Needle and thREAD
I feel like my days have been pretty full just keeping up with life but there is more sewing on my to do list and it can't wait! I have a bridesmaid dress for myself to take care of by next Thursday night.
I've only pinned the hem so far -- with the help of my attorney husband who was a good sport and marked the front, back, and sides of the dress so that I could connect the dots. I'm hoping for the best. I think I might have pinned it a pinch too high, but I'll fix that. In my years at the bridal shop, I learned an easy way to make neat little hems in chiffon.
The dress also has a halter strap I need to adjust for my neck size. The bodice is too small at the band right above my baby bump, but I don't have the heart or energy to do anything about it. It zips and right now that's good enough for me!
I'm reading as much as I can while the kids play outside. I'm finishing up Ten Ways to Destroy the Imagination of Your Child by Esolen and I started this book on Monday:
My reading feels a bit slow-going, but it's all good.
That's all from my neck of the woods. Thanks for stopping by! ~ Liz
