Seven days!!!! until I board an airplane headed to Las Vegas! I am so very excited to see family & friends & to sleep at my mom's house. It's fun to have something so exciting to look forward to.
Yesterday I bought some fabric to make more shirts for myself from the Simplicity 3835 pattern. I also want to finish up the other 2 shirts that I have in the works for myself & make a few skirts too. Oh! Plus two bags. Dylan rolled his eyes at me when I told him all that I wanted to accomplish. He let me know that I was just adding more stress...and truth be told, I do get stressed out pretty easily. Anyway, I know that I'm not going to get it all done, BUT I do plan to cut out all my patterns & bring them with me so I can get in some sewing time there in Vegas. Once my babies go to bed, then I can get to know my sister's Bernina. Good idea, don't you think?
I've washed the fabrics. They are just waiting in the basket to be ironed & then cut (perhaps during the baby's afternoon nap?). I'm already second guessing my choices. Left to right, we have a seersucker, a linen blend in yellow & a shirting material.
I'm excited about the seersucker but it's a little thin. Worried that I'll be happy with it as a shirt. The yellow linen blend is my favorite...but will the color work on me? I'm not so sure, but I hope that I can rock it. Then the aqua shirting, again I'm worried about the color, but I think it will be good in the end.
Wish me luck!
