Now, I am not against footed pajamas. They are fine and dandy. But…Some things were never meant to have closed off feet…
And one of those things is jeans…Do these look a little long to you??? I have some jeans made by this brand (Lucky Brand) But these are the “long” variety. I have kind of short legs for my height, so long jeans didn’t work out that well. But lo and behold, this is why scissors were made! A few brief snips later, and after a few seams on the trusty Dressmaker, I had myself some great jeans.
Of course, great jeans need a great outfit, so I went on a closet rummage. The result was pretty good I think, and all in all I’m pretty pleased.
So here’s to a great pants repair. Cute, functional, comfy…Yeah, can you tell I’m happy with them?
So, just so you all know, I’ve had bronchitis the past week. It’s been rough, full of short nights for both me and my mother, and it’s grating on us both. But, the show must go on.
Dance dress rehearsals wait for no girl, bronchitis or no, so yesterday we ran up to the doctors, got a diagnosis, and then loaded me up on antibiotics and cough suppressant. I went to dress rehearsal today, and did fairly well considering everything that’s happened. Performance tomorrow, and I pray that everything works out.
We’ve all had those projects that we started…And they won’t end…
I’m being haunted by one of those “phantom” projects right now. It seems to me that no matter how many of the Frances quilt tops I get done,there’s just another one to smile evilly at me needing to be sewn together. AGH! This is driving me crazy! I’ll push through, I just might be crazy by the end.
Funny moment of the week: At dance, one of the guys (The prince) Was being “Killed” by the evil wizard. It’s a kind of scary piece of choreography actually, and it involves the prince being thrown around and lifted into the air by the wizard and his minions as a sacrifice.The wizard has a very intimidating “face” (A.K.A. mask) made by my mother.
Unfortunately, ballet is kind of dangerous, and as the prince was being put down, a minion got in the way, the prince slipped, and it ended with the prince in the bathroom trying to get the split above his eye to stop bleeding. Rather an interesting class….
