I do apologize for the silence over here, but what better day to update you than on my birthday!!
Yep, I’m a year older today and this one started off kinda rough, but Caveman is an amazing husband & friend. He loves me through my rough patches and the good times too. I love that man of mine!!
So how’s our summer so far? Its been filled with lots of this…
We have a lovely garden this year and every night Caveboy insists on staying outside until almost dark.
We ride bikes, hunt worms, play Frisbee, catch lightening bugs and attempt not to melt in the 80%+ humidity!
Our 4th of July was rained out completely, but the sun is shining today!! Yippee!
I attempted to get a decent outfit photo the other day but this is all I managed. I refashioned a tee that was an XL and swallowed me whole, into something that I could actually wear – you know, in public!
I used my Anchor tee as a guide as I like the cut of the top. So I cut down the sides, cut off the sleeves and then cut them down too. I completely cut off the neck band and bottom hem too. I sewed up the sides, set in the sleeves again and just turned down the neckline once and then ran a straight stitch around it. I’ve never hemmed the bottom and don’t think I’m going to either but I would like to add elastic to the bottom 3 or 4 inches of the side seams so that there will be some runching and gather up some of the excess material. Refashioning this tee took about 30 minutes all told, but it was spread out over a few days.
Hope you all are having a wonderful summer so far!! I can’t believe it’s half over already!!
