Sunshine makes me energetic, and I get a lot done!
I started out by getting the wash started, my shake made, my coffee consumed and my hubby kissed goodbye on his way to the office.
Then I headed upstairs. I did not have any idea WHAT I was going to do up there today as I had just cleaned up my sewing room from the last project.
I was thinking of starting my new turtle quilt -- or maybe my new wildflower quilt -- or maybe a new top -- or maybe some more pants. Since I couldn't seem to make up my mind, I decided to PLAY a new game.
I called it playing "Fabric Store".
I was having so much fun, I took a video of it to send to Terry, so I will share it with you if I can figure out how. Please pardon the chewing!
So I played Fabric Store for hours until it was time for lunch. I had a shake for breakfast, but I had not had any of my "three healthy snacks". I save those up so I can have a sandwich before my noon shake which I have an hour later now.
Phylly says this "lunch" sounds like torture, but I really love it. I call it a "lettuce sandwich" although it does have a thin slice of cheese in it too. I make it on 45 calorie bread that I buy at Braum's. You can see it in my video, but here is a close-up:
Soooooooooooooo, after I ate my sandwich and I went back to my fabric stash I found the prettiest two pieces that went together. I decided I would stop everything, and make a pair of pants today and a top to match tomorrow.
I worked the rest of the afternoon making the pants. They are done except for waistband and hems. They take a long time because I have to have pockets in them on each side. There is a zip fly in the front.
Now it is 8:20 at night, and I am waiting for Jerry to come in after mowing the lawn. He is so good about that. He is pretty good about everything though. I would be out there with him, BUT something in the air doesn't like my nose right now.
Be back soon modeling my new outfit. Have no idea WHAT blouse I'm going to make. PLUS, I took out at least four other pieces I loved to make four more blouses. While I was sewing this afternoon, I watched Peggy Sager's Youtube videos which are very good. I started one video of hers, and when it was done, another popped up, and then another, and then another. It was a lovely afternoon. I have learned so much from her. She really is the MOST generous teacher and lovely person.
If you are new to sewing, PLEASE introduce yourself to Peggy Sager's videos. Her newest ones are excellent quality and much better lighting.
