This past weekend was a doozy. I had grand plans, but life, of course, won. I started a few great projects, and finished none of them. :) But here are a few photos of my weekend.
I am almost done with this… but I don’t know if I like it, I don’t know if I want to finish it. Does that ever happen to you?
I thought I would get a head start on summer sewing and make me a dress. I know the patterns are shirts but I like C and thought just add fabric to make it a dress, right? I might be wrong, but at this point with it almost done and me not in love, I just don’t have it in me to finish. So sad because I love the color ( as you will soon see). So I moved on….
My middle son, Monkey, has been asking for a messenger bag and finally the project has sat with me long enough to be started. I find that unless I have an idea for a while I can’t do it. It’s about a year that they need to germinate, there have to be dreams, about 3 or 4 drawings and plans in various notebooks before I can take it on.
Now I have cut everything and just have to sew it all together. What’s that you say? A lot of blue? Why, you noticed that all my projects are blue? That’s right, I love blue, I am drawn to blue, I try to choose other colors, but I have a very hard time. (As a side note, I wouldn’t advise cutting your pieces on a bed, it could be a cautionary tale for you, we will give it time, put all the pieces together and see if it turns out or not.) Well hopefully I can get in gear and finish something, but please, don’t hold your breath. Although I do love blue.
