, thanks for stopping by.  Y’all come back, now, ya hear…;)
