Do you have those sort of weeks where events conspire against your sewing time? I've had one of those sort of weeks - my day off on Tuesday - sort of disappeared. That's what happens when you work for your husband. You feel obliged to sort out problems. And the problem was our phone line was out - and for those of you fellow Aussies, you know what that means. Yes, hours on the phone, problem not resolved. Still not resolved today. Won't be resolved til late next week. Well, I had to get a little forceful (yes, little Sarah Liz). We are a medical practice, and that is not good enough. So, tomorrow, a satellite phone will be delivered. This is a new experience for me - I have never used one of those, so I better get to the practice early for instructions and to help the receptionist.
And our security system was taken out be lightening in the last storm. Been doing battle with insurance company and organising repairers report and quotes for fixing it. Yuk.
Moral - don't work for your husband!!!
So last night I was really peeved and worked the mood off in a sewing frenzy. And finished the garments I started on the weekend. I'm tired today because it was a late night!
And will have two casual garments soon to show you soon on this blog:
A new pair of casual pants:
I'll press them tonight. I often press cotton on the inside so I don't get shiny marks or seam marks on the outside. I press any little mid leg wrinkles on the outside very carefully to avoid the same problems.
And a new little skirt - I made it out of the leftovers from the pants, and some leftovers from a project some time back (pre-blog). Hence the band on the bottom of the skirt. I'll show you properly when I blog the skirt.
And I had some good news too - I got into a fourth year Psychology program - I am thrilled (if a little unsure how I am going to "do it all"). It's not the program of first choice, but I may get offers from other places where I have applied. But I am not going to be fussy about this - a foot in the door, is a foot in the door, is a foot in the door. The bird in the hand, etc.
It will mean I will have to change the Make a Garment a Month Challenge over the next few months - I'll have to set up a separate site that we can all post to. More on this later....
Take care everyone, where-ever you are...
