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!
