Canceling all engagements...

...for the week. I still need to
1) finish the green silk Tribeca top. I got a lot of work done on it yesterday evening while the young fry of the family indulged their video game itch. Can't hear it as much in the sewing nook....

2) Finish cutting the replacement pieces for the last two knit dresses

3) remove the original, unflared skirt from the test dress so it can be replaced with the new flared skirt

4) make the five dresses I now have in my care. Dear Costume Mistress is going to try to convince one other person to make the other five.

All this by Saturday, if at all possible.

So, I will not be going to the monthly Scrabble (R) party tomorrow night. I will be sewing.

Hm. I may settle for just getting all the pieces attached to the green blouse, to finish the edges and add buttons/buttonholes later....


  1. I must commend you your stamina. If I had that much sewing to do in such a short amount of time, I would be totally freaking right now! Good luck.

  2. Sounds like a good plan. Sometimes sewing is just more important. Unfortunately, I CAN hear DS's video game play from my sewing room. At 14 he is trying out some colorful language too. Taking away the games seems to fix that for now.
