lazy me is happy

I have a split personality. Lazy me and diligent me. They take turns being in charge. Sadly I think that lazy me is the dominant personality. I don't want that to be the case. Someday, when I die, I would want people to say "she was a hard worker" and not "what a loaf!".

My personalities had a very busy weekend. Diligent me kept the house tidy, did the laundry, did the shopping, and basically kept everyone moving. Lazy me went out to dinner with the family, took a nap, read a book, watched some tv and sewed this skirt. In less then 20 minutes!

Have you tried the lazy days skirt pattern from oliver + s? So quick. So easy. No raw edges. Zip zip zip and you're done! I've made one already this year, and I plan on making some more. And I love seersucker. Don't you?

Marguerite dislikes pants and shorts so I try to keep her loaded with skirts. She even wore a skirt to soccer practice last week. Her soccer shorts were in the dirties, and she wouldn't/couldn't wear any of the other (few) shorts she has.

Two notices for you
1. First, thank you for all the great comments you leave me. I appreciate them very much. I just don't usually get back to you, and I feel a little guilty about that. Do know that if you ask me a question, I will do my best to reply to you.

2. My wrist has been bothering me lately. Lazy me has been on the computer too much. So lazy me is going to take a break from the computer for a few days. That should make diligent me happy because she will get more done. So if you see lazy me hanging out on line, reprimand her! OK?

You're funny! I have those same two selves. But diligent me is my recessive self. Love that skirt! I'll have to follow the link.
