Don't some weeks just make you feel so tired, like you are not going to be able to catch up? I can tell it is going to be one of those weeks for me. This week is going to be filled with parent issues, work, cleaning up and going to see Mr 19 year old on Friday. He is in a two day swim meet, so we thought this would be a good time for a visit. There are a few things I need to clean up and get organized, even here on this blog. I have some photos of some projects lingering around that I haven't showed you yet. So now seems to be the time to get all of that out and organized so I can start over fresh again.
These two scarves were knit up and sent away to far off friends. Projects 5 and 6 completed for the year. With the 180 yards used to make these my total yardage of the year is 1,300. Hooray!
I have brought out my sewing machine, and my serger from the closet where they have lived for years. I used to make Halloween costumes for my children, that is until they requested costumes just like all their friends. Those were store bought, plastic, with crazy masks, not the creative ones I made. I was amazed that I even remembered how to use these machines.
I decided I needed a few comfortable clothes for work. My behind is expanding and my comfort level in my clothes is decreasing. I move around a lot at work and I am on the floor for hours so I need something that moves with me. Yoga pants, I think I found the answer. The problem is I am tall, and my legs are thin, mind you not in good shape, just thin. I look silly with these wide legs that are so popular with these type of pants. So I decided to buy a few pair and give them a makeover. I measured a few inches in from the outside seam, measured up 36 inches, drew a line and sewed the seam. I cut off the excess and there you go, nice pants for work. I like them so much I made some capri length pants, too. I should be ready for work now and much more comfortable. Of course I could work out more to get in better shape, but that doesn't seem to be a great option for me time-wise right now.
While my little buddy was here visiting I finished up an order for the etsy shop. Fun, felted heart shape earrings. I made 30 of them in different colors, very fun. With the left over wires and beads I made a bracelet, what do you think?
I think it will be fun to wear for Valentine's Day.
How is your week going? Are you getting all caught up and organized?
