Sew Happy!

Sorry for the cheesy pun but I'm sew happy that this week is over! This week was just plain silly and to try to recoup I'm instating a "NO COMPUTER" policy for this weekend. I don't know if I'll be able to do it but I'm sure going to try my damndest. What am I going to DO without the computer this weekend you ask? Well, first I'm going to tackle the mountains of dirty diapers that need to be washed, then I'm going to do some cooking and some eating, perhaps do some knitting, plan a Valentine's party for my daughter's class, I'm definitely going to read and I may try out one or both of these new patterns I just downloaded. (KwikSew 3669 and KwikSew 3659)

I'm in desperate need of some new clothes. Even though I've lost almost all of my pregnancy weight, almost none of my pre-pregnancy clothes fit. My body has changed you guys. I've always been a plus size, curvy gal but there are new curves where I didn't think one could have curves. My husband and I are on a major money diet right now so I've decided I need to put some of this fabric I've got to good use. I haven't had the best success with sewing clothes for myself in the past (again because of the curviness) but I'm really ready to give it another shot...I'm seriously tired of my baggy sweatpants. Does anyone have good suggestions for learning to sew clothes that fit?

Alright, so after 5 tonight I'm saying adios for the weekend and if you catch me online after that...Please scold me! Hopefully I'll be back Monday refreshed with lots accomplished! Wish me luck!

Oh yeah, the above illustration is available in the shop. I think it's going to become some project bags soon too...Wouldn't that be fun!?
