All the sewing I am doing is homework which is rather unsatisfying. Trying out different stitche on 10 pieces of muslin....blah. Yes, it is nice that I am learning these skilss but exciting not so much.
Last night I spent almost 5 hours on homework, the night before 4 hours. Because this homework is overtaking my sewing life I need to be proactive and make a list of what I want to do Friday,Saturday and Sunday:
1. Put the zipper in McCall's 5150. Kelli, do not worry about sending me in the wrong direction. The consenus is a non-descript cream/beige zipper. I just agree with what you and everyone else who chimed in said. And if I hate, but I know I wont, its just a zipper and easy to rip out.
2. Put bias binding trim on the sleeves of the Mint Chip dress. Then put the buttons on.
3. Cut out the one piece of the 18th century stays that I mesed up the first time. Sew as much of the stays as possible. One side is done, just need to do the other side. I havent blogged about this because it seems to be outside the scope of the blog but if anyone is interested, just let me know.
4. Overcast the facings in McCall's 5150 and the 1918 dress.
Ok, this does not seem overwhelming. Let see how much I can get through! I cant even think about next week's homework....add that in somewhere because it is my company's monthly event which means a killer couple of long days next week. Maybe having this list out there in the universe will help me focus. Normally, I dont care but I have some deadlines looming.
I am trying to stop another weekend from passing by with no work done....darn vacations!
