I also have the shirt pattern for Abby ready to try out. I changed the one I made awhile ago from darts to princess seams, added a collar and stand, and placket and cuffs. I am supposed to be mass producing these shirts because she needs them for work.
I think I need to carry my camera with me when I go to the mall to take pics of pretty tops and blouses I see. I wonder if they get mad at you if you do that? Oh, well, it will probably be an 18 yr old salesclerk, and I can talk faster and walk faster than they can.
We had visiting relatives out from the Midwest this weekend, so I asked my nephew if I could measure his daughter (4 yrs old) so she could be a guinea pig for my child-sized Mexican peasant blouse pattern I am working on. These blouses are so much faster to make when you have an embroidery machine. Holy cow, I have an embroidery machine! I also remember that I used to make knit dresses for the Bean when she was about the same age, and still have some girly kid knits in the stash so I should use those fabrics up.
A random tulip seems to be blooming in the front flower bed, a nice unexpected gift of spring.
