Got The Mojo -- Got No Time

I work full time as a chemist. I've been crocheting on the side -- which has to be cut dramatically with my increasingly troubling tendinitis and carpal tunnel. I have teens and a husband; all of whom I actually like spending time with ;-)

Yesterday, with all of the things on our agenda, I was away from home from 7 a.m. until about 9 p.m. This is typical for us and so exhausting. But I had the mojo! Something fierce. I wanted to sew. I thought, I can sew up - or at least get the body done - S2406; the Cynthia Rowley dress.

I may never sew with charmeuse again in my life. Maybe I was tired or something but I ended up wadding the dress up and throwing it on the floor. I'm assuming things were slipping around during cutting (I used stabilizer!) because it was so ill fitting that I couldn't believe it!

I like that dress! I want to recut it in a more stable fabric - maybe a linen blend or cotton or sateen or SOMETHING.

I was disappointed and felt like I wasted that hour of sewing time :)

Today we have to go see a couple more places and probably won't be home until around 6:30, but I'm hoping to get a couple hours of sewing in. Maybe I should finish my peplum and skirt.

I just realized it's May 1 and I can cut fabric for both the Accessory Challenge Contest and the Natural Fibers contest on PR!

YAY!!! I just got really happy!

I should make S2406 out of cotton so I can enter it. I'm making NL6035 pants out of a chocolate wool crepe. And for the accessory challenge, I'm making NL 6025, view B in rayon challis.

Everything should be made of rayon challis.


  1. Lol everything should be made in Rayon...
    AH don't you hate it when things don't turn out right and your sleepy? I can't wait to see what it will look like in the cotton or rayon, that really is a cute dress.

  2. Yes Lillian! Everything! LOL! :)

    Drives me bananas. I want everything to work perfectly the first time. Good luck, right?


Thank you for taking the time to comment! I read each and every one; even if I don't have time to respond back!
