To Do

I woke up this morning & wrote out a to do list. I should do this more often. By one o'clock I'd already accomplished everything on this list except for organizing my fabric.


Instead of tackling the fabric, I finished sewing up this top from Simplicity 3835 that I started on last night. It's the very first garment that I've sewn for myself. I've seen lots of other people make this pattern & rave about how much they love it. I have to say that I'm very pleased with my new top & plan on making a few more for the summer. Are you ready for my dirty mirror photos?


Camera is over my face because I'm not wearing any makeup. That wasn't on the list for today. One more thing that I'm loving about this top is that I got the cute navy polka dot fabric from the thrift store for $1.00. Yay me!

I will get to organizing my fabric mess sometime soon & when I do, you will most likely be seeing some fabrics listed in my shop.

That "organize fabric" one is going to take a little bit of time to check off.

I like that top. A lot. You're so dang cute!

i love that top. I'm going to have to make one too, I think.

And if I don't write 'put on makeup' on my list, it won't get done here, either. ;)

(For that matter, SHOWER has to be on it, sometimes.)

I LOVE that top. CUTE, and the best part... the price, you can't beat that! I'm also a "list maker" awesome that you got it all taken care, you are Miss Efficient! :)Have a great day!

The top is darling! I've seen it made up on a few other blogs too...its on my list of patterns to buy.

Simplicity patterns go on sale again tomorrow at JoAnn's, so hopefully they have this one in stock!

My "to do" list is so much longer--and has things on it that I really don't want to do. How do you manage?

Your top is so cute. Wow! I'm sure you're beatiful without your makeup, but either way, your hair is still incredibly adorable!!!

lists are totally helpful, aren't they? (says the nerd).

Such a great top - and what a score on the fabric - good for you!!
Loving the idea of a morning list - I try to do a mental list for the next day as I lay in bed at night but HELLO... writing it down is so much better!!
Thanks, Candace!

jessi said...

lovely top - everyone loves that pattern - I'm trying to decide if I would like it too. You look great in it!

Caitlin said...

I love making a list early and really wanting to get it done. It makes me realize how much I really can get done in a day!

I love Dylan's comments to you - you guys are cute.

I love your shirt! I just made a shirt for myself last month - a first for me too! I got tired of not finding stuff I like at the stores, so I decided to try making something since I've made lots of stuff for my kids.
Also, I noticed you discovered "Your Spirited Child" - what a great book! I got it when my daughter (now 9) was 2 and it was soooo helpful. And now very applicable for my son. My kids have high intensity and sensitivity and it just helps to know how to deal with day-to-day sometimes - setting our expectations in the right direction.
I look forward to visiting your blog more!
