I have a big post inside, bursting to get out, but am not awake enough to let it out. I didn't sleep this weekend. Really. Ugly headache keeping me awake. So today I slept about 9 hours. Felt so goooood. Well, there was the interruption, about two hours in, when a muscle in my shin spasmed and woke me. It was like a charley horse (I always think of the stupid video below when I say 'charley horse'), but in a shin muscle, running all the way down to my toes. Lifted my last two toes and I couldn't walk it off. In fact, I was quite a baby about it, yelling and moaning. The Hunny, who had the day off, brought me a banana and some water. After about 10 minutes it went away, but it was the weirdest thing ever. Happened in my other leg about 10 minutes later.
Let me show you what I did this weekend, in the wee hours of the night, when all good girls sleep and psychiatric techs are required to be awake. (I've just gotten the camera back from the Hunny, who camped with friends this weekend, or I'd have showed you pictures of the Monkey Bread this weekend. Sorry Noble Pig)
This one is nearly done. Just the buttons and the hem and it can be shipped east, to a friend whose Toddler is waiting for it. Can you just see it with a white blouse with a Peter Pan collar? Or a yellow turtleneck? With tights? Here's the back:
The sash is one of my favorite touches on a little girl's dress. It just makes it! But the print on this ... words fail me. I'm not a big fan of this type of print for smocking. But I just had to get this one. We'll see how the girl likes it. Cross your fingers, will ya?
I started another dress for a different friend. Really, I'm partial to solid colors and cotton batiste. But this print yelled at me to take it home. Here's hoping it turns out well.
Purple is always a fun color, huh?
If you'll excuse me, I've been up all of about an hour and the family is asking about dinner. Maybe I'll make eggs and pancakes, seeing as it's my breakfast time.
Until I write again ...
