New Addictions

2013 January 22
by elizabeth_admin

After posting yesterday about my latest project, the Kwik Sew 3167 lace panty.  I proceeded to make two more while watching tv and doing laundry.  I could have made at least 5 more than that, they’re that fast to make if you have all the material handy.  These are so quick and satisfying.  There’s nothing like a sewing quickie.  😉

All three together

All three together

 

I am definitely addicted to making panties now.  They are so comfy to wear too.  I mean really!

And speaking of addictions, I have another new one.  Since the little boy who lives with me has become Lego crazy recently, I have been corralled into helping him build his projects.  We’re not talking Duplo Legos here folks.  Nope, we’re talking full-on teeny tiny lego pieces that you step on in the dark and yelp with pain.  The real Legos.  We’ve made several projects together already.  He first started out needing a lot of help but now he’s almost making them on his own.  And somewhere along the way I have become addicted to making them.  Every time we went to Barnes and Nobel to pick up a new project, I would pass the architectural series of Lego projects and drool over them.  I especially loved the Frank Lloyd Wright Fallingwater house.  OMG!

Of course, I eventually caved and got one of the smaller projects, Big Ben.  Jack and I sat side by side creating our respective projects together.  It was a great mother/son moment.

It was when I placed the last Lego block on Big Ben that I knew I was hooked.  Completely hooked on Legos.  We went back to pick up a project for him and the Fallingwater set for me the very next day.  I spent 3 hours creating it that night.  I loved every minute of it.  I had to finish it in one sitting.  Had. To.

And it was oh so satisfying.

So there you have it.  My name is Elizabeth and I am addicted to panties and Legos.

      Dara, that’s not a “new” addiction. 😉

    I just walked back to my desk from buying my GS another set of the duplos. He is three and I have grown addicted as well. Have fun and the panties are really nice.

    I know what you mean about Legos! My daughter was gifted multiple sets all mixed up in two bins. We spent the summer sorting and reassembling the sets. I, too, am addicted! Now, off to get that Kwik Sew pattern!

    We have a big lego addiction here too! It’s the best creative thing to do with kids, no glitter or glue in the carpet, and all reusable on another day.

    Legos are awesome! So are panties! Not sure how the two go together, but they both rock! LOL

    ROTFLOL! I can see you sitting in the floor in your new panties diligently putting little Lego pieces together…

    I love Lego – I was addicted when I was a kid, and can’t wait to move the boy up from Duplo. Love the FLW, and am going to have to google UK availability of architectural lego sets.

    I like making stuff, too.

    Did you know that some places rent Lego sets by the week? This place in my neighborhood rented us Hogwarts and some Star Wars sets.

    They also gave Lego Classes. http://badmomgoodmom.blogspot.com/2007/11/what-is-lego-class.html

    The Lego-sanctioned classes are .very. good. Iris took them at Jack’s age.

    I hate to think what that last sentence will generate on the internet! Panties look lovely and I have to say I have always wondered and delighted in FLW’s work and that lego Fallingwater House is amazing.

    makes sense to me. At least the panties are quickies ;0)

    Picture me scrolling through your post thinking, “ohh cute panties,nice colours too….OMG LEGOS!” , “proper legos” too, I like it, agreed. Oh I would die if I had a Frank Lloyd Wright Fallingwater lego set! Ohh ohh, so jealous!

    Have you been to Legoland yet? When our kids were that age, we had the annual pass, and would go over a couple times/week.

    I think the great FLW might be rolling over in his grave over a Lego construction of Falling Water! Great knickers.

    Lego’s are one of the best investments you can make in a child’s future!

    Veteran mom says, now don’t even THINK about investigating the fabulous world of Playmobil.

    Legos!! My daughter actually parted with $50 of her hard-earned cash to buy the Harry Potter Knight Bus kit. She is literally waiting on pins and needles for it to arrive.

    I’m a little prone to getting obsessive, so I totally understand the panties and the Lego preoccupations! I’m a few posts late, but I do live in LA and love to meet up with other sewers, if you’re still planning on a trip north soon.

    Those lego projects are too cool! I have a little Gandalf lego figure (a one-off gift) — now I just need a Middle Earth lego set so he’ll have a home! Have fun lego-ing!

  21. January 25, 2013

    Oh those undies are super cute!
    and Lego…. ah yes I share your sentiments. My boys are both too old for lego now… NOOOOOO! I miss doing lego! That Fallingwater house is too too awesome!
