And then everything thing went black!

Bummer!

John just called me & our power just went out! Where was that at 6 am this morning when I was dreading my drive to work! Noooooooo you couldn’t have gone out then power could you! You just had to wait until I am almost leaving work! Damn power!

I actually took LLA’s advice & worked on something for ME over the weekend! I finished my Simp 4111 – Built By Wendy Blouse.


I made the one with no ties but longer sleeves. I had intended on wearing it today but then the temps were below 30ºF this am so I opted for warmer clothes thinking that I would be able to get a picture of it when I get home. HA!

Oh well there is something to be said for heating with wood & having a gas stove. We might be in the dark, but we will be warm & can eat!

Wow, everyone seems to be making this one lately! I can't wait to see it!

Stay warm and I hope the power comes back on soon!

Love the pattern and the idea of the longer sleeves but where do they get "sportswear" from???
Because you will look "sporty" in it?
Can't wait to see it. Lucky girl making something for yourself.
Stay warm xx

Shoot, I can't wait to see this top! I'm glad that you worked on something for yourself this weekend.

I can't wait to see it either. Isn't this the one you wanted to do at Sewing Expo? You always do such a lovely job and pick great fabrics.

On the east side of the state, many here are without power too. Plus branches everywhere! But man oh man, it is beautiful seeing those ice covered branches & last night with dusting of snow on top.

you can do what my grandma did and just leave the gas stove on to heat the house.

hey, it's an idea. i didn't say it was a good one.

Yay you! I can't wait to see it....

(In all fairness I've got to tell you that you may be the first person ever to take my advice about anything! Seriously, I'm such a trainwreck waiting to happen that not even I listen to myself!) :) But you made my day with this....
