|Very Easy, Very Vogue 8822|
I’m feeling a little bit, how do I put this? Weepy? I had a crappy mother’s day. My kids were fine, their Dad, not so much. I found myself leafing through pattern books at Joan Fabric while he, the kids and his mother were at Kiwi Yogurt. Next thing I know, I’ve got two patterns and a cart full of 50% off linen and a to-sew list with five things on it. Realistically I thought I’d probably get to only three of those. Two pairs of loose linen pants and a wrap shirt. The pants and shirt are in the same pattern, but the idea of the pants is what matters. I was planning on skipping the pattern all together and doing the pants the same way I did the kids Christmas PJ pants. Which is using an existing pair of pants to create a pattern directly on the fabric, cut and sew. Pants. Pants. Pants. Beautiful deep violet and blue paisley pants. Wouldn't this shirt be great in half price white linen?
Except, it’s Wednesday. And I’m leaving for the Catskill to attend the Sacred Pregnancy training on Friday. I have SO MUCH to do. Not to mention this will be the first time I’ve left Oscar overnight. I picked my parents up from the train station on Monday. They flew from
Hawaii to Newark
and took the train to Philly. My poor
mother was awake for something like twenty-eight hours. The two of them have been laying around trying to get back on PA time. So for obvious reasons my children are
spending their time vacillating between asking me for food, rolling around the
deck on ride-on toys and torturing each other/me (screaming). This is all to say, I’m not going to be
posting much this week, if at all. Oh, also Oscar puked on the bed and other places. I'll just be here pulling my hair out, folding clothes, washing my sheets and drinking the coffee my parents got me in Hawaii and I'll see you next week. I get back on Tuesday night. And while I can't wait to be there, I really don't want to go. KWIM?
