Feeling a bit miserable. . .
Dad made waffles and bacon this morning, yum!
Again I finished my sewing goals for the day I finished cutting out the fabric for the night gown pattern. Then family came over, and had fun in the lake and we had some BBQ. It was delicious......but now I'm hungry again. lol
I wanted to get started on sewing the night gown but first I just didn't feel that good today at all, so kind of lazed around, and secondly as I suspected when I read the directions I need to go buy lace before starting cause I need to add it to the yoke before adding it to the bodice and that's pretty much the first step, with exception of safe stitching the nursing openings. I will probably safe stitch them tomorrow and see if I can get a ride over to Needle Nook, I know Joann's was open today but they are limited on laces. And since Needle Nook specializes in underwear, bras, and night gown fabrics and notions they have a ton to choose from, many hand dyed so that they match many undergarment fabrics in their stores, so they have a huge selection of colors to choose from when it comes to lace. So I'll go over there. Plus I need some stretch elastic lace for the arms of the night gown as well. The pattern calls for both elastic and lace, I'm sure not many people have as much access to the elastic lace as we have here with Needle Nook is probably the reason for calling for both, but since Needle Nook has such a large selection of that too it won't be a problem, and will be easier and cheaper to kill two birds with one stone.
