I have been sewing, a little. I'm making a dress, which was inspired by this dress made by Suzanne from Adventures in Dressmaking. But I ran into a problem with sizing, and now I have to take apart half the bodice (including some topstitching). Rather frustrating.
The other thing keeping me from sewing and crafting is the massive mess that is my crafting area. We needed to use my table outside for the kids' birthday party, so I haven't been able to organise it yet like I've been wanting to. This past week I was getting ready for the party, and this week I'll be getting ready for vacation, but after that, I'll be able to get back to my creative endeavours.
This is the cake I made for the party. I was going to just make cupcakes, but I ran out of muffin papers so we ended up with a little cake too.
The kids enjoyed it. Nick more than Juli. She just licked the whipping cream off her cupcake then gave it to her brother.
The kids got a play structure for their birthdays, which was a hit at the party. Even for the two lovebirds squished at the top of the ladder.
