LOL, must clarify I guess. Dh is worried because he’s afraid I’m ready to start pushing the issue of Grandchildren. ('cmon, I just turned 50...my youngest natural child is going to be 22 and my youngest stepdaughter is 17....we just got through a year with 3 in college...you didn't honestly think I meant I wanted more kids did you?) But, I’ve been whining about the fact that by the time we do have G-children I don’t want to be off sailing on the other side of the world. Frankly, dh would be happy to be on the other side of the world and see grandkids once a year, like his grandparents saw him. I forsee that this may be an Issue.
Blog surfing: found this on the Dress A Day blog July 28th entry. Her blog is too much fun, and if you are a PR fan or just love dresses, you really should check her out. Meanwhile, this is undoubtedly the most ingenious, if not the most wearable dress I've ever seen. Christin, did you get to see this in person?
Finish the self patterning fair isle sock yarn baby cardi that was a gift from Kim
Wardrobe refashioning, building: Rebecca (Fibermom) has posted yarn and fabric pics, very well coordinated I might add, along with the outline for SWAP. Another give and receive exchange you are thinking? Non, mes amies, SWAP is an anacronym for Sewing With A Plan. I'm liking it. Last year I did a really really thorough closet cleaning. BAsically cleaned myself right out. I have 1, read that as One, pair of pants left to take me into fall that I did not dispose of, two jackets that I will wear, and several sweaters, tops. Zip, zero, zilch on the skirt and dress end of things, nothing. This was to force myself to replace and make new. I have fabric - whoa do I have fabric. Look in the coming weeks for my own version of a Plan. A sales manager I had once used to sing the refrain "Plan Your Work and Work Your Plan". Man how we hated that refrain. But in this case, I'm thinking it's a great idea.
