Spring Sewing Party!

UPDATE @ 1115PM
DONE! WHOHOOOOO!! I had to put in Transformers to get me in the mood to finish this top.  I think the butt kicking music in the movie, helped me put it into high gear.  I LOVE this pattern & it makes me more anxious for Boutique to get here so I can make it with this pattern.  What a night! What a party! Thank you - Kelly & Joan for throwing an AWESOME party!


UPDATE @ 815PM
So, I knew I should not have put in Dirty Dancing.  30 minutes into the movie, I had to drape a pillowcase in front of the screen! Who could focus with Patrick on the screen?  I spent a good part of my time: pressing, cutting, checking email, gabbing with Cindy (she is a HOOT!) - back and forth about Patrick & CHOCOLATE!  And there were more than a few times I had to define INVISIBLE to my son.  So FINALLY, I am now able to sew.  I'm loving the chunky pattern!  Sorry for the so-so picture...



UPDATE @ 215PM
I've finally made it!!! WHOOHOOOO! I'm late but that's ok because it's going to be a long night!!!!!! So here is what I will be working on for the party...


Now I just need to figure out which 5-6 fabrics to use for this EASY & AWESOME pattern. The iron is heating up....I will be checking everyone else out.  Oh, and I just started Dirty Dancing...Patrick was such a talented actor and he was nice on the eyes...WHATEVER?!?!?!! HE WAS HOT! Thank you God for bringing him into the world!
UPDATE 2/27/10 @ 1015AM
 For the love of Mary, I forgot that we have to go to town to take care of some stuff.  I hope to be back by noon so I can show you my pattern and fabric.  See y'all in a little bit!!!
