It is already a busy day for me...more changes at work...additional responsibilities....and on and on and on. Meanwhile, all I want to do is knit, read and...SEW! I mentioned the other day about purging my fabric stash but I saved plenty of fabric to use (key word being USE as opposed to just keeping it in the bureau). So here is a small sampling of what I've kept and what I hope/plan to make. No timeline, but I figure putting it on the blog just *might* make me more accountable (or not...we shall see).
First up, two fabrics I plan to use to make tunics:
Love these fabrics. The one on the right is navy embroidered on a very pale beige background.
Next up the possibility of jackets:
The top one is a heavy upholstery fabric - a pale sage/olive green with a cranberry print. The bottom one is just plain fun!
Another fun piece I hope to make a top from - there is not enough for a tunic, but I'm thinking a cap sleeve or sleeveless top:
This is another piece that is embroidered.
And last, some fabrics I couldn't part with. I may end up making a couple of project bags:
A crappy picture - the light was glaring. The fabric on the left is (again) embroidered and has oranges and yellows in it. Very sturdy (more upholstery fabric).
There is still a lot more where this came from - lol.
This morning, as I was attempting to wake up with coffee, Tyg started sounding like he was auditioning for a part in the Exorcist! Another cat had wandered onto our patio and OMG, Tyg was so LOUD - he actually woke Fletch up (who was upstairs behind a closed door sleeping). I couldn't capture his sound, but here he is by the back door after the other cat had wandered away - still a pretty fluffy tail!!
The roads were all clear yesterday for my ride into work which was beautiful. The winding roads through Valley Forge were so gorgeous - looking like a Christmas card. The horse farm I pass was beautiful as well. And by the time I got home at least half of our snow had sunk into the ground. Our yard will be a soggy mess for some time.
Well, I've got some work to do before my 10 a.m. conference call and my hope is to get out of here by 3:30 or 4. And tomorrow I'm meeting up with Dee again for coffee/tea/knitting! Can't wait.
Have a great weekend everyone.
