Quick and Dirty (Not to Mention Ugly)

I cut out the quick and dirty muslin for the Maggy London dress I'm making for my daughter. Do you not love the charming fabric? At one time, like about 12 years ago, I was going to use this with a coordinating fabric in a twirly dress for Jennifer. I saw it made up a Joann...I swear it was cute. Really.

Haven't really had a chance to sew it up, though. My dad's health issues are once again my top priority. We were going to do the first fitting tomorrow, but between another trip to the hospital and paid work that needs to be completed, I'm probably going to have to cancel again.

At any rate, posting will probably be irregular for the next week or so. Once again, your prayers for my dad's health would be appreciated.

I am so sorry to hear his health is an issue again. I know this must be exhausting for you as well. You will be in my thoughts and prayers.

Thanks, ladies. We're waiting to hear if he'll be headed back to surgery tomorrow. I posted more details on my weight loss blog, if you're interested. Paula's Journey

Thinking about your dad.
When I see fabric like that muslin in my stash(way too often it seems!), I shake my head and think that maybe I should buy fabric only with definate sewing plans and time! But what fun would that be? And then what would we use for muslins 12 years later?

Well the sad thing is, I did have plans for that fabric. I fact, I I still have the pattern in my stash. It survived the great pattern stash purge of '07. I'd like to make it for my granddaughter...but with different fabric.

Okay, I'm just catching up with blog reading lately! My you've been busy, Paula! I'm very envious :) . I love your 30/30 idea. Maybe when I'm off my hiatus that will be my goal.

I hope all goes well with your dad.

And yeah, gotta love that "what was I thinking?" fabric. I've purged plenty of it in my lifetime!
