In the meanwhile, I might be going on a sewing binge. Last night I finished the tote bags for Laurel's toys, each with appliqued sundresses on one side and a plaid pocket on the other. (Now that I've tried HeatnBond Lite, I definitely prefer Steam-A-Seam 2.) Laurel is tickled that each bag has a sundress that matches one of hers. We'll see how they do for picking up her toys at the end of the day.
I'm getting a late start on making a dress to wear to my sister's wedding, but if I don't get it finished here, I can pack the work in progress and finish it later since my sewing machine's at my parents' house. Still waffling on the fabric, too -- it's a tossup between a sage green floral (light and satiny, it'd go into a mandarin-collar dress) and an allover monarch butterfly-wing print (cotton, it'd probably become a simpler-lined sundress). And of course, I'm making more a-line sundresses for Laurel since she loves them and they're easy to make.
