time and more time

Roxanne's dress
I got a few things finished this past weekend. I got to sew a little, even though Roxanne was too busy getting ready for the end of the semester. I got one of the t-shirt dresses put together. It still needs to be hemmed, and I think Roxanne was wanting some embellishment on it. Mine will be less embellished, but I did add pockets. Yeah, love me some pockets.

look what's decorating the ironing board!
I also got the stack of fabric baskets made up. They aren't perfect, but I'm VERY happy with how they turned out. The next batch - and there WILL be a next batch - will be better, because of the practice of these. I also think making them is going to be great practice for putting together the shopping bags that are still on the to-do list. I could go crazy on these baskets. I feel like the bags will probably be similar. Useful, cute, and a creative outlet, too!

One thing that I would like to do, but I just can't see how, is do a kid's week sew-along. I just can't dedicate an hour every day to sewing. My evenings are not like that. I would rather dedicate that hour to the kid than sewing for her. SO, I will make her some new pj's and shorts and tops... and maybe even some of those this week, but not in an hour a day... You should see the fabric she's gonna get summer jammies from...ooooweeeee.

On top of all that, I got a new computer. Yay! Now I don't have to fret that all that stuff will be lost. I don't have to curse because the dang thing is hanging up again, and I can barely play words with friends. (of course I play words with friends, and my cousin Eric beats the snot out of me every game! lol) Life is good, even if it IS Monday.

It sounds like a whole pile of "WIN"! Pockets and baskets and jammies and a computer! What a great way to go into the end of the school year!
