sewing day!

apparently it's supposed to snow a lot today. yikes! i hope it doesn't affect traffic because i have to be back to the city by 6pm for my sewing class. we are using the "amy butler barcelona skirt pattern" which looks like this:

i hope i can make it a bit shorter because i don't find that length to be very flattering. i bought a red and black patterned fabric last night at fabricland. i have to say, their selection of cotton fabric was really ho hum. unless you wanted a superlame christmas inspired design. can you imagine? maybe for pajamas or something, but not a skirt.

today i am lazy again. i woke up to swim at 6:30, and then suddenly it was already 7am and too late. what is going on? i went to bed at 11pm last night too, which is quite early for me. i love staying up late. i love sleeping too. what a conundrum, you see. conundrum: do you like that word? i do!

last night we made personal pizzas with multigrain flat out wraps as crust. i also went to the polish grocery store and bought two kinds of delicious salami. i went in to get tomato sauce and then forgot all about it, so we had to use bbq chicken sauce as a base. it turned out extra tasty. my pizza had green pepper, red onion, tomato, zucchini, mushrooms, light mozza cheese, and both kinds of salami. i always thought salami was really bad for you, but it's only 2 points per 1 oz. which isn't that bad because it's not that heavy.

i am having the rest of the salami today for lunch in a flat out wrap with lettuce, tomato, mustard, green pepper, red onions and mushrooms. wrapped up though too. it's huge! longer than my foot! i don't know if that's true or not. ;)

I stopped buying flat-outs, but when I did buy them I always used them for pizzas! Yummy. :) (I didn't like them cold for just wraps or whatever.)

you are so funny. I just love the way you talk.

I think your ugly Christmas cotton fabric skirt idea has inspired me. I'm supposed to go to an ugly Christmas sweater party (where you where ugly knit sweaters with reindeer on them etc) but I don't have one. Maybe I'll sew up a quick tacky christmas skirt. I think it would be pretty funny.

Your pizza sounds AWESOME!!!
I always put Salami (well almost always) on homemade pizza!!!

oh my god I want to make that skirt!! That is the exact skirt I picture myself sewing when I finally decide to learn!!

Shorter is definitely better though!
