Sewing updates::

Just finished a bed-sheet Pj pants for mama, Yay! Oh no wait a second, yea right, I still need to put an elastic in, I ran out. Rephrase. Almost finished a bed-sheet Pj pants for mama, half yay!

Also started a new project and cut some stuff, and wont tell you what it is until I'm done to keep the suspense going *on going drum roll, until the curtains are open* (It'll be a while I must say, how about a little hint, it's something I've never sewn before..I know I started sewing about what a week back?... Oh well!)

And I bought some fabric on sale a while back and received it yesterday. Lots of possibilities. And photos will be shared once the sun comes out.

Un-sewing related:: we made cardboard slippers this morning, and they tore about 5 minutes after Mei wore them...Expected. Fun while they lasted though! ( and making)

On a different note, I really need to post that banana bread recipe I promised...Tomorrow? No promises this time!

All I have to say is I love the stripey (not a word, I know) tights:)

The slippers and the tights are cute. In family fun magazine this month there was a thing on doing sandals out of keds. They were cute, and I was thinking we will do some.

Kate, don't you wish they have it in grown up size. I know they have it somewhere but I haven't lucked out yet, Plus I don't know if I would have the courage to wear this out of Halloween season if you know what I mean!

UmmLayla, The slippers bottom part were supposed to be cut from corrugated cardboard, which meant I would have to go in our scary dark basement part and fish some out, so I settled for some cereal box cardboard. Hey, anything to avoid a scare:)
