Finally! Dress is Finished

September 17, 2015

window babs dress 005I feel that I spent entirely too much time on this dress.  It sat for a few days because I couldn’t comfortably sit at my sewing table.  Also, I had to tweak it. I’m too big in some places and too small in others.  At least now I know what to do next time.  And the best part.  There are no buttons or buttonholes, no zipper, no hand sewing.  So it’s on to my raincoat.  Well.  No.  I have to make my little wall hanging for October.  Then it’s on to my raincoat.

I went to get my stitches out this morning, but doctor said no.  Now I have to wait until Monday.  He also wanted blood work and chest x-rays.  While out, I stopped at the Amish market and loaded up.  Sweetums’ eyes glazed over when he saw the bags.  He is such a Sweetums.

I was going to leave this morning, but my son wanted me to go shopping with him.  So I went to the Amish market.  I bought a stuffed pork chop for supper.  They are really big, so one if enough for two people.  I picked up some creamed spinach to go with it.  I also got ham spread, macaroni salad, cheese and cheese bread for Sweetums. 

Since it’s so cold out, I went on down to Jo Ann’s and bought a Lucy Neatby DVD.  I got ribbon feet from Viking.  They look like fun.  Darn.  Now I am thinking about sewing and wishing I had brought a machine with me.  I had just cut out a bunch of squares for a little quilt before I left home and I really want to get back to it. 

I do have my knitting.  I forgot to bring extra needles for the hat.  I am working on the decreases and finally had to stop.  So I am working on the mitered sweater.  Miters are fun to do and I’m about 3/4 finished on the body.  The pattern that I’m ‘kinda’ using has the sleeves worked separately, but I think I will work them from the shoulders down.  That will eliminate the seams.    

Still reading?  Well, I’m surprised.  I know this has been a pretty boring post so I’ll add some random pictures for you.
