Around noon today I decided that Grace and George need Easter quilts.  You know because that's a totally normal thought to have.  Around 10 p.m. I started cutting all the necessary quilt pieces.  You know all 192 pieces.  I think that's right.  It's way too late and I just had to do regrouping addition in my head, so that could be off a little.  Anyway, we are headed to the in-laws for Easter, so I thought this would be a good project to bring with me.

Then after I had cut out all the quilt squares, I decided that I needed to finish the second Schoolhouse Tunic that I started a couple of days ago.  I mean who likes to go out of town and come home to an unfinished project?!?  That would be simply crazy.  The first Schoolhouse Tunic I made will be worn as a dress with cute heals or flats.  I added 2 inches (approximately) to the length because modest is the hottest.

I totally used to be a model.  Can't you tell?!?

However, the second tunic I sewed tonight is the length of the tunic dress pattern.  This loud and beautiful tunic will be worn with black leggings and some hot pink flats.  I have the leggings.  I'm working on the flats.  I have the vision in my head of what it should look like, so hopefully somewhere out there I'll find the flats of my dreams.

This picture doesn't do the tunic justice, but it's late and dark.  Please forgive me.

For now I must go and dream.  I have workers coming in like 5 hours.  Night night!

Oh my gosh! When I realized it was 1am in CA and MOM was not updated, I was relieved because I thought it meant you went to bed!! Not so, it meant you were only halfway through your night.

If anyone understands your need to stay up late sewing, it is me. I hope your 5 hour nap was restful :)

The second tunic is beautiful. I hope the hot pink flats show up at a TJ Maxx or a Target ASAP. I'm so glad that fabric worked!!

Love you.

Both turned out great! I can't wait to see you modeling the other one too.
