On the streets of NYC: My sister wearing something I made her!!!
As you know, Friday night, I finished Thor’s pants (well, not really, but I’ll explain that soon). So on Saturday, because I’m an impatient person, I wanted to bring them right over for a fitting on my nephew. My sister wasn’t at home, but Jack and I ran into her on the streets of Manhattan as we went on our way for the day’s errands. And wouldn’t you know it, but she was wearing the necklace I made her. I was so excited that I almost missed that Katie was wearing the dress I made her too! If I had been wearing something I made, it would have been a totally SEWN day! But alas, I wasn’t.
Here’s the proof that my sister actually wears things I make for her…
I’m so pleased! Doesn’t it look fabulous on her?!? I love it and now want to make one for myself too. 🙂
As for Thor’s pants, they were a little too loose in the waist and about 2.5 inches too long, so I will make those alterations and deliver them forthwith. They looked awfully cute on him though.
And a bonus shot of Jack who got his haircut this Saturday. His new look is a dramatic departure from what we have been trying to do. Since he started school, he’s wanted to grow his hair long. I guess most of his male classmates have longish hair. I prefer little boys to have short hair, but it’s not my head and I appreciate that he’s his own person. It’s been a little frustrating growing it out though, because every time we go for a trim, the barbers always cut too much off. Annoying! Anyway, this time, out of nowhere, Jack announced while in the barber chair, that he wanted to cut his hair short. I thought to myself, “This can only end with crying.” Surprisingly though, he loves his new haircut and so do I.
I didn’t sew this weekend folks. I actually read a book instead. I haven’t read in a long time because sewing has taken over my life. It felt good to read again and I think I will incorporate it back into my life again. Also, I want to be a good model for my son as a voracious reader (as I used to be). But tonight, I’ll be back in the sewing saddle!
Happy sewing everyone.
