sooo it's end of maaarch and there's quite a lot of snow on the ground. like a lot. like i tried to put out the compost today and the bin is buried under 3 feet of snow. but spring is coming! i know because the car on my boyfriend's street that actually was so covered in snow that all you could see was one side mirror? well i can see part of the hood now! it's rusty.

but yes anyhoo i decided I really wanted tank tops anyhow. and i found an awesome simplicity pattern. I am too lazy to turn around and get the number for you however so yeah...

I originally made this pattern in a really nice ribbed pink fabric. twas beautiful and i was in love with it. but for some reason when i washed and dried it it grew like 3 sizes and now doesn't fit me. it was a depressing discovery.  The next one i made (the one photo's here) is nice but the material is a tad clingy so...need to fix my leggings (why WHY do pattern companies size things so so weirdly. their idea of the standard woman is just creepy. why WHY would I have a 20" waist and 10" ankles!?!? HONESTLY!)

my cat's ass as he licks the soap (I have no idea)

my standard "i don't know what to do with my arms....oh god i'm awkward" pose. seriously what do you do with your arms?!?!

Omgosh, I just bought that pattern. It's simplicity 2998, right? It looks great.
Off topic, but you look a lot like Doctor Cuddy on house- in a good way cause she is a stunning lady.
