A Boy and His Toy

Ed loves a good toy!

Tuesday, March 23, 2010 this too bright?

That's what I asked The Husband when I sashayed into the room to model my new robe made from M5248.  What do you think?

His eyes nearly popped outta his head, but I think, I hope he was just funnin' me.  I like it but realized as I was standing there modeling it that it didn't have pockets.  I'm not a real pocket gal, except when it comes to my bathrobe.  A girl's gotta have a place for her kleenex in the morning.

So, I guess it's back to the sewing room to add pockets..........................

"Nothing is so fatiguing....................... the eternal hanging on of an uncompleted task" - William James

Butterick 5331 is still not complete and my desire to finish it, even though so close,  is waning  more each day. So I am putting it aside for now.

It's a shame really. I put a lot of work into, here is the inside.

Every seam is bound with bias I made myself. It looks great but ...well...I just don't know.  Time to move on.
