Still haven’t used an alarm clock or had any soda! And it’s still rough, guys. Lemme just tell you that. Rough stuff on this soda free vacation.
Yesterday and today I worked on this t-shirt blanket I promised to make for my friend… over a year ago… (Who still has no concept of the phrase, “in a timely fashion?” Yeah, this girl.)
It started slow. I cut two t-shirts into squares and stitched them together. And then like a YEAR LATER (that would be around now time), I really got to business. (Honestly, just don’t ask me to make you anything. You’ll likely never see it.) I cut all the shirts up and started arranging them in piles of blanket front and blanket back.
I stitched a bunch together and it didn’t look totally awful.
I even got that batting shit to make it like a real blanket! Sewed it all together with the batting and everything and all that was left to do was turn the thing right side out! Then I realized my mistake.
I sandwiched the batting between the front and back blanket pieces INSIDE the blanket pieces. Aka, when I went to turn it right side out, the batting would be the back side instead of more t-shirts. OOPS. Hand this been for me, I would have left it. But not only is for my friend, it’s also about 13 months overdue. I started to undue it.
And since that took forever and I needed a break, I tossed the crumpled blanket pieces on a chair and took a break to let you know that I do dumb things sometimes (often).
Pfft, this blanket.
This is the vacation dress I wore today:
I don’t know if you can tell that the sweatshirt is all wet, as well as the bottom part of the dress. I went for a rain walk and rain is wet, I’m sure you make the connection. Yesterday I had this polka dot dress on (with pockets!) but I only wore it for a little while because I was going outside and it was windy and I didn’t want anyone to see my undies, ahahahha.
I feel I should also mention that on my vacation to do list I traded in “exercise every day” for “eat hot pockets every day because they’re on sale this week and I love them.” It’s going great.
