If nothing else, December so far has been busy.
Busy busy busy.
You may have noticed that I haven’t posted a thing since Thanksgiving…
You may not have. That’s good too.
(I’m going to whine for a bit, just to let you know.)
Being a college senior is tough. Can I mention real life is on the horizon?
I’m trying at all costs to avoid such a thing. I’m applying for graduate schools, and hopefully it’ll work out for me.
Please cross your fingers for me.
But my applications are pretty much in, and that makes me terribly happy.
(I’m now done whining, I think.)
I’m back at home, so I’ve brought a number of projects to do while I’m here, to supplement the ones I’ve already got here.
Here’s all the beads I’ve got, since I’ve tasked myself to make my Belle and Claudia beadwork while I’m home. I also brought home other beading projects, but there’s less of a push for those.
I’ve also got a jacket in the works. Years ago, I got this pattern, along with some dark purple bottomweight from Joann’s, and I think it’s high time to make it up. I’m planning on view F, the vaguely military view. I’ve got this really neat quilting fabric that I’m going to make a lining from, as well as using it for the contrasts. The fabric is pastel – rainbow with gold crackle running around.
There were a number of ready to wear items that I’m still planning on fixing up, I just didn’t get to them this summer while I was home. Here’s one, a shirt that is just a little too tight around the arms, so I’m thinking of removing the fabric loop and adding an elastic one.
I had a little war with myself, a few weeks ago, on whether or not to buy the Archer pattern. I told myself that I didn’t need a button up shirt pattern, because I never wear them, especially a long sleeve one. But then I thought, maybe I don’t wear them because I’ve never gotten one that fit. So the second voice one, and I’ve got the pattern cut out. Just need to cut this awesome (and free) fabric, and to sew it all up!
I keep telling myself to finish up my crochet sweater, so that’s on the roster, as well as a sundress out of lovely pink fabric from my mom, and a ballroom dress, and a corset, and maybe a t-shirt, etc. So lots of stuff. We’ll see how far I get!
Hope you all have wonderful holidays, if I don’t talk to you before then! It’s quick approaching the new year!
