WOO HOO! Adam is home!

For any of those of you who have not heard: Adam is home from Iraq!!! Back in the good ol' U S of A and ready to head back to Oklahoma!

His crazy brother John got a Mohawk over the week-end. Thankfully his hair grows out pretty quickly so hopefully that will be a thing of the past very soon!

I am busily sewing away. Last night I went to a class on how to make the perfect pair of pants. We took copious amounts of measurements, so I am back on the Weight Watchers wagon this morning. It is going to be a very interesting class and I am excited about the end product.

I am also working on a swing jacket. These seem to be the "in" thing right now. I took a pattern and modified it by cutting 4 inches off the bottom and replacing it with a (VERY loosely gathered) ruffle. I also took of 10 inches of the sleeve and put a 4 inch (VERY loosely gathered) ruffle on the bottom of each sleeve. I tried to draw a picture for you, but it turned out looking like a Santa Suit Jacket. NOT the look I am going for, let me assure you! I will just have to take a picture for you.

The trench coat is being taken to the cleaners to be pressed. As soon as it returns in all it's fabulous-ness, I will take a picture and post it.

The whole having to work thing is really cutting into my sewing time....

Welcome home Adam!

Mrs Ann, guess who I had lunch with... THEO! He's so cute and he liked me too! It was all really fun until I took out the waitress.

I heard that Theo learned to say "Hi Abby!" with great enthusiasm!

Erin - are you interested in a trench perhaps?

I'm right behind Erin on the request, but I have to admit the thought of tape measures scares the daylights out of me. Can't wait to see.
