28 in 28

Day one of the 28 posts in 28 days, which is fine in theory but a lot of pressure in reality. I don't know that I have anything to say today, but I'll be damned if I crap out before I even get started. That would just be wrong.

I spent the afternoon with my parental units yesterday. Had some gumbo for lunch (DE-licious) AND I got a to go container to have some for dinner.

We also bought a dressmaker's form for my bday. I'm totally on a sewing kick right now (although Mom is, technically, doing all of the sewing at the moment.) The dressform wouldn't be such a big deal if I were a straight size but I'm short waisted and just shaped funky. Sigh. At any rate, hopefully, this will help to make it easier to make the clothes. The first skirt is done, and the dress I'm hoping to wear to the opera in a couple of weeks is almost done.
Oh, and I shouldn't be blogging at all right now. I should be cleaning, but seriously, what fun is that????


  1. cleaning vs. blogging. Hmmm....I'd have to think that one over ;-) I sew like crap, so I'd be hardpressed to figure out what to do with a dress form. I admire people who can! BTW, I signed up for NaBloMoPo for the first time this month and that's how I came across your site..

  2. I am starting to itch to learn how to sew. Maybe if I promised myself a sweet dress form, I'd make it happen. :)
