Cynthia Rowley 1801

Heeeey–ooo! I’m still alive! I started a new job teaching sixth grade about a month ago while doing my student teaching simultaneously so needless to say I’ve been one busy bia! The kids are crazy but its going smoothly, and I have a great supportive staff. I have also lost about 5lbs from running around and not having time to snack or eat a big lunch all day! My sewing has slowed down but I am hoping that once Thanksgiving and Christmas breaks come up as well as my much anticipated graduation I will have some more time on my hands.

I finished this Cynthia Rowley dress a little while ago and I think it turned out pretty cute. I used a super soft knit in a floral/paint splatter print. Its super cozy and the knit material eliminated the need for the zipper.

I left a bit of room around the middle where the band was because I didn’t want it to cling on too tight. I love the pockets too! I almost left the sleeves off but since its getting cold real quick here I figured I might as well make this a Fall dress.

In other sewing news I have begun our Halloween season of costumes! This year I decided to let the hubs pick out theme, so he of course being the nerd he is chose Star Wars. I think he was hoping I’d roll with the slave princess Leia “outfit” but unfortunately for him I ain’t baring all in public. So be ready for some ridiculous photos to come!

Oh and our chickens finally started laying eggs! I’ve been making all sorts of delicious egg foods- steak and eggs, quiches, egg salad, baked goods, etc.. and they are delish!
