This is what it looked like a little before 7:00 AM here today. No this is not what I woke up to… it was still very dark when I got up (and stayed up) today at 4:20 AM. Since being sick I haven’t stayed up after making coffee, setting up breakfast, and packing a lunch for The Engineer so he can head out the door by 5:30. I’ve gone back to bed and gotten up closer to 6:30… when the dog decides she’s waited long enough to eat and makes me get up.
I was upstairs sewing when the person on the local radio mentioned that it was a pretty sunrise and everyone should go look. So I did… and I’m sharing it with you.
Oh yeah and this… I’m heading up next week to MA to work at Southampton Quilts during the Massachusetts Shop Hop. They have a 50’s theme this year… so I was thinking about making a circle skirt to wear. I found some cute 50’s housewife-ish floral fabric – figured I could cut it up and use it in a quilt when I was done. But before using the good stuff – I wanted to try a sample out. Pulled out another floral I had – made up the skirt – put elastic in the waist – put a turned under hem on it.
Really cute skirt… except that when you put a circle skirt on someone who’s short and
a little ‘roundish’… well…
Think clown cars, trapeze swings, and fishnet clad ladies riding galloping horses in circles… all I need is some rope and wooden stakes to anchor it down.
I’m thinking a trip to Christopher & Banks is in my future… I still have a gift certificate!
