The weekend has been filled with naps, lunches out, rain, flowers, sunshine, walks, church, catching up with friends, and time in the sewing room. I am working on some new zipper pouches (let’s call them zippies from now on, OK? That’s easier to type.). The zippes are for the Female Art Collective, and have learned a little something new about myself along the way.
What started off as a one evening, 90 minute max. project has turned into a two (maybe three if I do not get off the computer and up to the sewing room!) evening trial of new designs. Rather than just form a little assembly line and make 3-4 zippies that are all similar, albeit utilizing different fabrics, I had to make each one unique. Not that this is a bad thing. I like unique. I also like productivity. “unique” does not usually equal “productive” in my world!
These zippies are different sizes, some are pieced, and some have special stitching. Each will be beautiful in its own right. Each will take more time than it should!
In case you have been on the edge of your seat wondering, I have yet to decide on a dress pattern or even if we are actually going to attend the Ball. That means you still have time to chime in and let me know which you like best!
I am also incredibly excited to reveal my big secret to you tomorrow
(remember, it involves food!)
I hope your weekend has been filled with many good things!
