So, exciting things are occuring at Chez Carley this weekend. We are nearly TOTALLY un-packed, and b/c of this, I am able to get back into sewing!! I did manage to get a little bit done over the last few weeks, but I'm out of diaper bag and little purse orders and am being brave. I signed up for an apron swap!!! I stumbled across this website (um, I don't have the URL on this computer, I'll post it later) a few weeks ago, and have been terribly nervous to join. These ladies all seem so very good at what they do!!! However, not to be put-off, I joined a mini-swap. I'm making an apron for XXXX XXXX. (oh, it's a secret. So I can't tell!!!). But, she has a cute kid, and I'm supposed to make this whip-ass apron for this adorable child, PLUS, send some cool kid-friendly recipes along with it. The aprons aren't due out until April, but I plan to finish mine this weekend (have I mentioned I am excited about sewing again!!). I had some fabrics picked out, but it turns out the fabric I chose is not going to work for this particular apron, so darn it all, I have to do some fabric shopping this weekend. What a shame. ;->
Also, I have no (that's right) NO social plans this weeend. Not one. Well, I have some TONIGHT, but that doesn't count. So, I might actually get some stuff done! With the house is such good shape, I find myself with little to keep me busy (aside form the usual reading, hanging out, etc.). I can't get out into my garden yet, as it's unreasonably cold (ok, Amma in WV with -14 might not think we have "cold" weather, but for Raleigh, it's COLD!!), so inside projects it is!!!
I also need to take some more pictures of the house. I'll try to squeeze that in too. Good times!!
