Mother's Day Came Early

- He did it! He retrieved a box of fabric and sewing supplies from "the cave" (our storage room in the basement). I have not been in the cave since we packed up non essentials items last year. We were trying to get the place ready to put on the market. It's still not on the market and we're definitely not show ready.

- I won a pattern from Simplicity.

- I bought a few patterns at Hancock's Vogue sale. I'm working on Vogue 1157. It's a Tracy Reese pattern. I think it would look great with one of my wax prints.

I thought it would look nice mixing 2 different prints kind of like Boxing Kitten.
I think the fabric I chose is too mild.
This is more like it!
What do you think? It would involve a 2nd trip to the cave....
- I'm hosting a housepartyfun event. This is the first one. It's for Captain Morgan Long Island Iced Tea. Dare I wear a pirate costume? Too much? I must say the vision board is really working in the party area. If you're local you should stop by. Enjoy some long islands!

- After a week off, I'm back at the studio working so I need to pick up 4 classes this week. I need it too. I'm feeling fluffy. I've sunk to an all time low with my eating habits. I've gone through the drive-thru. I haven't done this in at least a decade. I also had to take new measurements for the dress I'm making. That's all I'm going to say about that. Ugh. Well not completely "ugh". Full. Bust. Adjustment. :-D

What's going on in your world?

@Ellen McD's Filet O Fish Meal. It didn't taste the way I remembered it but it was still good (salt and fat) and I washed it down with a Dr. Pepper.

@Nilsa I sent you an invite.
