A Happy Birthday

Grateful and blessed to see another year! We celebrated my birthday on the lake yesterday, went shopping with my birthday loot, and came home and had cake.


mmmmmmm. cake. :)


The boy was a tiny bit cranky...

The lake was GORGEOUS and the weather perfect

 
 Son was at the front of the canoe, in control, as he likes to be
 
Daughter and husband 

 
Mmmmmm...Tin Fish

Husband and I 

Quite possibly my favorite pic <3

Birthday gifts!

  
Part Duex! (why did no one tell me I needed a thread rack!?)

Aaaaaand, I got a gift certificate to FABRIC MART!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The day was perfect, I was happy, all was right in the world!

**************************
My 3rd mini-wardrobe item is cut and in progress. This morning I sewed all the darts (6 total: bust darts, back darts, elbow darts on sleeve) and sewed the center back seam). 30 minutes of sewing goes a long way!



The plan is to have this done before the weekend; sew my pants over the weekend, and my top during the week early next week. I should be all done by the 17th. I have a bit more sewing to do for July!!!
