Missing in Action

I don't know what's going on with me and my sewing but I lost this last weekend due to coming down with the cold from hell!  I was laid low for four days...just going back to work today.  So there are no completed pieces to show...though I did manage to cut out two cardigans from the new silk jerseys...and after trying on the black & white dress again...I've decided that I just don't like it on me.  I hate looking like a stuffed sausage...so Gay if you want it, I will send it to you.

See sewing outside your comfort zone equals wadders...well sewn wadders but wadders nevertheless.  I should have stuck with my original plans for the fabric...*sigh*

Just a quick update...hopefully my sewing mojo and my health will be in tune with each other this weekend and I can finally begin to move some of my ideas from my mind to my closet.

...as always more later!

  1. Hey Lady, happy you're feeling much better!!! It amazing how a cold can impede on your sewing and of course your life in general. Can't wait to see what you sew up next. I hate wadders too but they're part of the process. I think I actually might be sewing one up now and will see in a few days. How come an idea always looks perfect in your mind? Guess that can't always be the reality:)

  3. Hope you feel better soon to get back into the sewing. Shame about the last wadder. No point in keeping it if it doesn't make you feel good :)

  4. I don't think you look like a sausage at all in the black and white dress. It was very flattering in the photos :) I understand not being comfortable in clothing, though. At least someone else can enjoy it!

  5. Sorry to hear about the cold and the wadder. I know we all keep getting told to step out of our comfort zone and experience new things, but I think it's called a comfort zone for a reason - no nasty surprises and time wasted! When sewing time is so precious it makes good sense to do what works and makes us happy. I love the quote from Merryl Streep's character in It's Complicated, "So, I went out of my comfort zone, which I found out if you're really honest with yourself, isn't all that comforting."

  6. Well I for one will appreciate your stepping out of your comfort zone - I'll be happy to take that lovely dress off your hands.

    This past weekend, I managed to totally mess up the skirt I can make in my sleep. Seriously - I added 2 extra side panels. GAH! g

  7. Look after yourself. The fabric will always wait for you.

  8. I hope you kick that cold & get better soon! It's so frustrating sometimes to only have a weekend to sew and then it just zips on by, so I hop you're back to doing everything you would like to soon. :-(

  9. Sorry you've not been feeling well - but I'm sure you'll be raring to get at the sewing after a little enforced absence. I think that your black and white dress looked lovely but I do understand the feeling that sometimes you just don't feel that a garment is right for you. I've had it happen to me - not only with things I've made but sometimes with clothes that I've bought - I think they're going to be right but they're just not!

  12. So sorry to hear you're feeling poorly. But as far as sewing mojo goes, I've been a sewing maniac recently and won't be doing any sewing for a couple of weeks . . . so I'll send my sewing mojo up to you!

  13. Glad to hear you are feeling better. I often fantasize about steping out of my comfort zone, but once I lay the pattern on the cutting table.. reality hits me.

  15. Uugh. It's always such a downer when you are excited about a fabric and then the garment doesn't turn out how you'd hoped.

    Feel better. I hope some sewing lifts your spirits.

  16. Aw darn Carolyn. So sorry about that cold and I guess we all know how bad we feel when one of our dreams don't turn out the way we planned.It's just so dissappointing No sewing going on here either. I just don't feel like it!

  19. Take care of yourself. My DH has had "something" for four weeks. Rest, liquids (of any type!) will help. As for wadders - out of sight out of mind. Life is made up of wadders. Glad you could post again........Lydia
