prime example...

for standing back when choosing fabric....

several years back was trolling the red tag sale fabrics for flannel to make winter lounge pants and found this.   it was really inexpensive and was in a rush, so grabbed the bolt and got what i needed....but to my surprise on closer inspection, saw these skulls and peace stuck with it and it has finally gotten sewn up....only me and the laundress (also me) will see it, so doesn't matter....mainly going for cozy and comfy.   and why, you might ask, am i sewing flannel on a stretch of 80+ degree days?   weather channel uttered "cold and blustery for the weekend" so planning ahead.   have fabric for another pair that is a pinky print, not halloweeny at all.   since my tragic encounter with certain maine doctors, necessary to have several pairs on hand since some bodily functions have gone haywire...just saying.   ****   starting to feel better after long stretch of sinus infection/sore throat/cold sores/chest congestion etc.  haven't really sewn much past week except some hand quilting and now these pj bottoms.  various blog and facebook posts are sending my mojo into overdrive and hoping to feel better in a day or and my tissue box, that is.  so watch this space.....


  1. Such innocent looking pink and purple fabric--from a distance. : )
    Sorry you haven't been well. Hope it clears up soon and you can get back to your stitching.

  2. Now that's funny! Well, at least you now "styling" like a teenager! Glad to hear you are feeling better. Allergy season is almost over, then on to cold and flue!

  3. You sure will be warm and cozy in your new jams.......glad to hear that you are starting to feel better and looking forward to what you will share next!

  4. Wow, you're feeling better and you're getting new pajama bottoms, that's great news! Praise be to the Lord that those Maine Dr.s didn't kill you dead, just sayin'.

    1. they did worse than that...their treatment has kept me in bowel/bladder hell for nearly 7 years and possibly end up in a much for hippocratic oath...
