Hi there. Guess I went MIA there for a little bit. I left you on a bad note, but it's not been all that bad since. I mean, it's been a really tough week - one of those weeks when random things pelt you from all directions. And I'm tired and I just didn't feel like I wanted to say anything nice. But we did other stuff too.
I worked on a few sewing projects and Andrew attended his first youth group lock-in. Emma and I got haircuts and we dog-sat for my parents who were out of town (it seemed like just everyone was out of town this weekend).
But I finished a dress that was giving me serious trouble. It should have been a simple dress. No lining, just bias trim for the straps, circle skirt...lots of fabric, but super easy. Only, I made the size I measured myself to be and it was way too big. So, I had to remake and re-remake it and I finally got it wearable today. It has sweet little bows at the shoulder
and the ultimate twirly skirt.
And I danced by myself to my favorite start-over-fresh song - Bandits by Midlake.
Did you ever want to be overrun by bandits;
to hand over all of your things and start over new?
while we were out hunting for food
our house was being robbed
I caught an apple and she caught a fox
so I caught a rabbit but she caught an ox
so upon our return, we found everything gone
which for us was no loss
and we started over
with a rabbit and an ox
