Hey Sewcialists! Sadly, I skipped a couple of weeks, but I am back with lots to share for this weeks edition of Sunday Lately. I also go some pictures taken of some of the garments I have made so far this year, so I should be able to post about them this week. Work has finally slowed down! FINALLY! I now have Fridays off and that means more time for personal sewing, so expect even more finished garments this spring.
I have been working hard on my PR wardrobe collection. I have 5 of the 10 pieces complete. I have 2 others about halfway done. I have one other that I started and am going to recut it and start over. I have a little over 2 weeks left to finish the last 5 pieces and I am finding it hard to finish. I recently got some new spring mint and coral jeggings from Torrid and all I want to make are tunics to wear with them. I think I am going to call it on the wardrobe contest and move on to making the tunics.
I finished watching Downton Abbey this week and now I am in a show hole. I think I need to go back to the beginning and watch it again. To add to that I found Premier Yarns offers a Downton Abbey yarn collection. Yeah…I don’t need more yarn, but this is amazing. The colors are gorgeous and fit so perfectly with the show. My local Meijer currently has this collection on sale for $3.99 a skein. This was really rough to walk away from. Maybe next week, I will pick some up. On a sidenote, I find it funny that they have color collections for Lady Mary, Lady Sybil, Matthew, and Branson only. No Lady Edith! Poor Edith, story of her life.
I am going to work on switching out my fall/winter wardrobe for my spring/summer wardrobe this week. With the weather finally warming up, I figured it is time to put away the sweaters and pull out the dresses. Plus, being able to see what I have in my spring/summer wardrobe inspires me to make new pieces. I made a lot of dresses last year and I am sure I will make several more this year, but I also want to try some new styles this year.
How about not forgetting? I have been wanting to splurge and buy another Girl Charlee Knitfix, but I made a promise that I have to keep. I told myself I would not buy another one until I used all six pieces from the first one I got. I have two pieces left to use and one of those got cut last night. I just have to sew it up today. Even still, when I do use all six, I probably should not get one. I have so much fabric as it is and I really do need to use more than I bring in for the year.
Craving…all the foods! Since Eric has had the flu this week he has been surviving on peanut butter toast and Gatorade. I on the other hand have been making meals for one, which are not that exciting. The amazing weather we have been having isn’t helping out either. I want all the grilled food: a big cheeseburger, corn on the cob, and brats. I am so ready for summer cookouts!
