I Know I'd Be Tired If I Let Myself Sit Down

So, my exam went well... I think.  It is so hard to tell with English exams...  but, I was able to keep all my ideas organized and I even had time to go over my work.  I wrote 2 essays (11 pages) in just under 2 hours.  My hand still hurts!

After my exam I came home to get ready for work.  Then, I went to work....  Then I came home and watched part 2 of a 6 part documentary about Auschwitz with Taylor.  (But that is for another post).  Needless to say, I needed something to relax my mind.  (And since my next exam isn't for another week and I don't sleep anyways, I decided to be productive).  It is almost Easter (yay long weekend!!) and I decided to make something to go into the girls' Easter baskets.  I tried Dana's simple skirt tutorial.  It is seriously the easiest thing I have ever made.  The first one took an hour, but the second one took half that because I was able to tweak some things.
Here is Lexi's simple skirt:

It ended up being "fluffier" than I thought it would, but I love the polka dots and I know she will too!

So, after tweaking the tutorial a little, here is Lily's version of the simple skirt...

I am getting much better at sewing.  Just look at this seam...
(Anyone who has witnessed me sewing, knows that seam is progress).

Well, anyways...  Here is one final picture of the skirts together.  They match without being "matchy"... which is just my style.  :)

Oh... and I thought I was handling my stress this week REALLY well... apparently not. 

Yes... that fat lip will be a HUGE, HONKIN' cold sore in the morning.
