I am sick and tired of being sick and tired! Last week, I feel down sick again. Face down, sick. I spent the week in bed. I'm just getting back to normal, or as close as I can get, lol. See, I'm starting to get a sense of humor back. Any way, I didn't even feel like sewing all the stuff I had to for our trip to the Ohio Renaissance Festival. I had to make 2 men's peasant shirts, a whole new wenches costume for me (as I've outgrown my old ones), and a whole wenches costume for Annie, consisting of a skirt, blouse and bodice. So, Saturday, as I was starting to feel really crappy and stayed in my pajamas all day, I pulled out the serger and sewing machine, and buckled down. I finally finished, the next morning. But, take a peek at the results below:
From left to right we have: Mr. S, Taylor, me, Katie, Chris, Cassi, Dylan and Annie down front.
Here, we have the girls. Ain't they cute?
And, of course, the mandatory silly pic.
Then, we have Mr. S and me.
Then we have my girls and me. Well, technically, Taylor isn't mine, but she's adopted me as her second mom.
And, speaking of my adopted daughter, she's good a sneaking pics. Can you tell how thrilled I am?
Then, my swashbuckling daughters swung into action. Here's Katie in the Safer Sword arena.
And Annie couldn't be out done.
The gown that Cassi is wearing in the first pic is one that I made about 8 years ago, for the year we sold at the festival. And ya know what? I actually enjoyed sewing, again. I haven't sewed costumes in almost 2 years.
Anyway, as I'm getting better, I'm started to get my knitting mojo back. That, and the fact that my bestest friend in the whole world, Miss PJ, told me last week that she is pregnant! After she gave up hope over 8 years ago of ever having another child. Now, I get to knit baby things! And I hope it's lots of pink things, as she already has a boy, she needs (and wants) a little girl!
Anyway! I need to get some rest, that way I can maybe knit tomorrow!
