I’m almost falling asleep at my computer today. I’ve been staying up too late at night reading The Girl with the Dragon Tatoo and I finally finished it last night but I’m paying for it today. Headachey, tired.
We’ve had a great week with lots of friends over to play and going to friends’ houses…every day in fact. Yesterday we went to Karen’s house (her E and my E are the same age…so much fun!) and later in the afternoon I had a photo shoot with what I hope will be the last pair of B3P’s (Karen’s nickname, clever eh?) I make for a while, by that I mean I need a little break after making a bajillion pairs. But I can’t get enough of the Lizzy House (Red Letter Day) fabric with the “vintage” (Gypsy Caravan) Amy Butler. Orange and purple are awesome together.
The Big Butt Baby Pant pattern is finally to a point where I consider it finished. Now it needs just a few changes here and there and it will be ready for purchase. But not today, OK?
I just discovered my Sew Mama Sew Board Member Introduction last night, the link is here if you want to go take a look. I remember when I first started blogging and I would look at the people with the Board Member Button on their blogs and think: “WOW.” So it’s hard to explain what an honor to be there now, to be asked. If you’ve been living under a rock and have never seen the site, go take a look. Their photo pool alone can keep me busy for hours, but the contributions of so many amazing sewists to their blog over the years is staggering.
The turquoise wall is surprising me. I needed a new profile picture for the SMS thing last week so I sat on my kitchen table with my sewing machine and a pile of baby pants and my camera on a tripod. I ended up with the picture you see there on the sidebar and the one that Beth used for my SMS intro (they’re also below for those of you using your readers), and man I really like how they turned out. I still had to edit the photos a little (tweaking the saturation and sharpness, upping the exposure are my typical tricks) but I’m feeling affirmed and gleefully satisfied with that color choice. Don’t be surprised if from now on I take all my pictures in the kitchen.
OK, the baby’s awake. Time to go play!
