This weekend started out with a list of things to take care of. You know how that goes, don't you? You start thinking about what needs to get done, what you want to get done, the other things you should get done ... and then you do something else! Well, a new skirt sounded like more fun. I used New Look Pattern # 6470 and some fabric I bought at JoAnn's. The skirt has an elastic waist and separate pieces added to bottom to make the flounce. It goes together pretty easily. I'm happy with the fabric and the fit. That's a rare combination for me.
Another thing ... my DH has a new employee at work. He and his wife just had a baby boy. I wanted to make something for them, but didn't think I'd have enough time. I started on this little blanket and should be able to finish it tonight. One side is flannel and the other side is cotton. I serged around the pieces and am now crocheting an edging with #10 crochet cotton. I'll let you know how it turns out. I think I should add a little extra to this gift, like a new outfit or keepsake for the baby ... or a donation to the college fund. I'll think about it a little longer.
Ok, I'm off to work on the list of things that need to get done. Later!
