Said by me at the dentist’s office the other day “I accidentally went to Macy’s on the way over here”. Maybelle in the office couldn’t stop laughing. Hey, I can either walk around the block, or through Macy’s Union Square flagship store. What would you do? Exactly.
I have so many crafty ideas and projects planned! I’m brimming with inspiration. Sadly, I’m lacking time. I’m only home for a few days and then am gone for two stinking weeks. (My employer is understaffed so summer means more flights and lots more work. Luckily they just announced a huge plan to hire, so yippy skippy, my slothlike ways may be back soon!) I must scale my crafty plans to the amount of time I have available, I’m not one that is able to start a project and pick it up again two weeks later and remember what the hell I’d been thinking. Keeping notes is not my MO.
I’ll begin by swatching for a colorwork pullover based on this adorable Garnstudio Drops pattern. I accidentally order some Knit Picks Telemark and am thinking of a pullover with long sleeves and normal body length. So swatching, doable aspiration for the alloted time.
Sewingwise, I love this Leia dress and downloaded the pattern. I have to piece the pattern together and trace of a copy. Somewhat doable, perhaps with a bit of focus? I’ve not used a Japanese pattern before, but the instructions are pictoral and it’s not a complicated dress. See Yoshimi’s blog for her lovely version (as well as her fab work). So surely I can tape a pattern together before going back to work?
I’m also loving listening to free audio books from Librivox. My flight got to SFO at midnight and I listened to two chapters of my current book in my car on the way home. No feeling tired, I was too into my book. And it’s free!
Ok, enough links. Time to do something!
