Productive sewing weekend

I lost the first half of the weekend to a migraine, and then perked up for the rest of it.  I made a pair of pajama pants as a birthday gift using a soft flannel in a boyish hockey print.  Halfway through I was afraid I’d end up posting them on CraftFail because they were huge and weirdly proportioned, and then I made them work by making some changes.  I only halfheartedly followed the pattern and didn’t have any actual measurements to work with, which might have caused some of the initial problems.  I got them done before he returned from a wedding in Cabo and he seems to like them, so I’m calling them a success.  When the camera batteries recharge I’ll post pictures.  I look forward to making another pair of pajama pants, this time for me.

I also made a quick apron using an old red skirt I haven’t worn in years.  I just need to hand sew down the waistband and it’s finished, and then I can make another apron with the other half of the skirt too.

Finally, I pulled out about 10 fabrics from my stash to choose from tomorrow for a baby quilt in light blue, light green, and yellow.  Everytime I’m in my sewing room listening to the adult contemporary lite radio station, I wonder why I don’t sew all the time.  I really like it, I feel relaxed, energized, and focused all at the same time.

    Wouldn’t life be awesome if we were ‘relaxed, energized and focused all at the same time’ ALL of the time. Yeah, I would love if I could make this into a life-supporting career…we’ll see…
