I feel a bit more prepared this week & like I actually got something done for the first time in a few weeks. That's always a good thing!
Started: I think I mentioned starting the Sis Boom Jamie dress last week, but I didn't actually get any work done until this Sunday. Not a whole lot yet, but I've gotten the waistbands (I'm adding one to the back as well) put together, and everything except the skirt cut out.
Right now I'm working with some cheaper fabric I picked up so I can make sure I get all my sizing & fitting worked out before using the good fabric I originally picked out.
In progress: The last two origami bags are still waiting to be made. I keep thinking that having to keep them on this list will make me more likely to finish them, but that just doesn't seem to be working!
Still working on piecing the pairs for my Postage Stamp quilt. I've got quite the pile going now, but I didn't work on them at all this week.
Non-sewing related - we got a bit more work done on Goose's room this weekend. When I stripped the wallpaper a few weeks ago, we realized there was quite a bit of minor wall damage. Nothing terrible, but the walls do need to be patched. Unfortunately, our walls aren't perfectly smooth & we're having a hard time matching the texture. It's really not a noticeable texture, but it sure it noticeable when there are smooth patches all over! Right now it's a big mess since we've got test spots of all sorts of stuff on the walls. Not a pretty picture!
Completed: I finished up the Simple Skirt from Dana at Made. I promise you, this is a super simple project! I could have easily completed it in an hour, start to finish, if I'd had enough time to sit down & work on it the first night I started.
I'm really happy with how it turned out & it's nice & comfortable. It was even quicker since I used the selvedge rather than hemming it, but I like the look.
It was pretty hard to get pictures of this while I was wearing it since the only full-length mirror I have is pretty small, and shoved into the back of my closet behind my wedding dress. Great place for it, huh? My only option was to stand on the edge of the bathtub. I promise I was careful. :)
Need to start: Two Keyka Lou basic wallets, a Christmas present (from last year, ugh), the Beautiful Balance Checkbook Cover, April's String Me Along bee block...seems like there are more, but that's all I can think of right now!
Until next time...
