Man, was it hot today! I got in my car after work and the thermostat said 91 degrees. I am not one for really hot or really cold weather. If I could live somewhere that the temperature stayed at 75 degrees all year round I would do it in a heartbeat! Too bad that is not going to happen as I would have to move to the mountainous area of California and that is not really my thing either. So, crazy Indiana weather wins this round and I just have to suck it up.

But before that, today was another Saturday Farmer's Market excursion! I, once again, forgot to take any pictures to share with you all the amazingness of it. But today's scores include locally made bacon cheddar cheese, locally raised lamb burgers, locally made onion dill pasta and grandma's garlic pasta, and locally made fudge. The cheddar is amazing! I had a slice at lunch and cannot wait for a nice non-rainy day to grill some burgers with it on top!

I used 1 yard of printed spandex and 1 yd of 3" wide elastic combined with my TNT self drafted legging pattern to get these beauties.

I would fit right in with this crowd!
Can you picture it? Maybe they won't be calling after all. Oh well.

On another sewing related note, I have had a productive week so far. On Wednesday I finished Eric's Sith pants for his Jedi Costume. Sorry, no pictures yet. Hopefully as I build some of the other pieces I can convince him to let me take a couple of quick pics to share. We'll see. Today I got another pair of leggings done for tomorrow's Funky Pants Friday. Let's just say that I could have easily been in 1980's workout video with this new pair. I will have to take a quick pic tomorrow to put on Instagram.

On another note, I want to once again give a public thank you for all the support we are receiving with out adoption fundraising. Keep sharing our story. It is working! Slowly, but working none the less. I posted on Facebook earlier today how much I love getting home and checking my email to find a donation from someone I have never met. It means a lot to both Eric and I.

I have another sponsor day coming up soon! I have been hard at work on this one for a few weeks now! It is should be pretty cool, but will definitely be a one time wear only. I don't want to give too much away but it is very much a wearable art sort of look.
