Friday Sew-n-Tell Part Deux

Is it Friday again already!? Time flies. For the Friday Sew-n-Tell I made a shirt. Well...I didn't make a shirt, I finished it. This seems like a bit of a cop out considering the leader of the Sew-n-Tell, Amy, finished a whole quilt top. But I think this counts, the shirt has been sitting in my sewing basket for 3 months and hasn't gotten done until I realized two things today. 1. It is Friday and I want something for the Sew-n-Tell and 2. I have nothing to wear to school today! So I quickly stitched the last few stitches this morning and now I am ready to head to school! Hurray. It is a pattern I have had for a long time for a pajama set, and I just made the top, and wear it like it isn't PJ's. It is made out of white fabric with yellow flowers on it that I got at Marden's. Anyone who lives in or near Maine should start fabric shopping at Marden's I highly recommend it. Here is my complete outfit. Even though it is casual Friday at school they still kind of frown upon people wearing only pajama top like shirts to work with the children. (Sorry for the quality of the photos, I couldn't find the camera so these shots from my computer camera will have to do.)
Also, last night I got a little crazy watching Project Runway and decided to trim up my bangs. All I have to say about that is "oops". Maybe I should wait until I can see my experienced hair dresser again, and not take a pair of embroidery scissors to my hair at 11 o clock at night!
Off to work, except I am not getting paid!
Enjoy the day!


  1. That's the best kind of finish! The one that has been languishing in the unfinished pile! Plus it's really cute!

    Don't be fooled into thinking I did all of that quilt top in one week. I've been working on it since early spring! And I'm afraid I'm still a ways off from finishing!

    thanks for participating!

  2. i am impressed with the camisole shirt. it looks pretty detailed.

    i also cut my bangs this week. jury still out.

  3. that is so funny about your hair..the shirt is really cute. Sew and tell is a great motivator

  4. I LOVE your shirt, super cute, it looks really good on you!
    I just recently cut about 6 inches off my bangs :( it was not a good decision, but they are growing back fast!

  5. Just wanted to thank you for your comment on my blog, I didn't see a place to email you. I saw that you are studying to be a Speech Language Pathologist and was going to ask you if you know ASL. It's a beautiful language and I am loving it, I have always had a passion to learn it since I was in 6th grade, now at 40 years old I am finally going to college for the first time in my life and studying it!
    Thanks! have a nice weekend!


Thanks for stopping by, I love reading what you have to say :)
