And on it goes...

It's been sewing, sewing and more sewing. And I don't even have a finished shirt to show for it. These little heirloom shirts with their adorable piped cuffs are trying to wreck what remains of my sanity, so I took a little break today and cut out a sundress for me. I need to finish the armholes with bias tape and hem the bottom and I'm done! Maybe I'll stay up late tonight and make it a one-day wonder. I had planned to have it done by Monday so that I could wear it on our trip to Biltmore (yes, a little one on one time with dh-how will we manage to converse with no interruptions?!?) so I'm way ahead of that game. Almost makes up for the shirts. Actually, nothing could.

OK, I'm done now.

Last night in a desperate effort to regain some balance, I dug through the stash and found some Border Leicester and Mohair. (Don't worry-I split up that batch into two pots, 'k? There was plenty of room, trust me)

I dropped a good amount into my dyepots and threw in some Easter Egg tabs.

This next one is simply NOT as green as the pic-don't know what happened there...probably the shirts shifted their attack to the camera...

Neat, huh?! ?Nothing like a little color to get your smile back in place!

I did a lot of heirloom sewing when I smocked for the girls...that's some tedious stuff..

Ahh! it's the attack of the giant blob 'O Leicester! Looks like you tamed it well.
