Hello my dear and lovely readers! I do apologize for being so sporadic about posting to the blog lately. I was finishing up with school and getting things ready for Christmas has gotten the best of me. I am still not done with my Christmas shopping for the year, and I am normally the type who wants to be done shopping before December. I am going to battle the mall on Monday so if you never hear from me again you know I pepper sprayed someone over a parking spot and was promptly hauled away by the mall cops.
You see, there are going to be lots of finished objects in my life soon. These sort of finished objects are not of the fabric variety though. Instead, there will be mountains of cakes, cookies, and candy and the sweet smell of butter and sugar will be pouring from the kitchen.I love to bake just as much as I love to sew, and I tend to go overboard with the Christmas baking and cooking every year. Currently, there is a stack of about 12 cookbooks sitting in my bedroom floor just waiting to be used.
I did have grand hopes of stitching up a new apron to don while doing all my festive baking, and I even went so far as it cut it out. Sadly, unless the days before Christmas magically contain 36 hours each, I won't be stitching it up. I will pull out last year's Christmas apron, throw on some pearls and feel fabulous while I sling flour and egg shells around. Anyone want to volunteer to whip it up for me? It only requires stitching on three packs of 1/4" bias tape.
But, what I really want to celebrate Christmas with is a new me made dress. More specifically, I want the long sleeved version of Simplicity 2180 in plain back. I even have the perfect fabric, er bedsheets, to make it out of.
Do any of you love completely impractical shoes as much as I do? Tell me your thoughts.
