It is actually a good thing that the pattern I ordered last week has not come in yet, because last night the reality of my To-Do list for this weekend set in. It comes in the form of a pile of 22 napkins that need to be hemmed and sewn, 3 sandwich wraps to sew, and some keychains to put together–all while making sure we have groceries, a clean house, and make it to both of our commitments on Saturday! Now I know why I feel so busy.
Back to the pattern because that is what I am really excited about.
I found a dress online last week that I really liked but we’ll just say it was out of my price range (as in out of my Christmas/Birthday wish list price range even). So I decided to look at patterns, and I came across this one and decided I liked it almost as much as that dress that I cannot afford. I found some gorgeous ceylon blue cotton fabric and hope to have this finished in the next couple of weeks after I start whittling down that List (which I forgot to mention also involves 6 Christmas presents). The best part is that with a few modifications I plan to make (like adding a tie belt where the third set of buttons are) this will really be one of a kind and I can say “I made it.”
I’m off to tackle that napkin pile and am not even going to look at the mailbox until I’m at least half way through!
