• Redraft the Granville shirt again. Ponder whether I can bribe LiEr to come to Malibu and help me with fit. I have both sunshine and Nutella.
My alteration/mend pile is so backed up the kids have outgrown them.
I LOVE your wallets! And can't wait to see the rest (except for maybe that sweater dress 😝). I'll be working hastily (or maybe my usual pokily) on a tote bag to carry 2 American Girl dolls. The plan is in place (till I change my mind - again)! I don't dare procrastinate any longer. Or maybe I could.....
Rosemary B here:Yes. Today we will make a huge dent in our pile
Hee, hee, hee, thanks for making my weekend a little brighter, you can show us the sweater dress much later........and mending pile is gone....I have started to give them a 3 strike rule,,,then the piece of clothing is mine to do whatever I want with.......
Making Valentines here. 3 kids with 24 kids per class. 72 Valentines plus 6 teacher/aide Valentines...
Brava, MaryAnne! Last year we handmade ours, and it WAS fun. We don't handmake them every year, so last year was a treat for us.
Let's see: sew new zippers into 3 jackets, continue refining chopper (mitten) pattern, get back to fitting/drafting swimming shorts for me before yet another summer comes & goes without them, mend children's pants before they are outgrown, finish 2014 Halloween costume for 2015, finish hand-sewing the dratted silk lining into the knitted wool cardi/jacket thing (and hopefully find that it looks and feels as nice in practice as it did in theory), and (hallelujah!) my sweater/jacket liner rehashing went off with only one hitch!Uff da. Looks like so much when I write it down... :)
Jenny: uffda, indeed. Don't put deadlines on any of them so that when you do finish them in, say, 10 years' time, you can say, "Whoa! I'm ahead of schedule!" That said, quite a few of those projects sound like they're almost-done or little-to-do, so don't give up! You'll reach the end of your pile yet!
Thank you for talking to me! If you have a question, I might reply to it here in the comments or in an email.
