If you've read my sewing adventures for any length of time you know a few things about me...
- I sew with the television on...preferably with marathons or DVDs of favorite shows.
- A few of my favorite shows are Law & Order, Law & Order SVU, Grey's Anatomy, Dancing with the Stars and The Closer.
- I'm a fabric collector, hoarder, stasher - FABRICAHOLIC - and quite unrepentant I might add!
So today's post is about the things I use to make the ambiance in my sewing room work for me...
First - these DVDs from Amazon arrived today:
Six seasons of Brenda and the gang!
12 seasons of ER - with three more to come!
Then honestly, I have ponte fever! So I stopped by Mood today and picked up a couple. New fabric always makes me want to sew even more...so that's ambiance right?!
2 yds of a black/white ponte, 4 yds of a black ponte,
2 yards of a brown/black/white abstract print
Now if you remember earlier this summer I went to Mood NYC looking for some ponte and was a little disappointed with the selection. Can I tell you that has been more than rectified! I had a difficult time deciding what to choose. There's now prints, argyles, bold florals in several colorways, as well as, loads and loads of solids. Which is a good thing because ponte knits are hot right now!
Most importantly...I heard that its suppose to rain all weekend here in my corner of the world! Seriously, that's great news because I can come home, ensconce myself in my sewing cave, put in a DVD and make my sewing machines sing! Wahooooo! *LOL*
Finally, I would like to thank all of you who left congratulations on the Mood Sewing Network post. It was so appreciated. Also thank you to everyone who left a comment on the last three dresses completed during my sewing vacation because you were all too kind...especially since I was totally devastated by my output. My sewing vacay went nothing like I wanted and was the real mojo killer...the cold was just the icing on the top.
I honestly felt like I wasted five good vacation days that should have been saved for later when the conditions would have been more optimum to sew. I so look forward to those 8 or 9 days of uninterrupted sewing every year. They balance me out...fulfill a creative need...and were more needed than a cruise was...however my home life was not accommodating to this change and I will have to address this before my next sewing vacay. Way more than you wanted to know I'm sure but I did want to address my lack of productivity now that I can speak without cursing and screaming, wailing at the top of my lungs and generally acting like I need a good dose of Zoloft.
I probably won't be back with any posts until the weekend. I've got some wicked days coming up at work and the Gray's Anatomy's season opener is Thursday - yeah, yeah I know - but every life needs a little manufactured by TV drama! *LOL*
...as always more later!
