I'm in a holding pattern!

I'm on countdown status.  Every morning I wake up and think only so many more days!  Due to this fact, I've done nuthin' sewing.  I mean I'm thinking about it all the time.  Almost got run over by a car crossing 57th Street this morning because I was working through a sewing technique in my head. 

But all of these thoughts are about things to sew for my upcoming sewcation, nuthin for now...so I feel like I'm in a holding pattern.  Circling over my days, waiting impatiently for them to pass so that I can get to the really fun stuff!  Arrggghhhh.   As of today, I have six days before I'm free!


I do have plans for this piece of fabric on Sunday.  Because Saturday, I will be joining Elizabeth and her merry band of fabric shoppers from PR, checking out a few fabric sites in the district.  Yeah, I know I really DO NOT need another piece of fabric...but hey, I haven't been to the district in a minute and Elizabeth got Elliot Berman to open for the group Saturday morning. 

Besides, I do have a supply list that needs to be filled for sewcation possibilities...*smile*

...as always, more later!

  1. That fabric you posted will look absolutely LOVELY with your skin and eyes - I could totally see a simple TNT dress made with it where all of the elegance of the dress was in the pattern. That green...*swooooon*

  3. If nothing else, the others on the "field trip" need you to encourage...er...enable...join them. :-)

    It will be nice to get all the supplies you need for your sewcation, so it will be uninterrupted bliss. You're sew organized!

  4. I am currently enjoying my last few days of unemployment, and sewing too many projects at a time, so I completely understand the fact that you cannot wait for your vacation!

    Also, like when I was 16, I went along an award giving thing. I chose your blog as one of my five favorites. Thank you for posting this amazing content!

  6. I also start my vacation this weekend. I will be off until September 7. I plan to sew as much as possible. I can hardly wait to start my sewcation. My sewing friends & I have a road trip on Saturday to Mary Jo's Fabrics in Gastonia, NC. I'm planning what I will sew during my time off.

  7. I love that fabric. I have been dreaming about decorating my bedroom in this combination! It will look stunning on you. Of course, my question is about shoes. Have you thought about what you will wear with this?

  8. OMG! Where did you get that fabric? I am in such a state of envy I might start hyperventing.

    It will look marvelous on you; can't wait to see what you come up with.

  13. Love the new fabric. Gorgeous color that you'll look great in--and I can't wear. sigh. I'm so enjoying your blog and the world of "sewistas" to whom I'm being introduced. I love your creative integrity. You and your cohorts have inspired me to begin sewing for myself, again. My DH asks where I intend to wear all these new clothes. I smile. but already am thinking maybe I should begin my own sewing blog as a way to connect with others who can't pass a fabric store without entering! Keep the faith!
