Nothing to do on a Saturday Night

So I guess I'll blog about my day. Not that there was much to it.

If you're FB friends with me or follow me on Instagram, you know what I've been doing lately. Sewing.

I'd procrastinated making this tutu, but we needed Monday for pictures (Yay! Can't wait!), so I figured I'd better get busy! 

My view last night and most of today.
Last night. Half-way through...
Ran out of tulle last night, and it was only 1/2 done. Silly me thought 75 yards would be enough, Ha! Truth is I know tutus take a LOT of tulle, but I'd never made one this long, so it took twice as much as I thought! So Em and I made a trip to Hobby Lobby today to get more!

She thought she needed to be sewing since I was! This is a lacing kit.
 And no, that isn't my finger in the corner of that picture. It's my pile of tulle strips!

All finished! 150 yards of tulle!
While I had the sewing machine out (and threaded!!), I thought I'd try to sew another type of tutu. I had some LSU fabric and some ribbon, so I used what I had!

Em calls it her cheerleader skirt!
BTW- Sorry, I don't know why my phone is taking such crappy pictures!

I think I'm ok with sewing projects as long as they don't require any accuracy! Ha!

So now, I have no projects to work on, hubby is at work, Emma is camped on the couch with Disney Jr., and I'm bored.

Speaking of Emma, she fell and skinned her knee outside. You'd think it was broken. Yes, I know it hurts. I'm just not good with the whiny-ness. I'm good for one good cuddle, kiss, bandage it up, little ice cream to make it better... then I'm ready for it to be over. I'm hiding out in the Man Cave, but I can hear her in there. Laughing at the tv, then a little cry and whine. Ha. Milking it a little. I'm just not that type of mom, to keep babying her. After doing all the above, I'll just say "Aww, you're ok."

I know this isn't much to blog about, but again, I'm bored. I'm spending time with my DVR and my crime shows. Is anyone else super excited about Hannibal?  


  1. I love what you have made so far! I'm so not crafty in that sense at all! LOL =)

    Our Emma always needs a bandaid for even the slightest scratch. Even if it didn't draw blood. Drives me crazy!!

    And I wanted to watch Hannibal the other night...however....I was home alone and wasn't sure if it was going to be super scary or not. I know, I know. I'm such a wimp. What other shows do you watch??

    1. I didn't think it was super scary, but creepy. One of those intellectual shows. Makes you think. I, also, watch Law & Order: SVU, CSI, and CSI: NY! I record them, then watch them late when Em is sleeping! Or when I can hide out in the Man Cave! ;)

    2. I have never really watched any of those shows! haha I'm pretty boring. However i'm super addicted to Chicago Fire right now!!!

  2. Both skirts look cute!!!
    I'll stick to watching Disney Jr., all those shows scare me and I have nightmares!!!
