The weather here is still like the picture below, we had one sunny day in the last week I suppose. I've got so many things I want to do that I don't know where to start. My sewing room looks like a bomb blew up in it, which is not normal for me (I'm so anal retentive, or "AR" in my house). Usually when I finish a sewing project, I tidy up and put away all of the little bits I've been using. Obviously I'm a little behind. I've got about 6 zipper pouches laying on the table, a monkey backpack that needs finishing, a cup of coffee from 3 days ago, shipping supplies, etc., etc.. What a mess! I really want to clear out some fabrics and organize a bit in here.
The good news is that I'm starting to find some time to plan my wedding, which is now only 3 months away...yikes! I have a florist, caterer and cake on reserve, still need a photographer. The other stuff is pretty easy. Naturally, I have purchased most of the fabric I need to make various things. Here it is, waiting to be used...
along with some yarn for the place cards/favors. Here's a hint at what those will be. The Spring patterns are starting to trickle in so I'm beginning to think about my dress. Yep, I'm making it. I'm no Project Runway contestant (but I'm a huge fan), I need a pattern to get me started. I think the hardest part will be committing to the fabrics, and fitting myself! Anyone want to come to the Bay Area for a little visit? haha
And, last but not least, I got a chance to check out some of my favorite blogs this morning and I've noticed a lot of you are in the same mind set as I am right now.
Jessie's scraps are taking over.
Jenn, as usual, is all organized and getting things done. Dang!
Thanks for all of the inspiration ladies. I need it when the skies are grey and I don't have farmer's markets staring me in the face. My goal today is to make at least 2 of those zipper pouches and maybe a pattern for them as well, but this is what I want to do.
