Well, it has been awhile since I last wrote! Our Sunday was uneventful and we left Monday at lunch for Louisville. John David was there for training until Wednesday and I tagged along! I did a little work, read, and went shopping while in Louisville. We arrived home Wednesday just in time for church.
Yesterday, I slept in! How nice! I left here around 11:30 and went to Penney's and Ross. I found several really great deals at Penney's! I bought John David a dress shirt and tie and two shirts for me for $13.90!! I was really excited!! At 1:30 I went to Jen Burns' house to sew!! She was teaching a lady from church how to sew and I brought my mending and a few projects to finish up! I had a really great time there! I got all of my mending done! And I finished this really cute bag that I began in March or April.
It is a canvas bag that I made. I hand stitched the recycling symbol on the front.
Close up of the stitching...it's not perfect, but that gives it character!!
Last night I had the desire to sew really bad so I decided to make myself a sun dress out of one of my cotton prints! I didn't get much done last night so my project today has been making this dress! I didn't have a pattern, I just used a little logic and measured myself as I went. I think it turned out pretty good, it is not perfect by any means but I like it!!
It really looks like a little girl's dress here!
Back view! I made the button holes by hand sewing them because my machine doesn't make button holes! It took a lot of time but they look pretty good and they work!
Well, tell me what you think, should I never wear it or should I wear it??
