Craft Lounge 2009

I completely over-scheduled my week off at the holidays and left myself absolutely no time for crafty pursuits. I have a growing list of projects, some started, some promised and some just in my head. Here is the round up.

Still not complete:
  • My pants and matching jacket - I've essentially been working on this since August!!!!!!!
  • Buying a new sewing machine
Gifts/promised projects:
  • Pants for my nephew Orpheus
  • More shirts for Phineas with fabric from my stash
  • A diaper bag for a friend who is having a baby
In my head:
  • More pants for myself!
  • A sweater/shrug made in knit.
  • Altering most of my pants and several tee shirts
I am taking some time off in the next few weeks specifically to get the first two taken care of so I can move on to some of the other projects that are waiting for me. A muses' work is never done...

Ahem...some muses still have not received anything from the workshop and are feeling a little left out. Has my song gone silent?

Darling, you forget.... http://fivemuses.blogspot.com/2008/09/five-muses-sweatshop.html

That was a labor of love if ever there was one! That said, I do owe you something for the beach.

ahem - well - not to be pushy - but I do have a pattern for a perfect pair of summer pants at my house that I am hoping might just make it through the craft lounge pre-June 2009. Any chance?

And another gentle reminder, someone was supposed to order prints for a wedding album... maybe with white borders...

Magenta said...

or we can edit and order them together if you like.

my birthday is approaching...

Sheesh! I am never going to make anything for myself, am I?

Yes, that is possible... if you find fabric that you like for the pants. That was actually the hold up.
