First, thank you immensely for all the good thoughts on how to manage my time better and next steps with sewing and boyfriend management.
Second, we were off today for Good Friday!! And…. I’m totally sewing! Well, right now I’ve traced and cut, and I plan to sew all day tomorrow and Sunday.
I had two great deliveries today. First leathah….
I took advantage of FabricMart’s awesome 35 percent off sale and scored this gorgeous piece of black pigskin. JustGail said,
“Vegan, huh? My question is – will this affect your fabric purchases?? Is this the end of silk and wool for you? And what about the stash?”
I didn’t even think of that! Well, I didn’t ask and I’m not gonna! I will happily eat and cook seitan, tofu and tempeh without batting an eye. But, I’m not even going to get into fabric. Because, he would lose. I did ask Leslie if this counted as a fabric purchase and she said its lack of grain means it is NOT fabric and I have not stumbled again on the 2010 Fabric Fast. I’m desperate for a bag and think it’s time I graduated to leather.
My second delivery was totally unexpected:
From the Vegan. Because he’s awesome. And I fear I may become one of those annoying women who talks all. the. time. about how great her BF is. Ugh. Well, at least I don’t have the smartest kids in the world to talk to you about ;)
So, what am I sewing??
I’m going to a nice dinner in two weeks and have nothing to wear :) I blessedly have Friday off and no plans this Easter Weekend. I like this #107 from the May 2010 Burda Magazine.
I’m going to make it up in this orange and white striped denim / twill. Sigh. It’s been so long since I sewed, I forgot to make a swayback adjustment for the first time in like two years.
I’m sure it’ll all be fine. And, if not, I have enough extra for a back skirt piece!
