Since People at My Church are so Square…

…They don’t want us to go naked on Easter Sunday and our dresses currently look like this:

my dress



laylee dress

I may not be blogging for a couple of days.

Have a great Good Friday!

woot! first comment - happy sewing. I myself dragged out the old sewing machine and patched my husband's jeans since his job is square and they don't want to see his drawers peeking through.

Well that just can't be true! No blogging? I just tagged you, darn it.

Well, happy dress making and we at least want pictures. Just tie 'em up like a sari and be done with it. That way you have time to play.

Hey, maybe you could ask 'em to postpone Easter a week or two? Seeing how they don't want you all nekkid in church and all...?

(grin)

Hope your sewing goes FAST!

It's sewing day at our house today too! Finally, I have things cut out, but haven't sewn a stitch. Been playing for spring break with the kids. 2 skirts and 2 dresses in 2 days? It'll be my own Easter miracle!
BTW thanks for the link! You've been the highlight of my day twice in a week!

That you are even attempting to sew yours and Laylee's Easter dresses just speaks volumes...

Wow. Happy sewing, if there is such a thing. I would rather pull out my own teeth than try to sew Easter dresses, so I am WAYY impressed by your plans.

(BTW, you know they SELL beautiful, ready-made Easter dresses, right?) LOL.

Good luck. I have so many sewing projects that I've cut out all the pieces too, but have never gotten around to sewing that it isn't even funny anymore! Hope you and Laylee are able to wear your sure-to-be-lovely Easter dresses on Easter sunday :)

You know, I tried going into a fabric store once....it was wandering in the desert! I am not a crafty type person and I admire those who are. Good for you. Let's see a pic when you are finished please????

Is there anything you can't do? Oh please, don't even try to tell me otherwise you Young Mom you.
I believe others are joining me in this request: I expect pictures of the dresses and the lovely Laylee Snow White.

My younger sister got all the gifts: sewing, crafting, excellent cook, plays instruments, you name it, she can do it.
Me? I got nuthin'

Happy Easter!

May your thread be matching
May your lines be straight
May your hands fly quickly
to prevent the barest fate.

May your scissors clip
With your iron steaming
May your name The Daring One
not take a different meaning

May your blog show pics
May your final sigh
Be thankfulness that a nakey fam
not grace your pastor's eye!

What is this "sewing" of which you speak? I am familiar only with "shopping" as a means of avoiding nakedness.

Ummm... Did you see that someone just wrote you a DYM sewing poem. WOW! Go at it, lady!

Sewing? Never heard of it, must be a foreign(sp?) word! I asked for a sewing machine on my 21st b-day, I'm now 27 and have never used the thing! Bt it makes my guest room look very homely:) I enjoyed the dym sewing poem greatly!!

Ah, the Easter dresses entirely sewn in the last couple of days. At least you only have 1 daughter so far.

Remember the Easter Eve we took a little break from the sewing to go play in the wave pool, and your glasses got stolen, so we didn't get home until late, so I didn't finish the last matching dress until 3 o'clock on Easter morning and Becky came down with the chicken pox in church, so she only ended up wearing it for about 15 before I had to take her home? Good times, I tell you!

Some of these happy memories make me tired all over and glad you all grew up despite it all.

Love you! Happy sewing!

Have been searching for an actually funny blog to read. Thanks for yours.

I am the communications director for a semi-respectable non-profit (who would probably prefer to remain nameless) and I also make up words regularly. Loved your response on that one. Some folks just don't know how to have fun!
