I guess I didn't push publish after that last lovely entry. My 2 year old, oh yeah he's 21 months old, not 2 yet, is painfully outgrowing naps. Painful for me when he's up until 11:00 at night. And when he's practically swinging from the chandeliers, and stripping naked and trying to get into my husband's expensive musical equipment when he should be in bed. He napped well today, and not exceptionally late. I woke him up at 5:00 when we took my older son to karate and he probably slept for 2 hours before that. He's going without naps about, almost half the time now. He's just not to the point where I can really deny him a late nap when he reallllly seems to need it. I have once or twice, or I've delayed him for an hour or an hour and a half when he wants to go to bed at 6:00.

Anyway I have another new idea; I'm going to make myself a dress. I've worn skirts and tops to church for years while pregnant or nursing and while I'm still nursing it doesn't happen at church anymore and I think I'll celebrate by making myself a dress. I'm trying to find the perfect pattern; what I want is something just below knee length, knit, with a modest v-neck and some kind of surplice or wrap detail on the bodice. And short sleeves. I'm finding some that are close by searching "70s v neck dress pattern" on eBay but I haven't totally hit the jackpot yet. I went through a bunch of Dressaday's archives but didn't find the perfect one there although I did get some ideas.

And that reminds me, I'm going to put a couple of links in my sidebar there now.

Current projects: rethreading and then sewing red/striped raglans and unders for the boys. And then maybe the 3 pair of shorts for ds1.
