Needle Tart

If I'm not knitting or sewing something, I must be cooking something!

Apparently it is time to give the New Baby a new name. Youngest Niece left a message that expresses her concern. No, there are no new babies expected in the near future. I just never changed your kid's blog name. How about Little Guy? All clear? Good.
As for the lists, I still have the alterations to do and Elder Son now has one pair of flannel pants cut out. I had to drop by the fabric shop to pick up a new pattern and think I'd better make one pair up before cutting out lots.
On the other hand, I did cut out 10 new pillow cases.

Yes, it's that time of year again. The Husband has gone South to work and I have lots of "free" time. Whatever shall I do with all this freedom? Let's go to the lists, shall we?

Sew above pants
Make new pillowcases for special pillows
Knit (shawl from Knitters' shawls)
Make dinner (meatloaf, yum)
