Pajama Party

As I hoped, I was actually able to spend some time in my craft room this weekend.  I only had some minor touches to do to complete the pants.  Basically finalizing the length and the final hem.  And I promise they will get plenty of use! I'm trying to make an effort to not sit around in my pjs all day, but I am still spending a large amount of my time in them.  It's just so much more comfortable while I'm still healing.  

I still plan on making the top - I have the pieces already cut out and ready to assemble. Now it's really just a matter of getting myself in front of the machine to put it all together.  

Fabric: Lisette cotton print from JoAnn's. It was on sale, so it was the only way I could justify the purchase. I love the print, but full price was just too much.
Pattern: McCall's 5992, from stash.  I made these once as shorts. I like them far better as pants, and the fit is great.
Notions: Just elastic. I didn't do the drawstring option.

I did a decorative stitch on the hem
I finished one of my crochet projects so I'll be posting that soon, aside from that I'm still working on my blanket and I'm working on some knit gloves.  I've been doing a little bit of baking, but I know it'll ramp up as we get closer to some holiday parties.  I'm looking forward to spending some time in the kitchen (with the hubby's help for any heavy lifting), just to feel like I can do some of my normal activities.  One thing that has been awesome from this recovery is my diet - probably because I'm not able to bake as much as I normally do.  Oh well, I just need to exercise restraint when I'm back in the kitchen.


  1. Ohhh envying you looking all cosy and warm in pjs. X

  2. I have a habit of trying to rush myself through the healing process and it has never turned out well. So, take your time and get better, don't push yourself. Getting up and walking around is good but anything more than that can wait.
