I’m afraid it’s been a very busy week and a half. I’ve worked everyday since I started, and I’m not sure if there will be an end in sight.
Aside from being tired at the end of the day =), it’s really been quite enjoyable. I’m working early mornings again, but the job is interesting and I’m up and moving around (which helps me stay awake). I also have a very nice boss and some fun co-workers who immediately included me.
The down side is, I have no energy to do even little tasks when I get home. So grocery shopping and other errands will just have to wait for another day. Possibly one I don’t work.
I had to purchase an elastic waist band called a belly band (attractive sounding isn’t it?) just so I can wear my pants. And here is why:
I don’t fit into most of my pants now. I can get by with my lowest and loosest slacks, but even they are a little unpleasant after a while. So now I can run around with my jeans unzipped, and my pants won’t fall off. It’s pretty awesome I have to say!
To compare here is a photo of me last week:
At this rate I am going to be roughly the size of a whale in about a month. =)
For my sisters birthday this year, I made her an infinity dress. I hadn’t even heard of them until a few days ago when I was surfing Pinterest and found the tutorial.
It was awesome, amazingly easy, and so fast to make. Don’t get me wrong, I love sewing. But sometimes it’s nice to get immediate results like this. Plus it was a total of two seams to run, and the dress is really cute.
Here is a photo from the tutorial I found:
I made her’s in a dark forest green, and it turned out lovely.

I have been wanting to start a blog to tell you all what I am up to, and to get to show off the things I make. So here it is! You will have to be patient while I learn how all the gadgets and widgets work…
Here is a photo to entice while I get this blog up and running!
