So, I'm still alive and kicking, just don't have anything blogworthy to post about. We spent a 4 day weekend in Houston last week. I did do some knitting but that was only to add a few extra inches to the bottom of this vest, not that you can tell much of a difference. When we got home there was a box from Amazon.com waiting for me with 4 recently purchased books inside. I read through 3 of them in the past week. I tend to be a little obsessive about reading and get very little else done, which is why I try to space out my book buying/library visiting. Add to that the fact that it's spring and I bought a bunch of plants that need planting and, well, there hasn't been much sewing going on.
Here's a tunic I cut out before the Houston trip and have worked on a little this past week. It's 110 from Burda's 2/2009 magazine. All I lack is the simple sleeves and hem, although if you look closely you can see I botched the trimming of the bottom hemline. The sides are longer then the CF and CB. I think it will be fine in the end, just a little shorter then originally planned.
This is the first year in a long while that I haven't made myself an Easter dress. Boo. The weather is suppose to be perfect too. Oh well. We're off to buy some mulch and spend the day in the yard. Happy Easter and Resurrection Day to you all!!!
