Today is cutting day. I will kick my boys off the kitchen table to draw somewhere else for about an hour. They seem to instinctively know when I want to do something with my fabric because they make a beeline to the table. However, today I'm sending them downstairs to organize some books and other things. Before breakfast, they will clean up their crayons, markers, and papers they left out last night.
On the cutting table for today:
1. A knit top
2. A summer dress
Summer is quickly winding down so these have to be made up pronto. In September I will work on my Burda coat that I cut out last March (or thereabouts). There should be more time to get these things done. I resigned from my volunteer work last night, and it was a huge weight off my shoulders. Sometimes you just know when it's the right time to leave and it was time. Now I have some extra time to invest in some big projects without constantly being distracted by volunteer issues that kept creeping up all the time. In some ways I will miss my involvement, but I sure won't miss trying to solve the problems. In a way, it's a very liberating feeling.
