Excuses

Hello people! I have been absent from the blog again, despite my best intentions. I hate to blog without a picture and I have been too lazy to take and upload any. Besides, not too much sewing has been happening here. I was working on a bag, but I sewed the handles on wrong and since I was using a tweed (that LOVED to unravel), it was so difficult to see the stitches to pick them out. Major frustration followed and I tossed the whole thing in the barrel. Too bad because it would have been a cute bag! Plus, the general malaise that comes from living in New England during the winter always strikes me in January, so I haven't had the energy to do much at all. However, I'm planning to use this weekend to pull myself out of this funk! First up will be some work on this top. I have some pretty fabric to use and I'm going to be daydreaming of wearing it in Florida come March. Next week, Vogue patterns will be on sale so I'm going to pick up this one. I love the simplicity of the dress and the jacket will be a cute (and simple, I hope, it's unlined!) addition to my wardrobe. I have been daydreaming about sewing and reading tons of blogs, so hopefully I will be able to find some motivation!

Thanks for your comment on my blog about the pants. I wore them to work today. I'm glad you enjoyed my review.
