Getting Ready for 2015!

Happy Day-After-Christmas!

The last 4 months have been quite eventful!  After 19 years with my company and ironically 19 months of partial sick-leave due to a crazy virus, my job was eliminated.  It was a bit of a bummer and my first time at being unemployed in my adult life.  But thankfully I have a super supportive family and now I find myself really enjoying my new life.  No more crazy pace, no more travel and fretting about getting home, and no more pressure to hit quotas.  What I do have time for is taking care of my family, saying hello to neighbors when I’m out walking and more time to create fun things from fabric.  I am a very lucky girl!

Due to my new work status, I decided that I would make my family Christmas gifts this year.  I thought I would try my hand at something wearable rather than a quilt.  So I ended up making my people some very fun and outrageous pants.  I had a hard time making the pattern, so I made a few modifications to better suit my skill level.   I can say that after one go at elastic waists – that part of the pattern was simply eliminated!   Good heavens that stuff is tricky to work with.  Plus who wants all that constriction anyway?

Everyone got something different and personalized.  I had a blast making them!  Here are my pants:
