Blame it on the pattern

Okay, so Jamie Foxx blamed it on the alcohol, and Milli Vanilli blamed it on the rain, so...I am blaming my inability to sew my daughter's top on the pattern!!!

I cannot (without getting upset) tell you how frustrating it is to not be able to figure the instructions for this pattern out.  So, in the interest of staying sane, I am putting this pattern to the side and coming back to it later.  So the next project I am starting will be another dress for my daughter.  This one will be Simplicity's 2572 (See right).  I have already read through the directions for this pattern and there is nothing too tricky in there.

On a lighter note, it is my daughter's birthday today, she is 1 years old!!

I told you it was hard to get a good picture of her, she loves to be in motion.  Well, then again, I guess I want her to be still at inopportune times like when she is tired.

This picture was supposed to be one of those cute mother-daughter photos that you just say "Aww" to.  Well, you can still say "Aww," but not in a good way.  It's more like, "Aww, the poor baby is ready to get some sleep!"  The rest of the day will be better I am sure!

I hope everyone else is having a great weekend!  Memorial Day weekend is when the sales come out, so yes I will be visiting some of my favorite stores, and my friendly Joann's on Monday. 

Have a safe weekend!

  1. You guys are so cute! And you'll cherish this photo of "grumpy" baby just like all the others I bet. Save it for future blackmail purposes I say :) Yep, it is the pattern--I'm going with that one to for my most recent project. Thinking about turning it into a potholder.


Let me know what you think!
