Proof that winter is right around the corner… we got sick. I had such plans this weekend to accomplish so much, but I just haven’t had it in me to work on anything. Yesterday I did manage to finish up two large projects for Creative Machine Embroidery – I had wanted to show you a sneak peek, but it wound up being too obvious what it was so I scrapped it for this meme instead…. because I think we can all relate!
Speaking of patterns, I recently picked up Peek-a-boo Pattern’s Astoria with the intention of making the same top that Amy is wearing on the cover photo…. then decided that I needed it in black and plaid, with a hood instead. Since I’m still a bit out of commission, I think putting that pattern together will be my main objective today – I’m risking mucking up the whole thing if I try to sew it (I tend to make a lot of mistakes if I’m sick, anyone else?).
I am also seriously behind on Seamwork, but I do love the new Elli – I’m definitely putting this one on my list. The Francis is pretty cute, too, but I’m 99% sure that I’ll wear it once and then it’ll sit in the closet.
What is everyone else sewing up? I’m ready to check out some new patterns and buy the ones that have a slightly different cut! LOL
