I hope I don’t jinx myself, but nausea is slowly leaving me. Tired and worn out, yes, but not as nauseated...unless I'm hungry. Lordy, the pounds are packing on!! I hate to be a whiner, so I'll stop at that :)
Something I am happy about is that I'm starting to feel a bit inspired. Oh my, how I’ve missed that! My wheels have been turning and the sketchbook has been pulled out and doodled in, but unfortunately the energy to complete such plans isn’t there. One sure sign that my creativity is returning is a fabric order I placed the other day. Gosh, it has been ages since I looked at fabric. I must admit, it was kind of fun. It was even more fun playing with it when it arrived.
Though I haven’t completely felt like it, I have been making myself do a little sewing here and there. In the end, I know that I’m better for it. My latest creation is a re-visit to a design I came up with last spring when I did my Dottie Vintage collection. Instead of using regular straps, I decided to use wide bias binding as straps and trim.
It still needs some tweaking, but that's no surprise (I like that part of the process).
I’m thinking this will be my next pattern, after I finish up the two that are currently 99% complete. I’m such a dufus, it wasn’t until someone asked about a pattern for this bag that I remembered that I had started working on the pattern for these bags last spring. I managed to find the file, so I’m back working on that, when I feel like it.
With those other patterns so close to completion I should be working on those, but what fun is that? I'm never one to complain about a happy distraction when the mood strikes!
