Something I Finished!

Last week, I got the most wonderful idea for breakfast:

Last night I whipped up the dough and put these together before I went to bed to be ready to bake first thing this morning. I have never settled on a dough for making cinnamon rolls. Sometimes I just make bread dough and add a bunch of sugar. For these, I used a dough recipe from my mom’s old Fleischmann’s yeast booklet. It uses eggs which is a plus around our house these days.

This morning I became quite guilt ridden about all the fabric I have laying around. A few days ago, I got this fabric in the mail from Cia’s Palette:

The green floral prints are for a skirt for me. All the rest of it is intended for the kids. Anyway, I felt pretty ashamed of myself with all this fabric that I can no longer hide from myself. First, I finished my new red top:

I love this thing. It was inspired by a top I saw online. I used Simplicity 3887 and altered it to suit my taste. I have used the pattern before to make a top that I like. However, this red top is my new favorite article of clothing. I tried it on after having to strip down to fit a dress, and have worn it all day. It is very comfy and looks great on me. The dress I was fitting was one I had some glitches with last month. It has very fun construction (no side seams) and I can’t wait to get it finished and wear it. When I get the dress done, I intend to sew up some curtains for the living room before starting a new project. I have had the fabric for the curtains for 3 or 4 years, it seems like I just need to do it.

This sewing and embroidery are about the only things I have been able to do the past few days. Every once in a while I over use my right hand doing something and inflame my thumb joint. It then hurts like you know what to pick up things and sometimes I can’t even knit. Tonight it seems to have recovered, but I am not going to push it. I hate having to ask Brent to open canned goods for me. I feel like such a wimp.
