My DS and GS, he wants to be in every picture, with them damn pj's on.
Gwen and I, she's going to kill me she told me her hair was a mess but she took the picture anyway. We've know each other for 20+ years so I'm sure she will forgive me. Gwen is deaf, I'm making the sign for "I love you" not the rocker sign lol.
My DD, she said I didn't have permission to post her picture on my blog, who does she think
Okay now for the sewing, remember I was breaking my own rule about the "half of something" and I don't know if I like this or not so please chime in and reassure me of my choice. I think it looks okay in the picture maybe I just have to get comfortable wearing it. I made some mistakes too, the jacket/shrug pattern had mid length sleeves and I wanted long sleeves so I added several inches about 4 too many so now I have cuffs.
I really like the way this top came out, it too didn't have long sleeves and I knew that I wanted to wear it with a turtleneck, (it is winter) so I lengthened the sleeves and thankfully I got it right. I did add two darts to the back because it was way to loose around the neck, you can see how loose it is here and that's after adding the darts. I was going to add a seam down the back to take it in but I like the loose fit and wanted to keep that so I went with the darts and you can't tell that it wasn't part of the pattern. I like it with the turtleneck and scarf. You must accessorize.
Now I only have the fleece jacket left to make, I may not have any time to sew tomorrow but I still should have it finished by the end of the weekend. Although there have been a few snags I'm pretty happy with the way these projects have come out. I'm starting off 2009 with a bang.
