Holy Cow...it's Sunday night! Seriously, did I just have a 4-day weekend and if so, what the heck did I do with it?! I feel like I didn't get anything done. I've been whining to *the boy* about this and he keeps reminding me that I got lots done but I didn't get much done in the department I really wanted to...stitching.
What happened to stitching?! I definitely thought I'd have a finish and a new start at the end of this weekend but alas, that is not meant to be.
I do have a different type of finish though.
I finished my pajama pants! Yay!!
They are still a little big even after I took in 2.5 inches in the sides and cut off 4.5 inches off the rise. But since they are elastic waist, I cut the elastic a little smaller to cinch the waist in a little more. I did my little happy dance in them earlier today! They are super warm and comfy. Perfect for the coming cooler winter months.
There is one more project for the class, a vest, which I've decided not to do. This little voice in the back of my head keeps screaming, "but it's your assignment and it's due!" but these big projects aren't my thing...especially under deadline when it's keeping me away from the things I really love...like stitching. I miss stitching and I feel like my progress has diminished significantly in that department lately. I'm learning what I wanted out of the class. How to use the machine and technique but I never wanted to learn to sew to make clothing or quilting. I just wanted to learn how to make little bags and wall hangings and pillows...things like that. Clothing construction was just an added bonus. I have the supplies for the vest and may make it one day just to see if I can and who knows, there may be a sudden spurt and I may actually do it. But I'm not going to stress myself out over it.
Back to work tomorrow...say it isn't so! At least I'll be busy...have to close payroll and make sure the masses get paid on time. Shoot...I want to make sure *I* get paid on time! lol
Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday weekend.
Until next time...
