Keeping Ahead of the Blahs

Not feeling too great today. It's probably due to the not-so-wonderful air quality we are experiencing here in the Memphis area. However, I did get off the couch and do a little sewing something to prevent the blahs from coming my way. I have been knitting a ton and should have Caleb's birthday cardigan to show you soon. Knitting, though it is my passion, unfortunately is not as quickly gratifying as sewing. So, when I feel a case of the blahs coming on, the best medicine is the whip something up. This little peasant top is made from a plaid shirt I found at the thrift store. I used a couple of different patterns as a guide, but really it was all me. I made the sleeves at a 3/4 length for both fall and spring and the length is more of a tunic length which I think is super cute with little bootcut jeans.
