Shirt finished

My parental units were late arriving on Friday and since I was worried, I finished the shirt while I paced! Turns out they just had had a nice long lunch with relatives so it was all good, including finishing the shirt.
striped shirt
As I expected it looked and felt great. Since I had finished it, I decided to wear it on Saturday to my 50th birthday party!

I also made the the mauve corduroy jacket in September, 2006. And now, for something completely different. Or not.

The blouse was fabulous! And the jacket...what can I say?? Heather and I giggled when we realized how silly our question had been (Did you sew that?)!!!

Thank you all for birthday wishes! I think this is just the start to a great year, sewing and otherwise.

Hey there! To think we see each other almost every day at the gym and I didn't know you sew ... let alone know Darrell! He sent me the link to your blog. I am going to enjoy reading this each morning before I go to work!

Julia, I completely missed your great big 5 O (five O) birthday...now days after the fact, I would still like you wish you a very happy belated birthday and I hope the fun from celebrating is still lingering in the air somewhere.
You have also been sewing up a storm...I am so in awe at all that you have completed. Well done there too.

Heather

Hey Lorna! Who knew? Small world and all that. But I don't make any of the stuff I wear at the gym!

Thanks Heather! I plan on celebrating my 50th all year long and every chance I get!
