Ladder in Tights

I've been playing catch up lately. Catch up on laundry, cleaning, and finally sleeping. I was so tired last night I slept 10 hours! Do you ever get like that? So far behind on sleep that you feel like you could sleep for a week? 

Anyways, let's learn to speak some English shall we?

When someone says you've got a "ladder in your tights" they are saying you have a run in your pantyhose. I think it's embarrassing to have a run in my hose. What about you? Are you embarrassed to have a "ladder in your tights?"

Confessions of a Craft Snob

  1. See all my buttons? What shall I do with them?

  3. I am feeling the first inklings of being homesick.

Knackered

Knackered

This word alone sounds funny to me. When I hear someone using 'knackered' in a conversation it sounds even funnier. Actually, the first two times I heard someone saying it I thought they were implying that they were drunk or wasted. Nope… they were tired, exhausted, pooped out.

Maternity Top Refashion

When I am pregnant I tend to wear the same thing over and over again. To add a little variety, I combined a couple of shirts to accommodate my growing baby.

I found the short sleeve shirt at a thrift store and it pretty much reached down to my belly button. The 'exposed pregnant belly' look isn't really my style though. So I cut the bottom off just under my chest line. Then, I cut the sleeves and neck off of a turtle neck I have had for 8 years (seriously). I think it was definitely time for a refashion with this turtle neck. 

Line up the top and turtle neck. I cut the turtle neck to have straighter edges. The difference in the width of the top and width of the turtle neck did not seem to matter in the finished result because both materials were very stretchy anyway.

Turn the turtle neck inside out and sew using a zig zag stitch along the two sides (see above). Then, I placed the top and turtle neck right sides together and sewed with a zig zag stitch (I don't have a picture of this step).

Now my neighbors don't have to see me wearing my purple or blue pregnancy shirt all the time. Do you find yourself wearing the same thing all the time?

Go and be pretty,
