Pretty impressed with my alterations so far

Had an oops with the scissors near the right hand pocket…cut where I wasn’t suppose to.

Just need to finish the bottom….someone does not feel like trying them on again. I  am considering just finishing and if it’s not right oh well….he should have tried them on.

I ended up removing 1 inch from the width of the legs. Taking the inch off on three outside seam. The waist remained untouched as it fits him fine there…just appeared to be way too much fabric in the leg.
UPDATE: My Love tried them on and said they feel weird…..well now I have some denim in my fabric stash….hmm maybe I should look into denim upcycling ideas!

So I had decided that every day in the month of March I would take a picture. It was 3.4.14 when I realized I had yet to do this. So I decided I would start today….well yesterday I was at a baby shower and soon learned there was no juice left in my camera batteries. Figures right…lol Guess this endeavor needs to wait a bit longer. Although I did take a picture of a mini pine tree I planted in 2012…I put it on my instagram.
Today I finally made progress on the Jean alterations for My Love….now if he would stop working on his hobby for a few moments to try on the jeans they may actually be completed today.  It is not the best alterations but I am pretty proud seeing I have no clue what I am doing and just went with it. As My Love says “So what…they are only for work. I give you credit for even attempting to fix them”. Awww isn’t he sweet.
Next up: A cute little purse for me and a blanket for him!!!

Today I decided to make the Infinity Scarf for my nephew’s fiancee that I have been putting off. I have been putting it off as I am not a huge fan of working with the Jersey Init. This time it went better. Maybe because it’s for a family member and I was making it out of love. It is almost completed. I just have to do the hand stitching. I started it but decided to put it aside until tomorrow. Apparently it is not wise to hand stitch with black thread on grey and black fabric when one is wearing black….lesson learned. 
I also spent some time working on organizing my recipes. I have taken the recipes that I have been making over the years and the recipes from Pinterest that I love and put them on my laptop. That was the easy part. Now to add the recipes that are scattered around my house. Eventually I will be turning this into an actual bound cookbook. I am so excited about this. I was able to locate a local book binder that is helping me with this project.
My Love is making his amazing bbq chicken tonight for dinner. This got me to thinking that I simply must have cornbread to go with it…..so of to the kitchen I went. It smells delicious in here. A few weeks ago I made cornbread but learned I prefer it sweet so I tried a new recipe today. Hoping I like this one much better!
I will also be working on altering a pair of jeans for My Love. See I bought them for him for Christmas and the silly man took the tags off and discarded the receipt so he was unable to return them. When he tried them on they where HUGE. I bought the size he told me but an certain they where mislabeled. A bit nervous about this project but we decided together that worst case is that they will be up cycled into  something else.
Hope your enjoying this Beautiful Saturday!!!!
