so, i made some pajama pants out of the fabric the wonderful Kristi Papesh gave me as a gift. i did okay, but didn't really make the casing (waist) the right size for the width of the elastic. Sometimes my patience is limited, especially when i'm excited, so instead of ripping the seam out and trying again - i forged forward. they work... they stay on my ass and keep my legs warm...but i've learned my lesson. my next pair will be fabulous!
i also broke out the sewing machine and some felt pieces the other day and created some avereage-looking simple cat toys. the kitties freaked out. check it:
oh crap, and i forgot to mention that i FINALLY met a person of the male persuasion that knows how to crochet!!!! life is good.
