Flash Your Finishes Friday #43, Cake, Birthday Girl

First, thanks to everyone who visited and linked with this week’s Whatcha Workin’ On? Wednesday.  I love seeing what everyone is working on!

OFF MY MACHINE

This dress, Simplicity 1018, view C

Gotta pat myself on the back a little…I did a little pattern tinkering with this one.  Nothing outrageous–I’m not that good of a seamstress, but because my shoulders are so narrow and the rest of me isn’t, I usually shy away from dresses.  Everything either fits my shoulders or my butt, but never both.  Anyhow, I played around patternwise, making the shoulders smaller, but followed the pattern for the rest of the dress and it worked!  I made something that fits everywhere!  I feel so SMART!  (Just don’t ask me about the sleeve I put in upside down – twice.)😋

ON THE COOLING RACK

If this tastes as good as it smelled baking, my diet is doomed.

Yeah, self control isn’t really my thing, as in “Anything worth doing is worth overdoing”.  Oh, let’s just dispense with the niceties, shall we?  It’s more like “Let’s find something to like, become obsessed and run that sucker as far into the ground as possible as often as possible.” Now, don’t we all feel better??  Honesty really IS the best policy! 😇

THE SPROUT IS 3!!!
