KCWC days 4 & 5: blogger, are you back?

I've finally got my last post back, but not the comments, so we'll see if Blogger is really back up and running.Day 4: Falling back on what I already know, here's a smocked top to replace the one she outgrew. Such an easy top - the hardest part is the ironing. I wonder if those thin oven gloves that I've seen advertised would protect my fingers when ironing fiddly stuff?Day 5: Friday the 13th. My son was off school with the 'flu, plus I was babysitting my toddler nephew, so my hour of sewing didn't come about 'til after the kids' bedtime. It might have been a better idea for me just to have had an early night instead... The seam ripper came out for the one sleeve - I redrafted it twice in the end. That serves me right for thinking "sleeves really are not as hard as I thought they were" earlier in the week. Hopefully I'll get it finished today - I'm finally making something for the boy.
Take care,
