Let the Sewcation Begin!

In my quiet times, which have been few and far between this week, I've thought of things that I would like to sew next week.  Well a list has been made but there's no guarantee that I'm gonna stick to it because I really just want to meander during this break.  I want to go wherever my creativity takes me.  I'm just grateful to have the time off since this week alone, I've worked about 55 hours.

I've also given some thought to my fall/winter sewing plan.  Again in those odd moments when I found nothing work or home-related to ponder...I've decided on the four jackets that I want to use for the individual capsules.  I've also decided to begin sewing these capsules in October instead of starting after the Sewcation.  By starting then, I will be free to continue to meander through the rest of the month...or continue to sew on the list I've compiled that can't possibly be finished in the days I'm off from work! *smile*

So I'm free now.  Food will be delivered tomorrow and I'm armed with a bunch of DVDs, a supply of Mountain Dew, my fabric and notion collection, a list and an uncluttered mind.

So let the sewcation begin!

...as always, more later!

  1. Yay! Can't wait for updates/recap.

    I've had two days home alone w/ no husband, no kid, and I haven't finished SQUAT. Clearly, I have a Mountain Dew deficiency or something.

  3. Sounds like a great sewcation to me. Hope you have loads of fun. I'm volunteering Sunday afternoon at our local fair. I can't wait to see all of the creativity. I heard that there was 101 quilts entered. Should be awesome to see.

  24. When I hear Mountain Dew mentioned, I know it's serious. LOL
    You are such an inspiration. Now that I have been reading your blog for a while, I, too feel entitled to a September sewcation. It won't be a full week, but I WILL get at least a couple days later this month.
    It should be a National Holiday - the September Sewcation. (ouch-55 hours-ouch!)

  25. Hey Carolyn - Do you ever feel like having so much time makes it hard to stay focused? I've found myself with a lot of extra time recently, and while I tell myself that I can now do a lot of productive sewing, I end up dithering more over fabric and pattern choices than when I had less time.
    Can't wait to see what you make during your sewcation, love your blog!
