Things that made me smile today.....
- Accomplishing an amazing 2 hour declutter clean-up
- Walking until my thighs ached
- being with friends
- finishing another Magic School Bus book with the kids
I was very tired this morning again. Although I have managed to get at least 7.5 hours of sleep for the last three nights, this feeling of exhaustion made me grumpy. I finally decided that maybe my allergies were just going haywire and it was time to take a Sudafed, and what do you know? About an hour later I felt much better. So I went at the house, putting away all the clutter that drives me batty, and in about 2 hours I finished. That left me just a little time to cut out a sewing project. I could not wait to sit at my sewing machine again.
This is the Nirunaru pinafore dress from Ottobre in a size 86 from the Spring 2008 issue. I lengthened the tunic by 6 inches, and I was actually thinking about adding 5 rows of elastic shirring to the bottom hem, but once she tried it on, I decided I liked it just as it is. It is light and airy, and she really enjoyed wearing it.
I love the colors on this fabric. It looks really good on her, and I am hoping that I can get the pants made this weekend.
After finishing her shirt, I met with some friends and walked. It was hot, and it was hard to finish, but we did it. I think we are all doing a good thing, and even though I hate getting out there, I am really glad that we are sticking to this. It is fun to be together and it is healthy. It is good for us in more then one way.
