Alright, get your minds out of the gutter!

Okay, two things: 1. Going to meet with the Nursing Program Director tomorrow morning. 2. More pattern testing for Colette Patterns! Oh, you're all gonna luuuv it! Mwuhahahaaaa....
UPDATE: Meeting went really well. I think it's going to take me a little longer to get through it all than I had originally planned but that's okay. it's just the way the program works and I just don't want to be a full time student right now with Conner being so young. It'll all work out in the end!
Thank you guys so much for all your supportive comments!! Y'all are the best!!

Something For ME

with really bad pictures because I didn't feel like setting up my "tripod" (which is in fact a chair with books, boxes and whatever else to get it the right height). This is the Ottobre 2/2007 #2. I've made this before and I really like the fit. Coverstitch Porn! Mmmmmm...  On the last top I made I didn't do the sleeve as instructed and just did a straight hem. This time I did but I'm not really sure if I did it right. The instructions kinda confused me (not so hard these days!). I think it looks okay even though it's not lined up perfectly. Ah well..... at least it's another piece of clothing for my steadily dwindling wardrobe! Oh, I used Chez Ami fabric...again.

Another Otto outfit....

and a top for me (in the works)! I finished this up last week for Miz K. I used the same Kamomilla T-shirt and Saimi Sweatpants patterns. I didn't add the cuff to the pants since they were so long anyway and, stupid me, I forgot to gather the front on that damn neckline! Grr! I did make short sleeves for this one and used clear elastic to make the gathers. I then applied the binding over it all. Can I just say here how much I stinkin' love my coverstitch machine? The binder attachment is so frickin' awesome, too! Anyhoo, the little bow is not attached to the top but is a hair bow I made using scraps. All fabric is from Chez Ami! The top I'm making myself is from Ottobre Woman and is from the famous 2/2007 issue. I think it's design #2, the 3/4 sleeve Tee. I'm using Chez Ami fabric. Shocking, I know. I've made it once before and I wear that top so often it's really worn out now. I may make a few of these with different sleeve variations since I need tops…

And the winner is....

Well, before I announce the winner I just wanted to say THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!!! for all the birthday wishes. It warmed my heart and made my day!

I'd like to mention that I didn't use the generator because you have to PAY to use it! Sheesh! (I'm broke, remember?) So, anyway, I decided to make up my own random generator and here it is:
Yes, my random generator is still in his jammies (handmade by his grandma!) and being a bit cheesy....Randomly generating....

The WINNER! Congratulations Kim!!! Her proud moment was winning First Prize for a pair of pants she made her niece. Awesome! Just email me with your address and I'll get it out to you pronto, my dear!

Hopefully, this week will be full of more sewing and maybe I can finally get some patterns up on Etsy! Going through all of them and making sure all the pieces are there is kind of a bitch!

It's my Birthday and I'll give stuff away if i want tooooo...
