I know it has been ages since I posted and as the title suggests it is because real life is a time suck. Since last checking in I have completed two terms of full time uni and full time work and moved back in with my mother. I have also learnt how to knit (photos to come).
With all that going on there has been little progress in the sewing world. I have completed the mountain of skirts - to which I now have a husband complaining that I have to many skirts and should make some dresses (honestly he should make up his mind). Most of my stuff in in storage but that's ok cause I am still trying to get thin enough to fit back into them. (Worst dieter EVER). I am also planning my trip to Egypt/Jordan in a few weeks which will be fantastic.
I did manage to make a dress for my friends wedding (photos and post later this week) but mostly all that what I have managed is to purchase more material (that I probably didn't need) and more patterns (that I certainly didn't need). I am coming to the point where now I need to honestly consider - should I sell off the patterns I don't think I will use? Then I get that other thought... as soon as one is sold then I will want to make it. The old adage about having cake and eating it too comes to mind. I never really understood that one - what good is cake if I can't eat it. I probably should resell and share the love but I love them all so much (at least I do when it comes to sale thoughts).
In order to get a better handle on sewing I have come up with the idea I am going
to try and complete one major sewing project every month. A pre-planned extravaganza of awesome sewing
with no corner cutting allowed.
Before the trip I may put together some random skits and things like that
but once I am back it is all on. I will
post my calendar of sewing projects in a week or so when I have finalised the
plans (all subject to change of cause).
Anyway I have 13 weeks off uni so hopefully I can get at least a few posts
in here, even with the month away.
