I have not been the usual productive me the last few months. I haven't felt like sewing or blogging or doing much of anything. Besides being sick constantly with a string of colds and a bout with the flu, I have been lazy and a tiny bit depressed. Not clinically depressed or anything, just not my normal, bouncing-off-walls, energy-to-burn, spazztastic self.
Well, I want to throw off the shackles of apathy and get back down to business. In order to kick start my return to the land of the stitcher, I have finished my cowl neck dress (pictures will follow very soon) and I have started work on a coat for Hartley.
And I have purchased fabric.
What better way to salve a broken creative soul than to slather it with the tools of the trade? Nothing gets my juices flowing more than some new fabric and Fabric Mart was very obliging by placing their wares on sale. So, I imbibed.
I mean, really, how could I resist these gorgeous Armani suiting fabrics?
Or these fabulous boucles, which will transform into pretty jackets?
Or these luscious bamboo knits that can be whipped up into amazing new tops?
Or these Cache ponte knits that are so excellent for some comfy winter dresses?
