MMM day 5 and 6 and realizations about jeans

I’ve been in a bit of a fog the past couple days trying to make my big guys’ birthday party happen.  There’s no reason for me to have been stressed out, but it was his first real birthday party, so I probably put a lot more pressure on myself.  In the end it was silly and we all had a good time.  It was impossible to get a good shot of his pants and his vest, so here they are seperately.

I wore:

1. electric blue embellished v-neck (Jalie 2921 +binding -scarf collar)

2. teal and white Ottobre 5-2007-09

3.  Necklace I got from my points from hosting a jewelry party for my art teacher friend (what she sells escapes me) who often keeps me in the supply of accessories.

Today it’s cooler, a high of 63 instead of in the 80s as it has been the past few days, so I went simple and pulled out my:

1.  Designer Pastiche Jeans

2.  Heathered coral pearl snap henley

3.  vintage Vera scarf–poly, but still awesome

It occurred to me that the deadline for PR’s Best of Contest is the 15th and that today is the 6th.  That gives me 9 days to whip up a pair of jeans.  Now, my construction has gotten faster, and there’s no fitting I need to do with this pattern, but that’s still kind of a fast turnaround, especially considering that I’m still in the process of altering my fabric.  We’re having people over tonight for dinner, so it’s unlikely that I’ll be able to cut out anything today.  I’m still going to cross my fingers and push on through, but I hate when jeans take over the sewing room.  Maybe I’ll surprise myself with some kind of hidden ninja efficiency I have.

What are you working on?
