I have been working on my first garment project for myself: a peasant blouse with bell bottomed sleeves. I was a little intimidated because I have a hard time following other people's patterns and because I don't normally sew anything that isn't square or rectangular. But I finished it last night and I'm mostly happy with it. I learned how to do a french seam, which is a way of enclosing a seam so that there are no raw edges. A neat trick! I will post pictures of the blouse tomorrow, as I haven't had a chance to photograph it yet.
In BREAKING NEWS: Bronwyn lost her second tooth in the wee hours of this morning! She's growing up so fast, it's just amazing. She woke me up at around 3 am with some fussing sounds. When I went in to check on her, she had her hands in her mouth, clearly working on the tooth. I checked it and the poor little thing was just hanging there. It only took a tiny little tug to free it up, after which, Bronwyn smiled and fell asleep. I'm thinking about making a little necklace that I can keep her baby teeth in. When I say that out loud it sounds kind of weird, but I feel attached to them!
