Peppermint Penguin (who has no links, sorry) recently said, "Ok, so I'm supposed to be here for the sewing talk, but I find myself caught up in the pop culture". Which I’m going to assume is a compliment, although it could quite possibly be a chastisement. Yes. Definitely a compliment.
And of course makes me feel very guilty. Yes. My pathological guilt? It's all PP's fault. Good. I finally have someone to blame.
Really, I do intend to write about sewing. Honest. But May is a Bad Month and I haven't made much of anything lately. I'm hoping the holiday weekend will give me some time to work on something. Really. I will sew something. I will.
No, I am not whining and defensive. Shut up.
But I feel compelled to make at least a pretense of discussing sewing. So here is a piece of random information:
These (in a really shameless attempt to pretend this blog post has anything to do with sewing at all and not just me blatantly bragging about my children) are some photos of two of the kids' garments "in action". Yeah, that's it. ACTION SHOTS! Just in case you were wondering how these garments I make look out in the field. Literally. A field.
TLo is wearing her butterfly tunic, another version of the one seen in this post.
And The Big One is wearing her school uniform blouse as seen in this post.
These are from their riding lesson this week. The Big One is, apparently, a natural. After just four lessons she's already learning how to do the clover-leaf at a trot on Captain, The World's Tiniest Horse. I swear that child will become a barrel racing queen. If for no other reason than to totally annoy her father with her cowgirl ways.
Seriously? Why did you even read this? You didn’t, did you? I knew it. Next time: CLOTHES! Honest.
