then, the power began to flicker. off and on. off and on. every time it came back on, the kids would cheer and i'd put the pedal to the metal. i tried so hard to stitch it out. but the final time the lights went out, and didn't come back on? i hung my head and smiled. of course.
I Had Plans.
and the universe, well, she can't help but mess with you when you think you can Make Plans.
kind of like this weekend. I Had Plans to knock out a lot of sewing- i am testing a pattern for someone - it's super cute and top secret but i can't wait to show you the whole thing!!
anyways, not to complain (even though i do it so well!) i have gotten a little bit done. emma's getting taller but not growing anywhere else, so a lot of her jeans are too short. the next size up is baggy around the waist, and she does not like any "poofiness" there. belts are a pain. so i decided to quickly lengthen a pair of her shortest jeans with a ruffle. easy peasy.
i'm still hopeful that i can get that binding done this weekend - even though it's slow going, due to this.
i really wish i knew how to prevent those cracks! they take forever to heal! anyone have any tried and true remedies? i've tried the liquid skin stuff, and bandaging with neosporin. it's frustrating, because this winter has been super mild, so i'd hoped i wouldn't get them. ah well. there i go planning again...
