First, a little Mobbie update. A reader kindly emailed me to let me know that i was in fact nominated in two categories, Lifestyle and DIY. I didn’t event realize! You are able to vote in both categories (every day until the tenth *cough*). But, I am campaigning on DIY Just click on the badge below and vote, every day. I am shameless.
Right now, my closest competition is a multiple-authored blog. So, I’m really hustling for every vote I can get. If that means I have to write a new post every day and actually start sewing so I can remind you to vote, it’ a cross I will happily bear
What makes you finish a UFO? Finishing the red trench was one of my three major UFOs. I’m off next Friday and thinking of having a UFO long weekend. What are the rest of my UFOs?
This tuxedo jacket to go with my tuxedo pants. I have worn the business out of these pants I love them so! But, the jacket? Meh. The pocket placement got jacked (my fault). It took me months to buy lining. And now, I can’t find one of the already completed (but not sewn in) sleeves. Should I finish it? I dunno. I don’t know that I’ll love it with the pockets being off placement. I didn’t muslin either so I’m still not sure about the final fit.
This Hot Patterns Pyramid bag! I really want to finish this. Especially since when I got the bill from the print shop it was $250 for reducing the pattern! Don’t worry, it was resolved and reduced to $14 or so. But, still. It’s leather. It’s pretty much now all ready to go. I’m probably missing pieces from it too!
The third and fourth UFO? Nothing too serious. An in-progress-bra and a workout top that I kind of need. I just spent an obscene amount of money at City Sports buying running gear. Not that I’ll ever be a runner. But, I had to cut back on my ballet classes because I enjoy having heat in the winter and food on the table. I’ve been running all of two times but would like to stick with it until I can actually run one mile without wheezing and collapsing.
So, how many UFOs do you have floating? Which ones are you going to actually finish and which ones are you going to bail on?
