First, let me talk about the Simplicity 2451 skirt I have been working on. If I would have worked on it last night, instead of watching Celebrity Apprentice (which was hilarious, by the way) I would have been showing you pictures today. But I didn't. In fact, I made a decision last week that I was cutting out most of my TV watching to do more productive things that I enjoy (like sewing and writing), and I have been sticking faithfully to that plan, but last night I just wanted to relax and turn my brain off for a little while. It worked. I laughed and laughed, and I will most likely be watching next week = ).
As far as the skirt goes, tonight is "invisible zipper insertion night"!!!! I have my zipper foot all ready to go, and I will be coming out of my sewing room with a well placed zipper!! That is my mission, anyhow. You know, I can't say I am fearful of putting the zipper in, as much as I am just hesitant. I had the realization that new skills make me a little antsy because I hate using a seam ripper and want to get it right the first time. Uhhh, such a perfectionist! Now I sit in my sewing room and chant "It's o.k. to use the seam ripper" whenever I am practicing something new.
Do you want to hear something funny? I dream about sewing! I had a dream the other night that there was a big crowd of people and we were all going to a special event, and (yes) everyone needed to have their garments hemmed!! Of course I was the only one there who knew how to do it, so I just kept hemming garment after garment until I woke up! The worst part of the whole thing was that I loved it! I had a dream about being a slave to hemming and I loved it! I'm sure each person dreams about what they uniquely love to do, or what they do a lot, so that got me thinking...
Have you ever dreamed about sewing? If so, what was it about?
PS--If you missed the Simplicity 99 cents pattern sale at Joanns last week, Hobby Lobby has them on sale this week for 99 cents also.
