if you can't stay up way too late sewing a dress for your daughter's 3rd b-day in 48 hours, when can you do it? so, it's midnight (sorry for the mood lighting) and I am done with Sadie's dress and matching handbag which I am now going to wrap. there was no swearing at all on this one. I love it when things just go together. the amazing fabric is from this assortment of new ones that I received from Cia's Palette. . .
It is such a pleasing group I had to just pat it for a week. I used the second one from the right for knee pads on a pair of pants for Sadie (I will spare you the way too crappy photo of this) and then had the guts to really get into the rest. Pete and I and the girls got to meet Cia and her husband Mark a few weeks back and it was one of those times when you just click with people and feel like you have known them forever. Or at least a lot longer then, well, an hour or so, which is about how long we got to hang out. We talked fabric, music, computers, life, so many things. I could go on and on here, but really I just have to say that they are Good People and they have a rad online fabric shop, and it is definitely a wonderful place to buy fabric.
regarding the 3rd b-party, the goodie bags are almost done. I was all set to finish them up and had the girls in the car to run errands and they both fell asleep, so we ended up back home and then I fell asleep listening to them breathing in the car. so we all slept in the driveway and didn't get our errands done. but I am quite close to being done. I wrapped gifts and I am fully aware that it's supposed to rain this weekend which will mean absolute chaos because we really do not have room for all the adults and kids in the house. I need to bake the cake (and with everything else, I may be baking it at the store if you know what I mean) and, of course, Tie One On is happening. Ha! it's funny, really. (see I'm insane title above) But I need to say that I am happy and in a really good mood, not doing the freaky perfectionist thing at all, really. (she said convincingly)
