There is just no way.
Like, how could it be Friday already? And I never did a Choir Post?
Simplicity 2603 which, as this was taken at the end of the day that included dinner at the noodle place and a bowl of drippy asian noodles, had a spot that is conveniently concealed by the point of the jacket.
I've been working in ten-minute increments on a sheerish navy Plaza Jacket; it only needs hems but the poly burnout fabric is not being very cooperative and I've got to hand baste the whole thing. So it's taking a bit. But the choir colors for August are tan, emerald and navy, so I *should* get to wear it before the month is over.
This ten-minutes-at-a-time stuff is killing my sewing mojo. Oh, it's better than nothing, but, wow, projects that used to take a weekend are now taking a month or more. I can live with this, but I'm not enjoying it much.
But, maybe as an enticement to get it together so I can sew more, there are New Patterns In. Had to make a trip to Hancock's today...because I lost some things I bought last year...and Vogue patterns were on sale. So I grabbed a handful. Each of these has something I like...and two of them have A/B/C/D cup sizing. I figured it was worth $5 to not have to do a FBA. If I ever get around to really making something.
The missing things were the iron-on applique letters I needed for my Girls Only Award Stole. I'd made them for the girls last year, with their graduation year on the sash, and decided I'd make one for me, too, with the pins that I'd earned teaching the units. My plan was to have it available for any promotional events we might do regarding the girls ministry program. But I didn't get to it last year, and I looked and looked and couldn't find the letters this week, so I had to run to Hancocks.
However, as it has just been made public, we are doing away with the K - 12 girls ministry program and replacing it with a program for girls in grades k - 5 only. So I'm kinda late with my promo plan. But I needed a place to put the pins anyway, so I grabbed the appliques and finished off the stole.
Not really sure what I'm going to do with it; I might be able to use it in Wednesday night's advancement service but that would be it.
At this point, it's just going to be a bit of memorabilia of eight years spent with some amazing young ladies.
But, who knows...with 3 Teen Girls classes no longer on my plate, I might sew a little more.
At least, that's what I'm telling myself.
