Cats in Sweaters. CATS. IN SWEATERS.
Go home, Joann. You're drunk.
Then a few nights later, we made some cats in sweaters!
Funfetti with orange frosting... Tastes like an Orange Creamcicle!
Then one night while sewing, and Instagraming, and enjoying an adult beverage - I hit a pin on my serger. NEVER have I ever done this, and guess what happened? The KNIFE broke. Not the pin - the pin isn't even bent. The top part of the knife flew off, right by my eye, before I even realized what actually happened.
Horrifying and also really not good for business! I had to finish the leopard print sweater you see here by the next day. So off I went the next morning to my local sewing machine shop to get a replacement knife. THIRTY dollars, in case you were wondering. That Pabst Blue Ribbon cost me THIRTY dollars.
Shiny new knife. All is well with the world.
I shared a picture of the lines of my Bimaa Pattern... they are colorful! The Hosh Pants are digitized in all black lines, but that wasn't possible with the Bimaa. Pretty, non?
And, finally, listed for sale! Clicking that Publish button is an amazing feeling. I can't wait to do it again and again. :)
Bought myself these ridiculously amazing loafers on Etsy for $20 including shipping. Sort of a congratulatory gift-to-self, and also in anticipation of Spring! My favorite season!
Drool. They have arrived since, and they are spectacular.
But today - this is happening:
Oye. SO Winter weary.
It's supposed to be in the 50's all next week, so there is light at the end of the snow blower.
So that's my week in Instagram pics. Come follow - there are lols to be had. :)
And here's what I think I'm making for Emmy's birthday dress...
New Look 6115. The adorable bow version.
I have this fabric that I really want to use for it - it's just a matter of finding the perfect mate to use for the other panels of the dress:
Maggy London satin, found here. (There's 5 yards left as of now... If ya' like it, better hustle!)
So I'll raid my stash tonight and see what I have to work with it. I think it'll be really cute - I pull this pattern out all the time to remind myself to make the dang thing! The bow! The panels! Ahh! Perfect for a lovely lady who's turning three, don't you think? :)
