I had surgery, June 17th, and have just been released to full activity. We spent yesterday, Sunday, in the E.R. (only a total of 2 hours) with my oldest son who tried to take out a metal door frame at our church. I just have to mention that we have a wonderful E.R. at Seton S.W. Hospital, we have been there too many times and they are so wonderful, professional, and caring....not to mention it doesn't take hours to see the doc. We have has tummy bugs, buggy bugs, injuries and the like keeping us from getting our Summer Bucket List knocked out, but we keep chipping away at it.
Somewhere in all that fun I snatch a minute or two to put a few stitches in. I am working hard at keeping focused on getting a few of my WIP's completed. I am turning a binding on one baby quilt, half way done quilting second and woefully staring at the four other tops that need quilting.
Lately I have also been itching to try my hand at making a dress for myself, with out a pattern. I have mentioned before....I love vintage patterns but hate the tissue I have to wrestle when cutting them out. I would love to make a late 50's inspired sundress or house dress. My kids and I were watching a new Disney made for TV movie, "Teen Beach Movie" the other night and this dress is one I dream of making for myself.
This is the best picture I could find of this orange dress, I studied it all through the movie trying to map out the pattern in my head. So much to SEW so little time.
