It’s rough having a hobby that brings you joy while at the same time having to comply with the mundane demands of everyday life. Fulfilling work obligations and other non-sewing responsibilities can be a drag. And that, friends, is the story of the last month or so.
In regards to the Pattern Stash Contest . . . well . . . something has to be said for having goals, right? There was Simplicity 2451, my journey into sexual ambiguity, which I have already documented. Butterick 5354 was the only pattern out of the four that I completed and would make again.
I nearly finished McCall’s 6126. I had to jury rig some things to make it work so I would decidedly not make it again. I’m working on reviews of both patterns–you’ll see.
Simplicity 2614 got the short end of the stick as I never had a chance to touch it. One fine day I will tackle the FBA that is surely to be a part of making that blouse. But for now, I’ll just talk about sewing it the way some women talk about meeting the one.
I also found the time to make McCall’s 5563the week before last. Mayhaps I’ll review that as well. For now, I must away. I have to find the wherewithal to fix my face to take on Monday. The reviews will, eventually, come.
