Hey Sewcialists! I recently joined the Blogger Tribe on Facebook. They are a fun and welcoming group that I am honored to join. Every Sunday morning there is a prompt to write about our week and just a general brain dump. I really like this idea. I think it will help me to get back into blogging regularly. Plus, it is an easy way to blog about all of those little things that I think about but do not have enough to make a full post out of. Normally, this is supposed to be posted by 9am, but since I just joined the group I am posting it now. The theme for this week is Creating, Finding, Switching, Forgetting, Craving.
I have not been creating much this week. I started this week by getting projects cut out for the Pattern Review wardrobe contest. I had big plans on Friday while driving home from work to sew them up, but about 30 minutes after I got home I immediately got sick. I had a feeling all week that I was on the verge of getting a terrible cold but I kept pushing because I had stuff to get done. Then it finally hit me on Friday. Today I am feeling a bit better and I am hoping to get some more of my wardrobe pieces cut out to sew next week.
I am working on finding more time! I have a lot of hobbies and not enough time for all of them. This year I am working to find a better balance. To do this I need to be better at scheduling my time to make sure I take full advantage of the time I have to do the things that are important. One of my newest hobbies is photography and learning how to use my new Nikon DSLR camera.
I am switching gears from winter sewing to spring/summer sewing. After getting the paper pattern pieces cut for my Cascade Duffle coat, I decided not to make it. This winter has been pretty mild and I just cannot see needing it by the time I would get it done. Instead I am switching to making my 10 piece wardrobe for the contest.
True story, I forgot the date of Eric and I’s anniversary. We were talking about what we were going to do and I could not for the life of me remember the date. Yep, that is a thing that happened.
After the last couple of months of working 60+ hour weeks, I am craving a vacation! I have two fabulous trips to Canada planned for this summer. One is a girls trip to Stratford to soak up some great theatre. I haven’t been here in 15 years and I am looking forward to this a lot. The second trip will be for Eric and I, and we are going to Niagara Falls. Neither of us have ever been before, so it should be a lot of fun.
That wraps up my week. How did your week go?
