This is how you wear a housedress. Happy Saturday one and all. I hope your weekend is full or rest, cookies and some booze if needed. My weekend is full of projects as usual. I'm planning on writing, drawing, and finishing the editing on a piece of animation. I'm also going to read some. I'm reading Cloud Atlas and I want to finish it next week. You know what I've been doing? Yes, that is my FIRST finished block. It has some minor cosmetic things that I'm planning on fixing when I get it sewn to it's cotton backing near the end of the project, but all in all I'm quite pleased with this block. Speaking of sick, I am of this project. I am very pleased with how my MnM robe came out. I didn't want to do a belt, not for a house dress. It turned to swell and after much, much hand sewing and some fighting with the collar, it's complete. Have a great Saturday!
