more sewing done
This is the quilt I made for Ashley for her birthday. It was actually supposed to be for her first birthday, but somehow I goofed and missed it. I did make her a dress or two, I think, but she didn't have a quilt that fit any more. Now she does.
These are the boxers I made for my son in law for his birthday. He laughed when he saw them. He let the boys pick out the first pair he wore. Kenny picked the two-colored fish ones. I did get a message from Abby that he said they are extremely comfortable and soft. That, I'm sure, comes from using quilt-shop-quality fabric.
This is my gray-and-white set. Hubby really likes the look of these. They are really comfy, but the foldover elastic hasn't got the same stretchability as the old fashioned elastic you put in casings, so the whole set is a bit more relaxed than the first one is. Still, I really like it. It's nice to have stuff that fits.
I have another bra cut out now. I dyed the pieces and they are almost dry. This is the smaller pattern that I had ordered because my size didn't come in the smaller cup. I had to add 2 inches to the band in the back. I did it in several places so hopefully it won't be really obvious where I did the alterations.
I have Jimmy's quillow cut out, and - I think - 5 shopping bags made of denim to take grocery shopping with me. I got 5 bags out of 2 yards, and the fabric was only $2 a yard at Chinamart, so they cost me $0.40 cents apiece plus thread and labor. Not bad! I'm just tired of all the plastic. We throw away so much stuff in this society...
My tummy has been upset tonight. I stayed up till it settled down so I didn't keep hubby awake with getting up and down to go to the bathroom. Now that it's pretty much quiet, and I'm pretty much half frozen, I think I'll go to bed.
A blessed Easter to you all.
