Beautiful Night

I haven't sewn or been crafty since maybe July? June? It's been too long to remember. The last few months have been a whirlwind with Young Women stuff, holidays, health issues, and some good books that took precedence over sewing. But I got the sewing itch today and thought of about 50 sewing ideas I want to do this week (before Road Show hits!). I hit up Jenny's Fabric's tonight and then came home and got to work. I kept interrupting Josh's studying to proclaim my love of fabric to him. He was getting concerned. In all my excitement, I got a little hasty in my cutting and snipped off a good 8 inches of the drawstring to my pajama pants. Then I started my hoarse laugh/cough (I'm recovering from the plague), immediately texted my sister, she laughed, which only made me laugh/cough even more. Ahhhhh.....it's been a good night.

That drawstring picture makes me laugh so hard! I wish I could've been there to see your reaction. I can just hear Bryn saying, "Mama cut her pants? That funny?"

i can't believe you think you haven't been crafty since june or july. do you remember those cool letter felt things you made for your little girl. or the amazing play group stuff. i can't allow you to not admit...that was pretty crafty.
