No, I didn't do any sewing over Spring Break after the family arrived. We were enjoying this too much:
And my mom and I especially enjoyed this.
Yes, I took a picture of the score sheet from our Spades game against Dean and my BIL, Joe. See, we started out in the hole, but I went mellow a couple of times and we came within one point of them before the final hand, when we set them - awesome teamwork. And I have to show off these matching aprons my mom made for herself and my niece - how cute!
And before I lose the non-sewists, can I show you the fabulous Florence and The Machine? Junior, I made you listen to Shake It Out, but I forgot about this one. I nearly ran off the road (not really) dancing to this in the car when it came on. The video's very odd (a Voodoo guy and Catholic church people? I don't get it), but close your eyes and listen to the song.
In other news, Sandra Betzina's coming next week and I have to decide on my patterns. I'm not feeling up to a button-up shirt with collar and sleeve plackets like I attempted (and failed) last year, so I guess this is certainly out of the question.
This one seems to have been discontinued already, since I couldn't find it on their website - the pic is from Pattern Review.
Same thing for this one, which I'll probably make - the top, not the dress.
Have you got a favorite Betzina Vogue top? I know there are some new ones out there. Any advice is welcome, and it's a 2-day workshop, so I could possibly do 2 easy things.
