I'm feeling a little cranky this morning. I haven't touched my machines in about a week! Today will likely be no different as I have to do some major food shopping this morning and go to my sons' baseball game tonight under the lights at 8 p.m. Tomorrow they have a 10 a.m. game so we're going to be tired tomorrow morning. And housecleaning never really gets done but I have to do a little of that.
Maybe if I can get a half hour, I can put together my wall hangings. It would be so great to actually finish something while it still is in season. I've been wanting to whip up a wrap top, the pattern is already altered hanging by a clip on the side of my fridge. Same one that has been there for months. My coat is still cut out on the couch, that one for months too. Those are very high priority garments. DS#2's jacket is also high priority--he desparately needs one. I'll pull out two kids' jacket patterns from my stash and we'll decide on the right one. There's a ton of Polarfleece in my stash so the fabric is there. It's just finding the time.
Did anyone see the fabric.com Deal of the Day yesterday? I saw this awesome babywale light blue and brown houndstooth fabric at 6 a.m. and by 6:45 p.m. when I was going to drool over it again it was GONE! I couldn't believe it. There was at least 50 yards of this stuff when I looked at 6. I really wanted that for a belted jacket/top. Brown's not my color but it had enough of the right shade of blue to work. Oh well--you snooze you lose. And it's probably just as well. I have some lovely wools that have been drycleaned in my front closet just hanging there for at least a year.
And my biggest bummer is not being able to go to PR Day in NYC on the 11th. That's my birthday of all days. And I would LOVE to go fabric shopping on my birthday but I have to go to a softball tournament on that day. I love going to the tournaments, but it's my freaking BIRTHDAY! And I can't go to the leather store, Metro Textiles, MJ Trims, oh...it hurts! It really hurts. But it is what it is and can't be changed.
Time to make the coffee.
