Never wait too long.

I am a great procrastinator. Unfortunately this usually gets me into some type of difficulty.



I said that I was going to sew in the New Year! Okay at 6:00 in the evening I was in Wal Mart crafting section looking for fabric. It's not like I do not have fabric, I have a wardrobe full of fabric but I just was not feeling any of those just now. Nor did I feel the need for any fabric in the store either.


So I looked at the yarn to see if I could find the right color for the comfort shawl that I was to crochet. Nothing looked right. We left the store with my purchases of, a 20 oz bottle of Mt. Dew ,batting for a crib sized quilt and 3 magazines.



Some friends came over to watch House of Payne but they were all old episodes, I guess the new season starts next week. By 10:00 they had went home and My sweetie went to work. I went into the sewing studio and searched for the perfect fabric .....after a while the fabric just had to be nice .........and after a while longer I was just searching for something to work on.


11:00 I finally decided to finish a blouse that I had laid out and cut out back in June, 08 M4591





Since everything was ready I read the guide sheet and I got started and soon was totally into what I was doing. Here are some reason why you should never wait too long to finish something that you are making to wear.

1) If there was extra fabric after cutting out the pattern you now have no idea were it is.

This pattern is single salvage and the neck tie has two pieces that are sown together. A right side and a left side. I had cut two left sides. I had no idea where the extra fabric could have been so now I will have a v-neck sleeveless blouse.

2) If you are making something for you to wear you should not have gain any weight between the time you cut out the pattern and the time you actually make the blouse.

When I tried it on just to make sure it fit I was surprised. It did fit, but it was a little tight. So I took out the side seams and re did the seams with a small seam allowance. Tried it on again, more incentive to lose some weight.

3 )Why did I think this pattern would look good in this material is beyond me. But I have a V-neck sleeveless shirt which I will gladly were with a jacket!

It's great when you are with friends of like mind who love the same things you do.  Well this weekend time to capitalize on that idea.
Time to Sew Together!!
I sent out the invites actually it was a series of text and phone calls and created a buzz for myself that is very uplifting!  I am so excited. 
The way I have envision this;  everyone will come over about 6 to 7 people and bring what ever project they are working on and sew in the same room together.  I just love this idea!   
JN is going to make a apron for her make up job.  She was asked to do the make for the  brothers who will be on screen at our Regional Convention!  I am so happy for her.   AA will be making curtains she is getting things ready  for her redecorating month.

Life in a Scheduling Room

It has been some time since I felt it necessary to say anything about my job.  However this is something that i need to address at this time.  My work associates range in ages and this diversity helps our department funtion in an ackward yet somewhat effective way.  One coworker who is very verbal about everything that goes wrong.  You know when she is not well because she is quiet and there are times when she is very focus on what she is doing and if that concentration is broken so is her silence.  For the most part this does not bother me except when she takes me out of my zone and then my work rhythm is interrupted.   I am sure i am guilty of doing the same to her i think everyone does.  Then there is next coworker a beautiful young lady that gives the impression of being younger than she actually is and so I have a tendency to feel like  need  to protect her.  That is something I had to stop doing it was not needed and i hope I did not offend her.  Her method working is not as pr…
