progress is such a lovely thing
I spent the evening sewing with sadievale this evening. We have great fun listening to B's casino mix CDs (from Maegan's bachelorette party) and guessing what CD they were from. Yes we are easily amused. :>

My new jacket toile is going quite well - so glad I switched projects. The more I look at my green and brown stripe the more excited I get. I think this will be super fun to wear. *shakes head* I just can't believe the idea never occored to me before, the fabric has only been sitting on my shelf for ages.

The bodice toileing is finished and the sleeve getting there so I figured out that I have enough fabric for a matching skirt too. I might even be able to squeeze out a ruffle. We'll see.

I do have pics but am feeling too tired to post... tomorrow. Now I'm off to bed.

I know that feeling! I just discovered I have the perfect fabric for a Regency dress and coordinating Spencer jacket, just sitting there, for years. Silly Jenni!

I think if fabric sits too long you stop seeing it... nice to know I'm not the only one!

Oh Spencer... for this year? I really want to make a Spencer but we'll see.

I'm so glad you're feeling good about the switch! I'm really looking forward to seeing how it all comes together.
