Monday is not my favorite day, like many people, I’m sure. On Mondays, my hubby goes to work very early, which means I have the honor and duty to get up with our toddler at the lovely hour of 5 am. Ugh. I much prefer the days when hubby goes to work later and so the honor and duty is his, and I can sleep in until 7. Which is a much more reasonable time to get up, especially after staying awake until almost midnight enjoying a quiet house, a good book and several cups of herbal tea.
I did have a productive weekend, just not in the sewing room. I conquered Mt Dishes!!! For the first time in, well, a very long time, my kitchen counter was clear of all dirty dishes…for about 15 minutes. But now that I’m on top of the mountain, I mean to stay there. So as soon as I post this, off I will go to wash dishes…if the power stays on. The wind is howling and we’ve already lost power once today…just for a little while, but I’d be far from surprised if it went off again tonight.
Let’s see…I did get the two custom bags sent out. Here are the final posed pics…aren’t they lovely?
I’ve already heard from the new owner of the Ginger Blossom (on the left) bag…she was thrilled…and I’m thrilled that she is so happy! The other bag is going to Canada, and hopefully it’s new owner will also be very happy with her bag and accessories.
Next up…I’m finalizing details for the JD Aviary bag and I’m starting tomorrow on a Mix It Up apron for a customer in the UK. I’m thinking the layout will be something like this:
The top fabric will also be the waistband and there will be another stripe of the multi-color dots (Vintage Dots) on the very bottom. I’ve changed around the layout about ten times, but I’m pretty sure I like this one the best and will start cutting it out tomorrow.
There is one other thing I’ve been working on:
I’m about 18 weeks along now…my last three babies have come at 39 weeks, so if this wee one follows the trend, I’m just about, nearly, almost halfway through this pregnancy. I’ve haven’t for sure felt any movement yet…but soon, I think. And I’m also out of my “regular clothes”…which means I will be sewing up some maternity skirts in the next few days. Since my last baby, I’ve stopped wearing pants and at any rate, my maternity wardrobe, which has seen much service these last ten years, is in dire need of a injection of new things…maybe even some shirts, too…we’ll see.
Off to the dishes and then bed! Five a.m. will be here sooner than I’d like.
