You would think that a mid-week holiday falling on my normal day off would be a piece of cake. WRONG. I had an unshakable "Sunday" feeling all day yesterday, and it has carried over... Today is the Monday-est Thursday ever!
I attached and finished the waistband on my Gypsum Skirt on Tuesday night.
I fully intended to hem it on Wednesday morning before anything else, but there was an Hawaiian shirt calling my name.
"Make a Hawaiian shirt for Junah," they said. "It'll be easy," they said.
Well, okay, no one actually said that it would be easy... but how hard could it be???
Forty-five minutes of searching and watching YouTube videos about how to attach a collar to a shirt, while regularly re-reading the directions and trying to make out what's going on the photos, later...
I think I've got it. Now I'm attaching the back yoke facing and trying to find a method that is not "making a sausage."
Meanwhile, there are some nice details, I love the fabrics, and it's going to be a very nice shirt!
It was so great having Maddy home for a few days during her holiday break!
We went out to a pond party yesterday afternoon where Rod was playing. The kids had a blast in the water.
I love this photo with their big sis Jillian, especially the joy all over Ginny's face!
There were clouds skirting around us all afternoon and then all of a sudden... DOWNPOUR! We all huddled under cover until it passed, and at least it brought a little relief from the heat & humidity.
