SoIrE'e In A dAy!

I've been itching to sew!

Mark is out of town until Friday and I just love to tackle some major projects when he does that! I'm not really sure why? Maybe it's the freedom to leave the house a bomb so I can get some things done, that I want done! Maybe it's the fact that I don't have to answer to anyone, there are no other adults to consult with about eating cereal for dinner. The boys don't seem to mind at all! Sometimes, I paint a new room or refinish some cabinets, but this time
I just want to sew!
So my sister Lila has her Soire'e line out in stores this week!
She sent me some for my birthday!

I've been wanting to sew up a little swimsuit cover-up for quite some time and found this darling pattern from Favorite Things at Portland quilt market last spring. I just loved this nighty night pattern, but I thought it would be perfect as a cover-up.

It's amazing what one can acomplish in just a few hours of peace and quite (in the middle of the night)...... and here it is!!!

Isn't that bud print just darling?

.... and here's the back

Now I just need a few more weeks (or months) to get my bod in shape to wear the darn thing! I wish there was a workout and diet plan that worked in just a couple of hours during the middle of the night.....

ho hum!

your bod probably hasn't changed that much since I saw you last so I think you are ready to sport your swimsuit and cute cover-up no problem

Lucy that is darling! You are amazing. So talented in so many areas.
When Jer is gone I get so much done. Always have. Well, at least my own little projects I have waiting. With older kids, not as much. Funny how that is.
LOVE that I have you in my life again. Even if it is through the computer.
