Wow, I meant to post here over the weekend, however after a really busy week I ended up feeling a little burnt out and didn’t really feel like it. What have I been up to that has kept me so busy? Well the pile of materials above is what I sat down to use for my upcoming capsule wardrobe planning post. I know a few people have been doing these recently around the blogosphere and I decided to do mine after all the ideas for things I want to make was buzzing around my head making me feel uneasy and frenetic.
I have also been working on my college assessment swimsuit which is due in a couple of weeks. This has me feeling a little tense. Not over the pattern too much, but over the order of events when constructing this thing. I want to add a little half lining to the front of the top that has elastic at the bottom to give a semi-bra-like support and I’m trying to figure out how that will work with the twist. I think I have it figured out already but I’ve been lying around in bed turning this thing over in my mind before I go to sleep at night. I want my Eureka moment before I start.
I’ve also been really busy preparing materials for my Gradient Spinning class that I taught last Saturday. I was so nervous (can you see a theme here?) about the participants getting their moneys worth that I was going overboard with my sample prep. Luckily for me, my partner talked me down the day before and the last 12 hours became actually quite relaxing instead of the stress fest it was shaping up to be.
Alterations!! I’ve got an alterations pile that is so big, it’s had children and it’s children’s children are now considering more kids. I’ve been thinking about declaring a week ‘Alterations Week’ where I just buckle down and get some of these things resized, repaired or re-lengthened. Anyone else got a pile they need moral support for? I don’t really do UFO’s but if I did, this pile would be it.
Last and by no means least, I’ve finally got the chance to start a little something for nothing other than pure pleasure……….
What’s been going on with you recently? Have you had much time for your crafts?
