Here’s the problem with blogging, I actual blog all day long but the words never get to the computer. That’s because it’s all being done in my head! (Okay, I’ll admit that my family has caught me talking out loud too.) Wouldn’t be nice if there was an affordable gadget that would just take a voice recording and type out the words for us? What a time-saver that would be. Between my last post and the review for PR, I was online for three hours! I could have made a t-shirt in that time. If it weren’t so much fun, I’d have lots of time on my hands, right? Yay, right.
Yesterday I was ready to post about a big order at FFC for some ITY knits. It seems that everytime I look for knits I’m drawn to the prints, but I need some solids. I just wanted to find out what everybody else thought. Then today I read Shannon’s post. Hmmm. And one of the things that held back my order was that I’m not sure about the quality – especially from FFC. Well, that led me to a Google search for ITY, which led me to this thread on PR (of course!). Hmmm. I’ve decided that if Marji liked it, and described it as light-medium weight which is what I wanted, the order’s going through. Just one enabler after another, after another, after another…lol
For a long time I have been happily immersed in my summer wardrobe. And then the blog chain got me. Dawn posted that she was getting in the mood to plan for fall. The seed is planted. I tried to fight it. Then, someone else starts blogging about fall, then Dawn has all of her fabrics picked out! Arrrrgh! I’m behind. I’ve got to catch up, what am I going to make for fall? At this point I’ve collected some favorite fall outfits from style.com; I bought a cheap-O sweater knit ($1.50) that matches two fall fabrics at home; I’ve sketched out a four-piece mini-wardrobe of which a key piece is a jumpsuit (yes, I said jumpsuit); and last night I found the perfect vintage jumpsuit pattern to make that creation a little easier. Today I'm back thinking and sewing about summer. I think this is called “wardrobe limbo”, well at least it’s one version of “wardrobe limbo”. Thank goodness Shannon is just starting some summer sewing. I think that alone will help me finish up my summer stash.
Well, another hour gone, thanks for letting me vent!
Do I sew, do I blog? Do I sew, do I blog? Do I sew, do I blog? I know you can relate, I’ve read your blog!
