I hope you all had a great New Year! Here’s to 2012 and proving the Mayan calendar wrong. Today is a nice quiet day around our house. Well, maybe not “quiet” – DS the elder has a bunch of friends over and they are playing Apples to Apples. I’ve been working on my next Chanel-style jacket. I’ve thread traced the body pattern pieces onto the alpaca.
While I have been working, I’ve been enjoying the birthday present DS the younger gave me. Check this out! It’s a makeup case from Stila that has built in speakers so you can plug in your iPod or other music player. It also happens to be the perfect size for holding sewing tools. I love this!
I’m taking a break from sewing to make our New Year’s tradition – jambalaya for dinner. I managed to snag the last andouille sausage in my local supermarket yesterday. Yay me! More on the jacket later. Time to chop onions, celery and peppers…
