I honestly tried to sew a lot over the long weekend. Does draping count?? Well the tedious handsewing, has to count, doesn’t it?
On Saturday, I did a couple of hours of the aforementioned tedious handsewing. Lines of running stitches. Why…well to finish the calash I started in a class in July. I have now sewn 5 channels for the bamboo. Go me…….I do not even have a clue why I am doing this. I don’t need a calash. It was peer pressure I tell you.
A calash is a type of bonnet. Though what I need with a bonnet is beyond me!
It was super hot weekend. So motivation was at an all time low. Plus, I was being handed glasses of wine…..yes almost as if they appeared out of thin air straight into my hand……so what could I do but imbibe. Wine and sewing are not a good combination for me. So, after spending 45 minutes ironing my fabric for a different project, all I could muster up was draping it over a dress form to get ideas. Some pins were used in the draping but, alas, no fabric was cut over the weekend.
I wanted to sew last night but it was so hot I just couldn’t. The problem was that I was supposed to throw together a dress for a picnic this weekend and that has not even motivated me to take action!
