These past couple of weeks have kind of gotten away from me! There’s been so much going on that I haven’t even had time to do any proper sewing, but that’s going to change tomorrow. Between going to my first ever K-State football game (fun, but cold!), watching my little brother show at the Royal (he did fantastic, I’m so proud!), searching multiple Jo-Ann’s and Hancock’s to find some Ambiance lining for my coat (yeah, I have a pair of very patient menfolk), and Halloween, I haven’t had much time to do any sewing. Also, I have a tendency to wait until I have all the supplies on hand before I start a project, otherwise it gets set aside and (occasionally) forgotten while I wait to get more of something (like thread). This time I’m waiting for the interfacing, since I finally found the lining last weekend. I was pretty sure (and a bit afraid) that Pam Erny lived close to the devastation from the hurricane, so kind of assumed that the interfacing would be a while yet, but she has it shipped already and I should be getting it any day now, so that’s doubly good. BTW, if you are interested, she’s having a sale on interfacings right now…just in case you needed to stock up. 😉
In the meantime, my hubby is helping me draft a bodice block (tutorial I’m attempting here). Yeah, I know, I’m a lucky gal. 🙂 Actually, it’s mostly because I know my mathmatical limitations, plus it’s always nice to have someone help measure you. I thought it would be really nice to have a block with the changes already made to it so that when I go to try and make something in the future I don’t have to make a million adjustments to the pattern. I’m hoping to do a sleeve block when we’re done with the bodice one, for the same reason. Time will tell if that truly makes it easier or not.
Anyway, so tomorrow, I decided that I’m going to do a quick t-shirt (and some machine maintenance). I can always use more of those, and it’ll give me a warm up for when my interfacing gets here and I start on the coat. Hope everyone has had an excellent weekend!
