Though barley it seems sometimes. Buying a house really cuts into the sewing time. Not to mention the budget. All those "small" repairs really add up! And lets not forget all the appliance purchases! Although, for the first time in my life, I have appliance love. I've become someone I don't recognize, continuosely polishing the stainless steel.
If the house weren't enough to keep me busy, school started on Aug 17. Ridiculously early, but that means we get out early and can hit Disneyland before the rest of California descends. But I digress, back to school means back to work for me. There have been a lot of changes to our school, which means less time for me. and by the end of the day, after running back and forth between school, the house all of E's appointments, and cooking dinner, all I want to do is zone out in front of the T.V. and watch a bit of totally worthless programing.
Because of my funk, I've completely ignored LJ. Seeing everyone's amazing creations just makes me feel guilty for not sewing. But, with Halloween fast approaching, I have a must do project on my hands. And it's name is "lavender fairy". Yep, that's right, E wants to be a fairy. Really she wants to be the unseelie type, but this is going to be a stash project, and lavender is what I've got. I don't know, perhaps I could add some really wicked looking wings to make it a bit less cute. I think I may have a budding Goth girl on my hands. Though, her fav. color is pink, she's fascinated by all that is dark and spooky. Always wants to be a vampire or wicked creacher. She's already decided that next year, she wants to be a witch. Yes, she is also a planner.
Anywho, I'll be using the Simplicity 2793
pattern. View A. I've got some lavender crepe back satin for the main body of the dress, and some lavender organza, covered in tiny candy shards for the sleeves. I'll post some pics when I get started.
Hopefully, now that I'm beginning a new project, I'll be a to enjoy reading the F-list again. And maybe even get some of those ufo's finished.
