4 hours of bliss...

Picking up from where I left off yesterday, the boys went off for an afternoon nap, for 4 hours! whoo-hoo that gave me 4 hours to myself! I took a look at all the cleaning, dusting and tidying and then ignored it all. Wrote up a guest post for another blog, I will let you know when it is up, rather excited since it is one of my fav spots! Then set to re-drafting the basic shirt pattern from the pattern making book I posted about here. Yes, I said re-draft, the first version was a bit of a bodge up, I could only just get my arm in the sleeve, the shoulders looked like I was trying to bring 80's shoulder pads back into fashion and it was a tad tight across the bust, the bit I was worried about, the collar, was perfect LOL. So, I took all my measurements again and started over, I should be able to cut out the muslin today, especially is ebi-kun takes another monster long nap.
I also got started on my army, I plan to take over the world with little wooden people, OK, they are for birthday presents, well some of them, I imagine some will end up in the shop...
