Stop the presses: my child napped long enough for me to COMPLETE A PROJECT. And now he might be napping long enough for me to blog about it. Heady stuff. And it only took 5 months!*
Granted, it wasn't much of a project. I had sacrificed a pair of old J. Crew jeans to patch some of Alex's (they always wear through at the crotch--[insert your own joke here]). They never did much for me as pants, but perhaps they'd make a better skirt? I won't bother telling you what I did, because I think we all tackled this one when we were in high school. I had to re-do the seams a few times to eliminate some unflattering bulges, but otherwise it was a quick and dirty job.
After Pete woke up I noticed that the thread in the machine was just
the right color for his new smocked romper from Grammie, and he was
gracious enough to allow me to make buttonholes and sew the buttons
on. So here we both are in our FOs, me and my obliging co-pilot. I
might whack the skirt off a bit; gotta give it a test-walk.
*Note to the Gods: I have no illusions about this ever happening again. Please do not strike me napless.
