I swear, I am the most pitiful sick person on the planet! I’ve only left the house once since last Friday, but tomorrow I will have to pull myself together – I have an important meeting that cannot be postponed. My fever is gone, so I think I’m on the mend.
All this enforced house time has given me plenty of sewing time! I’ve started doing a few things differently, to help with my prep time. First, I’m pre-washing all of my fabrics. That way, when inspiration strikes I won’t have to wait. I’ve also been cutting the pattern tissue for the things I want to make this fall – I really don’t enjoy cutting, and I’m much more likely to start something if I don’t have to do the pattern cutting. And I can do it on the living room floor while I watch tv (I don’t have a tv in my sewing room, though I occasionally wish I did… we don’t have cable on the 3rd floor yet.)
Some sneak peeks (I’ll show the dresses when I wear them later this week.)
