Back in January I made myself a beautiful summer dress. I think it's my favorite dress I've made--although I am pretty pleased with the one I did for [livejournal.com profile] elemess's wedding--and it's perfect weight for Atlanta summers.

Only it won't button around me now.

Rather than just leave it in the back of the closet, neglected until my ribs return to normal circumference, I decided to give it to [livejournal.com profile] mrs__smith. I was going to alter it the easy way but then I just couldn't stand it not being right, so I had to rip out bias tape and redo darts and put the tape back on. While sewing a snap on through four layers of double-fold bias tape I managed to break the eye of a needle off under my thumbnail because I am tired and yet had made up my mind to finish it before we see them tomorrow for the Great Feast and Hunting of the Eggs at my parents' house.

Anya is so excited about Easter that she could just burst. She adores holidays that involve having large groups of people around (as I do), so she's been counting down for weeks now. We have dyed two dozen eggs in addition to the few dozen I did full of knicknacks and the ones [livejournal.com profile] mrs__smith did of candy.

I made the banana pudding earlier. Two years ago I made the mistake of not making The Banana Pudding at Easter and everybody hollered at me, so I braved Kroger (where a little old lady deliberately almost hit my car to snatch the last parking space as I was pulling into it) and got it ready this evening. Ez offered to help, so I set him and Anya to slicing bananas. About five bananas in, Big Ez muttered to Monster, "I feel like a slave, man."

I think that's everything for tomorrow. Work work work this week.
