Missing In Action

Things have been a little crazy the last couple of months, more correctly would say - past year!
Planning a whole Scottish Highland Games has really cut into all sewing and quilting time (and sanity!).
I have promised myself to devote time for family, sewing, quilting and sanity!
Outside forces may try to mess this up, but I am only going to allow a few hours a day to dealing with committments that only really need a hour or two, 2 or 3 days a week, for planning of 2011's Scottish Festival.

My sewing for this year has consisted of: finishing the RR Blogger Swap, repairing a seam on the Devine Miss M's sweatpants and making Hubby a pair of trews.  What are trews you are asking - tartan trousers.
My lovely model is featured in Scott modern red tartan trews.  He has been asking for these for a couple of years.  Note: big happy grin!

Sanity for me is sewing, sewing and sewing, on a daily basis.  I am embarrassed to admit I turned up hems on a pair of pants two years ago with fusible hem tape.   I guess it like the "Cobblers son going barefoot".  "The seamstress/alterationist ironed in hems!"  Really need to redo them considering they are still an inch to long.  My goal for this week - redo hems and stitch them in this time!

I've never heard of trews before but your hubby rocked them!
