Back After The Vacay

I hope everyone had a wonderful long week! I must say that it’s wonderful to be back to our ‘normal’ routine around here – although, I’m still feeling a bit sleep deprived after all day cooking, Black Friday shopping (yes, I was crazy and went shopping early in the morning, although, surprisingly, fabric shopping wasn’t one of them!), and an out of town trip for the weekend! Consequently, I haven’t made much of a dent into my sewing pile, but I did manage to work on Easton’s pajamas:

I almost have two tops finished. I had to re-cut the sleeves and neck, arm, and leg bands because the fabric just didn’t seem to have enough stretch – I’m not sure I could have gotten his head through the top of the shirt, let alone his arms and feet! Fortunately, I had another red in my stash, but I don’t like the color as much (it’s more of a bright cherry red instead of a dull dark red like the pants) so the sleeves no long have a contrast to them. I thought these might be the cutest of the bunch, but I’m not as thrilled with how they’re looking at the moment.
Hopefully, I’ll be able to spend some time with my sewing machine tonight – after several days away from it, I’m missing it! What did everyone else do over the holiday?

    I ate too much. I’ve been bitten by the baking bug and baked two pies and two batches of cookies from scratch. I still have a key like pie that I want to try! Next time I bake I’m gonna package some up immediately in a cute bag or tin can and give it away and save the rest for the kids. Not too much sewing got done as planned. I’ve got 3 skirts and 2 jumpers in the works that I need to finish. And I seriously need to jump on the holiday gift for my kids classes so I can possibly make dresses for my girls for Christmas afterwards. So much to do and so little time. Lol
