First it was jury duty. I was released on the 2nd day, but I went straight to work.
I had a lot to get done to take a week off.
A week of vacation. Well, a week of visiting family.
Which is wonderful and was wonderful but it's not a go-someplace-and-chill-out vacation, if you know what I mean.
Then we came back from a week out of town. I think...as of last night...I've finally caught up the work that piled up while I was gone.
Now I have to deal with the work that piled up while I tended to the first pile.
I've actually had to bump my part-time hours up at work from 24/wk to 28/wk.
I've finished 4 out of 12 online classes that will eventually net a Master's Degree of sorts.
Can I just say...I've been busy?
I've actually taken choir wardrobe photos for the last 3 weeks but haven't managed to post them.
I've been wrangling pillows through the sewing machine for decor for the women's conference that kicks off two weeks from tomorrow.
I only had 7 to cover; it's not that involved.
But life has been that crazy.
The silk Plaza jacket ...which I have decided to leave the sleeves off of...is still in progress.
Very beautiful, very frustrating fabric to work with all around.
But I wish I had decided to leave the sleeves off before I used up so much fabric trying to cut them out.
I could've had a kewler, longer vest.
I have some beautiful fabrics I want to sew but I am going get the crazy Plaza topper finished off before I cut anything else out.
And I have to finish the pillows before I can do that.
Meanwhile...here's the choir photo from last Sunday, in this month's designated colors of black and white...
Yeah. Old stuff w/ a purchased T shirt. I just have had no luck sourcing white T shirt knit that isn't sheer.
I wouldn't have time to make white T's now anyway.
Maybe I can get back to the sewing room...after the conference... :-)
