Work has been super busy. One of my coworkers is out on extended leave and I'm doing both of our jobs.
I is tired.
Yesterday I realized I hadn't sewn in days and started having twitches. But, my hand and wrist hurts so badly I knew I couldn't do much cutting. So starting DDs jacket was out.
I went down, rifled through like 6 different patterns that were already cut out, and put them back and came upstairs.
Ok, what do I *need*? I need short sleeve tops and pants. Ok, pants are out. Too much hand work.
I had McCalls 6702 on the table for awhile.
Then Erica B posted hers again yesterday.
I pulled THAT out like, YESSSS.
I need shirts for work.
So I pulled out Simpliciy 2594 which I'd made sometime last year and this pretty (poly? Rayon?) that I got from Hancock fabrics. In the summer orange and yellow are MY colors! I get all tan and goldeny brown and they just pop. (Yes, goldeny is a word! Haha!).
Them I cut a Maria Denmark kimono tee. Which is a 13 second project. I used a jersey from FabricMart
I added bands to the sleeve to have just a little more arm coverage
Last Monday when I was doing unselfish sewing, I had also cut another New Look 6150 out of ITY. The color looks great on me but it fits a litttttttle closer than I'd like. I decided to get it finished too...but then I did this:
I have to unpick it, which serger stitches aren't that bad now, and redo it.
I also went to see a band Friday night with my husband, went to see X-Men Saturday night with hubby and went to see Captain America: The Winter Soldier with the kids yesterday.
And probably won't get back in the sewing room til Friday. :tears:
Did you have a sewing weekend?
