Five in Five

It's late on Tuesday evening and I've got 1.5 more days of work...and I can't wait.  I'm having an abbreviated sewcation this year due to work requirements but I'm gonna try to stuff as much sewing in those five days as I possibly can.

There are alot of changes occurring in my life right now and my sewing is going to be very limited over the coming weeks.  These changes are both work-related and personal...and I'm going to have to work a few weekends something that I HATE to do because they take away from my sewing but since I need my day job to support my fabric addiction...I will be at work.

Anyhoo, I know exactly what I want to make because, of course, I have a list.  I've started to pull fabrics from the collection and even tho' PR NYC Fabric Shopping Day was rescheduled due to Hurricane Irene, I will be making a run to the garment district Thursday afternoon to pick up a few supplies...but mostly I can't wait.

Five days of wallowing in my creativity, five days to sew my list of five things, five days to be silent and let my creative soul speak to me...*sigh* just five days!

...as always,  more later!

  2. Have fun! I can't wait for this Labor Day weekend since I get 4 days in a row off. I have a lot of things I want to accomplish for myself but I know I won't get nearly as many done as you always do! I look forward to seeing what you come up with.

  12. Lucky you! I am looking forward to seeing the wonderful creations from your sewcation. I think that being able to really immerse yourself in sewing, rather than squeezing in an hour here and there, is a real treat.

  14. I've been reading your blog for a couple years now and I have to say you are my favorite blogger. We share many common sewing traits: I'm plus size, have many TNT patterns developed over the years and a real passion for fabric/sewing. Enjoy your sewcation and I look forward to your beauties!
