shirt mission

work in progress

Words I associate with weekends: Zoom. Whoosh. Vroom. Do yours go by as fast as mine?

Lately my weekends have consisted of working on the super-special-secret-project, and this weekend was no exception. However, I did manage to set aside a bit of personal crafting time, because I am in desperate need some new clothes. I look like a discolored, tattered, walking moth-fest. When we moved down to Mexico over two years ago, I brought a set of "old-ish" clothes, knowing that I would be roughing it a bit. No dry cleaning here. Oh yeah, come to mention it, there are no washing machines either. Anyway, the aforementioned clothes are reaching the end of their lives. Especially the shirts. I realize that, when I make myself clothes, I tend to end up with some sort of skirt or dress. What I need are shirts.

Enter Built By Wendy's book, "Sew U." I am on a shirt mission, folks. I'll let you know how it turns out.

Amelie, Mexican cat

In cat news, Mademoiselle Amelie has taken to corn. Stealing corn, to be honest. She grabs it out of the bag, jumps to the floor, and proceeds to eat. As if she were entitled to it! What a brazen little lady.

Can't wait to see your shirts (I have that book too, but have yet to sew from it)... and what a funny kitten! I had a cat that loved corn tortilla chips once...

Looks like your shirt is off to a good start...and Amelie is adorable eating corn! Who knew cats ate corn? Of course, my chihuahua ate some banana today. I really hope I don't see it again, if you know what I mean!

Oh my that is funny. Who knew a cat would like corn? :) One of my cats is always trying to steal food too... His favorite is fortune cookies (I have no idea why either:)

My cat, Jean Luc, loves corn. He will do his best to steal it, just like Amelie. If you try to take it away he whimpers just like a puppy. Same story with broccoli. Silly felines.
