Blinded by the light.
Who stayed up late into the night sewing snaps onto Easter baskets their kids didn't actually need because they already sewed them some last year?? Yes, I'm nuts. And that's poor husband, right next to me, sewing away. And then I decided to sew sleeves onto WonderGirl's Easter dress even though it came with a jacket. Have I ever sewn sleeves on anything? Naw, just pure nuts.
So on Easter I ate a TON for ham. I was STUFFED. I was also wearing some high-waisted jeans from college that I had no business wearing. So when I moaned and complained that I was seriously full and I couldn't fit into my pants any more, a friend we had over assumed I was pregnant. %$*&^%*&^$. So I took a picture of my torso today to make we feel slightly better.
Aaaaaaaand, a few Easter pictures. You can click on over to the family blog for a few more, but here are a coupla reasons why I haven't blogged in a week.
The best Easter shot I could get:
What most of them looked like:
And the sleeves:
Yes, I actually went to the store, found a material close to the dress, and practiced around with some tee shirt material until I'd kind of figured what sleeves look like and then tried to sew the on. As long as you are a few feet away, they look awesome! (-ish)
Now, I know you don't come here for the pictures. I'll try and get a life so I can post words and things, but no promises. Oh, for some AWESOME words, check out what I'll be reading to my Young Women tonight - Ten Things I Want To Tell Teenage Girls. Pure awesomeness.
