So today I thought I would start my Skirt finally for my Sew? I knit along... The pattern I used was Simplicity 5505 style F. A 2 hour pattern.. But in all reality it didn't take 2 hours.. See I started it at 4:45 ish last night and finished it at 8 :45 this am... Well it kind did but I didn't like the way it turned out so I played The scariest part (for me) is the cutting. I don't want to mess it up so I go really slow and make sure I cut it right. The sewing goes really quick you just have to PIN PIN PIN! You also have to follow the directions! It always helps! I had it cut and the sides sewn up in like 30 min. Then I went to the next step which was add the elastic... Wait a min I thought I had some... But I couldn't find it. So I had to finish the laundry then go to good old faithful Wally world and buy some. Mean while I worked on the booty's new hat.. Look at it.. I'm on the third tier! Actually I'm further than that I've actually joined it I have to work on the joint part and then start the 4th layer. the top is going to be a lime green it looks so lovely with purple.. (and pink too) I just love green and pink and green and purple. I love it. So when I finally went and got the elastic I finished the skirt. and then tried it on I didn't like how it was laying so I took in the sides and added a few seams and this is the finished skirt. What do you think? While at Wally world I found a shirt to go with it. It's blue and plain. But I think it will go well with the skirt. I'm going to wear it tonight.
this weekend we're celebrating our 7th anniversary. and I told my DH that all I wanted was a date that he plans as a surprise for me. we were also thinking about a bed and breakfast but my DH took over and I have no idea at all what we're doing. HOW FUN. I'm super excited. I can't wait. The kiddos are going to the grandparents and we're going to have FUN! I got my DH a really cute box from esty that this lady made.. here's her shop the boxes are really cute. I got this baseball one I figured he could put baseball cards or something in it. maybe his watches and stuff like that. He's crazy about baseball. inside if for the gift giving I also put in some tickets to the oriels vs the red s0x and a titanium always band for him. it's very manly. I'm not taking any pix b/c my screen save is pix and I didn't want him to see. But after we exchange gifts i'll take some.. I do hope he likes the gifts! anyways I've gotta go get ready for the day... have a great weekend.
