Just went out and got a whole bunch of new fabric!! I'm hoping I have enough to make little man a robe and two sets of jammies. The jammies will include a top, shorts and pants. I also found a super cute apparel fabric that I am hoping to use on myself, just not too sure for what yet. I was able to get 3 new patterns, all on sale! Two of the patterns are for me, some dresses and jammies for me! The other pattern is a super cute romper for little man, I'm thinking of doing a July 4th outfit for him with that pattern. I'm so excited!!!
I ran into my sewing teacher today and was able to show off pictures of my skirt, I was so happy that I could show it to her. The classes that I took from her have made it possible for me to create my skirt and hopefully soon some jammies for my little one! I'm hoping to be able to post some pictures soon of my progress soon. I'm washing the fabric right now, just have to wash the red fabric next. I'll update later.

I have finished my skirt!!! I can actually wear it too, which makes me so happy. Its not perfect, but I'm so proud of myself for finishing it and doing well enough to wear it. The picture is a little blurry, but the camera didn't like the mirror.
I guess I'm doing well enough, my sister asked me to make a purse for her! It was one that I made in my last class I took, I was hoping that she would take the class but I don't know if she'll end up taking it. Even if she does it'll be a while since they are busy with their new house being built. So I told her to get me the fabric and I would start working on it.

Today, since I have no new fabric to play with, I am going to play in my scrap room and work on my 2010 book. I miss playing in my scrap room so when Hunter goes for his nap I'll go and play!

Sew-a-long time! I have become part of a zippered skirt sew a long on FB. I'm just starting out, and I'm really hopeful that I'll be able to pull it out. I am really loving the fabric that I picked out, I chose fabric that wasn't expensive but I would totally wear it. After my classes at Joanns I have gained a little more confidence in my sewing abilities!
I am doing view B, not too short but not a full length one either. If I can somewhat get making clothing down I would be super happy! I have my eyes on a few other patterns that I would love to add to my wardrobe. I did just pick up two more, a scrubs pattern and a pattern for PJs for Hunter. He really needs some jammies that fit him better, his pants are looking a little short.

Just took my little man for his shots last week and he took it like a champ...well afterward, he cried as he was getting them. But he recovered fast because we went out and played in the backyard as soon as we got home. And all was forgiven.

I have started my new job. I am scrubbing an L&D department at the local hospital, I am still adjusting but I really like it. I have kept my other job so I can keep up with my skills in other areas of surgery. L&D means 12 hour days so I don't get to see much of my baby on days I work, but it gives more hours in fewer days. So pros and cons to each. I love being closer to home!!! This job is only 5 min away and the other is at least 45 min from the house, so especially with gas prices going up, up, up and even higher it is much nicer not to fill up every other day.

Hope to post more pictures of my progress Thursday of my skirt! I am going to keep working!
