I am soooooo ready!

I haven't sewn in over two weeks and I'm sooooooo ready to sew!  Finally feeling better and my mojo is chomping at the bit...so you know where I am this weekend ~ in my sewing cave.  The thing is I have so much that I want to make...so what do I work on first?

Do I work on pieces from the new wardrobe - The City in Winter Collection?  Or do I work on this other idea that I have?  See this week I've worn the ponte knit dresses that I made two years ago...
They were perfect for the changing temps ~ y'know how the weather is chilly in the mornings and evenings & warm and sunny in the middle of the day.  I kept thinking that I need a couple more of these. I have this wonderful stone colored St. John ponte knit that I would love to make up in a version of Butterick 5147 with a complimentary printed knit cardigan from Burda 8869.

Of course, those two garments are just two of the things on a long list of garments I want to make.  A list that's far longer than I have time for...*sigh* And somewhere in here, I need to work on my next garment for the Mood Sewing Network.  Since the fabric for my next Mood garment is part of my new wardrobe plan, The City in Winter Collection, I definitely want to get a few pieces sewn before the cold sets in.

So I've decided to start off easily...you know ease my way back into sewing. Nothing complicated or a new pattern for this weekend of sewing, nope I'm going with TNT pieces aka garment basics.  Next up Simplicity 5914 and the Burda 8869 cardigan...

...as always more later!

  3. Great to hear you are feeling better and back in your cave (so to speak). The colour of the ponte knit so suits you. Eager to see how your skirt and cardi turns out.

  5. I hope you can tackle something fun! I can get waylaid by indecision sometimes, though you don't seem to have that problem. :)

  10. Well, I'm up early to get some chores done and hope to do some sewing this afternoon.....we'll see how I do. I'm a teacher and it's September so my mojo and energy aren't at their peaks....It's still warm/summer temps here (amazingly, I'm in Alberta, Canada), but I have some gorgeous knits for tops I'd like to get going on....
    Have fun! Can't wait to see what you come up with

  11. Just found your blog (again-sort of-I used to pop in once in a while) when my Facebook friend Rose MaRose posted your link on a sewing page. You have made some gorgeous things! I especially love the pictures of your fabric stash. I always thought I had a lot, but I think I'm slacking! I bookmarked your blog and will be checking back. Stop and visit me at http://mrsclaussews.blogspot.com/.

  13. Yay for mojo! I think it's the curse of sewists everywhere that the list of future projects grows at a faster rate than the list of finished projects!
