I started the weekend off with good intentions. I was going to sew all weekend...I mean it was cold and rainy and perfect sewing weather. However, the Christmas Party for my job was Thursday night...I got home late...back to work early on Friday morning. Then I had an engagement Friday evening that got me home early Saturday morning so I slept late on Saturday...well actually I slept most of the day on Saturday! *LOL* It's been years since I've had the privilege of doing that and I took full advantage of it.
I kept thinking that I would sew today...but it was another lazy day! I've worked a little on the black version of the Burda skirt...added the lining but it's not finished and not ready for primetime. I guess I don't really feel much like sewing...cause I was moving sooooo slowly and when I'm moving that slowly...my heart really isn't in it.
However, I did do some planning...I have a few days off at the end of the month/beginning of the new year...so I made a list of things I want to sew. My closet is finally at the point where I want it to be...I guess three years of non-stop sewing will do that for you...therefore I feel no pressure to sew. The pieces on my list are pretty involved with alot of creative details and challenges. I'm looking forward to taking my time and making these involved garments...enjoying the process and the journey.
Although today I did have to go through the fabric piles (notice I didn't say the closet - just the piles! *sigh*) and I realized that I have bought the same piece of fabric twice.
This has never happened to me before! So now I have 10 yards (two 5 yard cuts) of the grey and blue wool/lycra pinstripe fabric pictured above. *sigh* Since my SWAP has blown up (some fabrics I wanted aren't available)...maybe I will use this 10 yards as the basis of a new SWAP. I just have to come up with it!
Postings will be sporadic for the next two weeks. I have Christmas shopping to do...and another party or two to attend...I probably won't be doing much sewing until the weekend after Christmas!
The end of the year review will be done somewhere in there...and as always, more later!
