my "I-need-to-get-off-the-couch-and-stop-watching-Olympics-for-five-seconds" lil top

Thursday, February 18, 2010

I have to admit: the Olympics are taking over my life. This has never happened to me before. We're eating dinner on the couch in front of the TV, which almost never happens; we're going back and forth between channels checking out the scores; we're wearing a spot into our couch.

It's almost like that feeling you get where you really want to get off the couch and do something else, but just you can't bring yourself to do it. I'm really bored but really excited at the same time. I'm even getting excited for athletes who aren't Canadian because they're just amazing. I said to Mark last night: how is it possible that by watching people who are in the most amazing shape in the world, you, yourself, get lazy. REALLY lazy.

Well I had to do something about it. I had to make something. So during the commercials the other night I made a top. I'm going to a hot place soon and I need hot place clothes. So this is my little top.

It's based on those pillow case dresses you see on all the little kids out there. Also I made a similar one a few years ago.

Also I've been seeing a lot of people embellishing their tops (check out this blogger -- love her creativity!!) so I thought I'd add a little fun to the corner.

I realize the photo quality isn't great. I took this photo this morning at 7 which isn't the best lighting... but ya know... I'm impatient.

Happy Thursday everyone!
