A Day Off-- Even For Mom!

I spent yesterday morning trying to think of a clever post to introduce a few Navratri tutorials that I have coming up.

After procrastinating and worrying and basically getting no where-- I decided to call it quits for the day. Instead, the family (my parents and sister included) popped over the our local pumpkin patch.

Don't worry-- this post is not totally devoid of sewing related content. I finally got my son to wear that button down shirt I made for him last month.

This is the very first collared shirt I've made and I'm oh so proud. The fabric is some cotton shirting found in the clearance section of my local Hancock Fabrics.

My son hates button down shirts, so he's not a big fan. Once I got it on him though, he seemed comfortable enough to play and jump around.

 Here's a close up of the collar. I couldn't find a tutorial on line, so I had to *gasp* follow the pattern directions.

 And, of course, buttons courtesy of my machines automatic button hole feature!
All in all it was a wonderful day. And I'll be back on Wednesday with our Navratri tutorial, so I didn't really miss anything.

All you crafters out there-- do you ever feel overwhelmed by your hobbies? What would you do with a day off?
