Four days on antibiotics and I still don't feel like myself. I spent yesterday catching up on things around the house that culminated with a trip to Home Depot. Taking care of a house is a lot of work. I understand why I lived in an apartment for so long! Somethings not working you call the Super. Something not working in the house, find someone to fix it...and a lot of trips to Home Depot or Lowes. Thank goodness I live in a condo with an association so someone else handles all of the outside responsibilities!
That leads me to this...
The only sewing I've done in two weeks. This is the pantry in the kitchen. It use to have a folding door on it. It fell off. We tried everything to get it back on. It kept falling off. The tension rod and curtain is the solution.
...and of course since I've been sick I haven't felt much like sewing...even with spending some considerable time in the sewing cave yesterday. Finally this morning, I decided that I should work on this dress. I pinned it to Pinterest 9 weeks ago.
In that time I've managed to collect a black 'n white lace ponte from Fabric Mart (which is of course sold out) and a Sophia black double knit from fabric.com.
I will use the pattern alterations that I made to my TNT dress pattern for the black pleather and ponte dress for this version. I'll just add short sleeves.
I love this black pleather and ponte dress. It's easy to wear and I feel very professional in it. I'm making a ponte dress now because while the temps are rising, there is still a very up and down feel to the weather, so a ponte dress will work for a few more months.
Like I said a post or two back - I have another idea for the Oona Fat Quarter Challenge but I need to get a win under my belt before I go there again. I also need to get the Deer & Doe Plaintain tees made up for my coworkers. Actually I thought about working on them today but again, I need a win before working on something that could shut down my fledgling mojo.
So this is what I'm working on today, in the sewing cave, while the NBA Quarterfinals play on the TV.
...as always more later!
