It's friday night and I'm sitting in front of my computer seeking inspiration on the internet. Why you ask? Because even though I've picked out patterns, fabrics and made a list - my collection is not talking to me. Or rather it's talking and saying things that I generally don't want to hear...things like, "I don't think that jacket you picked is going to go with that dress?" "And how come you went with that color blue...don't you already have something similar to it in the closet?"
Seriously, I couldn't close my eyes to sleep on the bus because the taunts kept coming fast and furious...so now I don't know what to do next. And this is not a good place for me to be...when I'm here and attempt to sew I end up with A Bring It On Cheerleader type dress...*sigh* Another issue is that I want to make something fabulous! Something that people will stop me in the street and ask where did you get that awesome dress? And what designer created that masterpiece? So that I can humbly say, moi! Even though they would have to have x-ray vision to see that oh-so-amazingly-fabulous dress since it's like freezing here on the East Coast and I'm walking down the streets of NYC looking like a silver polar bear!
See this is why I hate winter (except for those marvelous wools) and why it is my least favorite season...I just haven't perfected a way to look kewl while staying warm...*sigh* But none of this and I mean none of this rambling is solving my problem...WHAT am I sewing this weekend?
I hear you...you are saying take a piece and just start sewing there...it will jumpstart you and before you know it, you will have the collection finished. Yes, yes you are absolutely right...I've thought this...but then the voices start...yes, those voices taunting me..."Make a piece but what will it go with?" "You know that menopausal body of yours doesn't look good unless you have all the pieces working?" "Seriously, YOU make just one piece?" Oh and by the way I'm not on medication...you know you hear those fabric voices too! *LOL*
So who knows what's coming out of the sewing machine this weekend...stay tuned because you might be as shocked as I am...*LOL*
