not dry yet

So, Drab's taking her sweet time drying off. I flipped her over last night and back again this morning. She's just a wee bit damp and will probably be wearable tonight, but I don't think she'd go well with my pjs. Since the weather's going to be a washout here this weekend, I think pics will have to wait. Maybe I'll get my buttons by the time the sun comes back.

I've been working on Serrano and have re-read the pattern and am making everything work just like the designer intended and clearly stated in the pattern. It amazes me how someone with a college degree in literature can misread something so simple.

I'd post a pic of the turned hem and two rows of eyelets by the color is off and too bright and fuzzy with the old kodak. Again, I need to call polaroid about a repair.

My weekend's not quite shaping up to what I had been planning. The other day M-i-L offered to babysit B on Saturday night. Hubby and I were thinking dinner and a movie (Piderman 3, actually). Now, we're going to go sit out at Shea tomorrow afternoon and see if our sad sack Yankees will actually get to play a game against the Mets. I should have pushed more forcefully for just dinner and a movie. I'm not going to have any sewing time tomorrow and I really want to make 3 yards of this into a skirt.
Or a wrap dress from this:
If I were to receive the pattern and the fabric I ordered.

Maybe Sunday.

Oh nice fabric! I'm definitely in the mood to sew but must race through my Monkey socks first and get some pal packages ready for mailing.

Waiting sucks >:P

The fabric really is pretty! Yeah... that's the sucky thing about blocking...I just keep wandering in and touching the project, hoping it feels dry...

I love the wrap dress fabric. Very pretty.

Funny about going out, the change of plans, wanting dinner, etc. We went out last night and trekked into the city. What a mistake. It's so expensive and so long commuting. DH will be hard pressed to get me on a date in the city.

Hope you get your sewing time!!
