crazy days...busy days. Since I last posted, I got a new job offer and start tomorrow.
That means, in those few days, I've been interviewed, drug tested, background checked, fingerprinted, ppd tested, application processed, transcripts requested and faxed.
catered a bridal shower on Saturday ( more on that in a later post...just have to say the Pioneer Woman's Cinnamon Baked French Toast is the stuff of hopes and dreams),
celebrated the reveal of Meghan and David's new boy arriving in December (that makes her fourth boy!)
celebrated Ben's birthday with a good old fashioned chicken barbecue and potato salad,
had a hang-out day with mom and sister Karen (which included a good dose of fabric) ,
thrifted, sewed and somehow managed to keep happy through it all!
So what else have I been working on? A newly transformed thrifted top:
It started as a size 2x rayon lycra knit top. Loved the fabric, loved the neckline, so I knew I could do something with it.
I cut out the sleeves and trimmed it all to size.
After stitching it all back together, I added a purchased pin embellishment from Joann's.
My thrifted striped top, a thrifted Gap turquoise cotton knit sweater, and a made-by-me black ponte skirt from Simplicity 2451. ( view D, without pockets or zipper...I was loving the ponte inspiration at Cabi. See that faux leather trimmed black ponte jacket? I'm SO going to make it.)
I just may wear my new outfit to work tomorrow!
Wish me luck!
