Late on Easter Sunday...

It's been a really packed weekend!  My oldest daughter celebrated her 30th Birthday on Saturday evening at a local restuarant. 


My mom, brother & sister and their families were in attendance, as well as, a few local friends of my daughter since she doesn't live in NJ anymore.  All of my grandchildren were present too.  It was a fun evening that lasted late...then we (my daughters, their friends or significant others and grandchildren) came back to my apartment, and had me laughing with their jokes and antics until quite early in the morning...

Nevermind that we had Easter Service to attend at my Mom's church and then a family dinner afterwards at her home.  It was a wonderful weekend full of family, love, silliness and the amazing things that grandchildren say...we shoulda made a you-tube video!  *LOL*

Anyway, I did finish the shell of the Butterick 5600 dress on Saturday afternoon.  I am at the "sleeve step" for anyone who has the pattern.  I'm really liking the dress so far but won't be able to finish it until next weekend...and even then I won't get to work on it until next Sunday since I have a baby shower on Saturday.  Thank goodness I've made loads of pretty summer dresses that I can wear this week, especially since the weather is suppose to be hot and humid later this week.

...as always, more later!

    I keep hearing great things about this pattern. Despite my overflowing pattern stash, I consider this fate - Joann's is having their 1.99 sale this weekend! I am going to make this for sure!
