I am finding it very tricky to sew at the moment. This morning I actually considered skipping make up before going to work so that I could put the zipper in the trousers I am making. I have a problem.
(I did not skip the makeup, the trousers remain zipperless, the problem remains restricted to wanting to sew, but only barely)
I can still plan. However, my planning seems to operate on whims.
First I felt inspired to use some of my Sydney fabric shopping haul from (blush) October after I was admiring my fabric the other day whilst trying to force the cupboard door to close. Then Elizabeth asked me to write about my overlocker. Really, I hardly use my overlocker, I am practically a knit novice, and after Elizabeth's comment, was reminded that I really want to get better use from my overlocker.
Today, Sherril showed this t shirt on her blog.
It was the last straw, and I want to make it. There is dark brown lace and dark brown rayon knit in the Sydney pile for which this idea will be perfect.
I want to make this shirt by the end of Easter Monday. I also want to make the final two shirts and maybe a different skirt for my daughter's SWAP. There is a BWOF 2-2010 t shirt just made by KID,MD that I want to try this weekend too. Unfortunately, even I can see that this is impossible, as Easter has its own obligations, and also a family visit and 4 long bike rides need to be fitted in.
There should be a sewing term that says the same thing as "Your eyes are bigger than your stomach".
