Lawdy-mercy, I've been gone a while! I just can't seem to get myself together to sew anything or to write a post. I did hem that retro-ish orange shirt, but I need to remove some basting stitches that are visible and tack the front together to prevent gaping before I wear it. Plus we've been having a heat wave and that's a hot shirt. Beyond that, the only sewing I've done has been on Scout shirts for the boys.
Besides my low-mojo, part of the problem has been 4 lectures coming up in September - hey, the first one is Friday! Those are hanging over my head, along with my popcorn kickoff tomorrow night for Cub Scouts - remember I'm the Popcorn Kernel. Speaking of hanging over my head, wanna see my hat?
I think I'll feel better once this week is behind me, so expect great things in the coming month. I'm going to FINISH those pants I started if it kills me, and I WILL wear that shirt at some point. (I will KEEP talking to myself like this, and I'm SURE it'll get me fired up.)
Oh, and beyond sewing, I want to go see The Help but haven't had time yet - anybody see it? And I started Duma Key by Stephen King (you know, on a different level than The Help and The Art of Racing in the Rain, but I've been loving this guy since I was 11 years old), so I also have a hard time putting that down to go fight with zippers and knits. Like Robbie (who may have a new grandbaby by now) said, sewing is supposed to be fun so if you don't feel like it, don't feel guilty.
