He just laughed at me. How rude.
Seriously though, it's been a rough week. I've been sick, the kids have been sick, the house looks like we've been sick.
I'm finally feeling better through, tired but better. Hey, I even managed to finish sewing E's winter coat, which is a good thing considering it's been hoovering around 65 all day.
E's coat was a mess to make, I enjoyed making it but it felt like a mess. I drafted my own pattern, used two layers of fleece for warmth, an old micro suede dress shirt of the hubby's to line it and some super cute monster/peace printed corduroy to accent the (cheaper) green corduroy. I do plan to make baby girl a coat in the next couple of weeks so I'll try to pull the mess together and post a tut at that point.
The whole she-bang! E's in bed so no modeling pic's :(
