This week has been wild. Here on the eastern seaboard we got a major storm. It's caused lots of changes in the routine. I've been at home with 4 stir crazy kids so little blogging has gotten done. I'm still here though. I have been stitching and knitting away to past the time. I'm very excited because tonight I'm taking a quilting techniques class at a local quilting shop. I think it will be helpful as I embark on my massive single girl's quilt project. I'll have to let you know what I learn. Speaking of sewing, I made a dress for O. where the pattern called for hand pleating. I reluctantly embarked on learning a techniques I had long avoided and while my results were fine, I don't think I'll be retiring my ruffler/pleater any time soon in favor of pleating by hand. Anyway, that's what I've been up to.
BTW, still working on my slipcover. I got the initial fitting done, but am working on doing more tailoring. I haven't been able to work on them much with the weather and the kids all home...too many little helpers, lol. It's coming along though.
