This is the world's most boring post, but I'll update in a couple days. I'm sewing stuff, but there's a lot going on around here this week! Doesn't help that I can't find the camera when I need it...
On the sewing table is a new nightgown for Little Miss Princess. I got some flannel-backed silky Winnie the Pooh fabric for $1/yd, and I'm using Butterick 4910, as usual. Cut and ready to sew. In the assembly phase is my new spring jacket, from the December 2008 Burda. I think it's #106, and just got through the darts and pockets, so I think the rest should be easy!
It's either allergies or a cold, but my sinuses are going nuts! I'm slightly under the weather, and chose to nap this afternoon instead of sew. That was definitely 2 hours well spent, I'm feeling a little better now.
Tomorrow I'll be traveling to Northwood University, where a former student has chosen to recognize me as one of her most influential teachers. Since she's an academic honors student, she was allowed to invite me to this luncheon as a recognition for both of us. I'm looking forward to visiting with her (she graduated 3 years ago), but the hour drive is a bummer. I might squeeze a little sewing time tomorrow night.
Sunday it's supposed to snow?! We spent a couple hours outside today enjoying the park and playground, but it happens every year here in Michigan. It's winter... it's spring! Oh, wait... it's winter again... now we skip to summer... no, wait it's winter again...
Monday is the most exciting news of all. I have the day off from work and we're picking up our new camper. I'm so excited! I know this has absolutely nothing to do with sewing, but we're all looking forward to spending some quality family time together this summer.
So, the next post will have sewing pictures, I swear! And if you made it this far, I have a question for you... anyone interested in swapping some fabric? Dawn and I did this and it seems to be really fun way to mix up the stash (for just the cost of postage). I have some leftover (at least a yard) that I know I won't use, and if anyone is interested in trading the same amount, I'm game. Post a comment, and let me know!
