FO - Butterick 4789 Pants vs. 2 & NL 6735 Top vs. 2


So I made this top last year before Christmas, but never got a chance to take a pic wearing it. I made these pants on Saturday using my new TNT (tried-n-true) pants pattern - Butterick 4789. Two pairs in two days - not bad.

In life news - I am trying to detox my life. I have been really stressed lately. I can see the stress on my face and even my body is being affected negatively. I am off to Bikram Yoga class this evening. Nothing like an hour and a half in a hot room doing Yoga poses to get out the negativity.

I'm also working on a grant for my Mother. She has done such wonderful and powerful things throughout her life and even in her sixties, she continues. She wants to start a local youth program in Vermont, helping disadvantaged kids to get training for finding and keeping jobs. I'll be working on the grant after hours along with my Sister (via telephone) every night until it's due in just a week and a half! Keep the prayers and good thoughts flowing that I'll have a strong and compelling grant that she can send off to the State for funding.

I have traced several patterns now during my lunch time, which I hope to get a start on this weekend. There's a Vogue top and skirt and New Look cardigan in my future plans.....stay tuned.

I am truly impressed that you can whip out great looking and great fitting pants like that. I tried to make pants once and, well...we won't talk about that.

I'll be praying for your mother's grant! It sounds like a wonderful program.
