Day 12

Hi everyone. Sorry about missing a post yesterday. I just could not be asked really. The weather was just plain horrible. K went out in the morning to play golf, and I think the highlight of my day was knowing that the rain messed up their game abit. I know I'm being mean here, but I really was happy the rain got them. lol.

I spent all day curled up, doing nothing, well except going to Waitrose for groceries. It was such a lazy day. I had intended to make two skirts for work this week, but my mood was ultra low, so I just chilled out.

I wore my Simplicity 2638 maxi dress, with a cardigan, and covered myself with a blanket for most of the day. Stuffing my face with Hagen Daz Dulce de Leche and chocolate fudge cake.

I could not even muster a smile!!

DAY 13 
The bad weather continues today, but fortunately its not raining, just cold. So I decided to take today's picture at my desk.

I hope I can sew something tonight.  I don't think I'll be able to finish anything because of the way I'm feeling, but it won't hurt to at least start something. I don't even know if I'll feel like sewing by the time I get home. I hope I do. If I don't, there's still some left over ice cream and chocolate cake. That should be more than enough to cheer me up.

Today I wore the Simplicity dress I made using a 1980's pattern, blogged about here. I did not tie a belt today, preferring to leave it loose, and it was really cormfortable.

  1. I hope you're feeling better! You've been a whirlwind of sewing activity so am sure it will do you good to have a break from it. I know you've still got pleeeeenty of fabulous thing to wear without whipping up anything new :)

  2. (((((((((HUGS))))):( I know what a bummer bad weather can be. I'm so happy to now live in Texas since Maryland can often takes you on a weather roller coaster. I'm sure inspiration will come back. Just go and play with your fabric. Sometimes just touching them they seem to scream "make something with me please". Also checking out blogs puts coal in my fire too.

  3. Hope the chocolate medicine has done its job and you feel much better now! You are allowed to have a break from sewing you know!

  4. Sorry you're down. At least you're stylish! Hope you get your mojo back soon.

  9. Dibs, don't despair. I'm sure you will feel more like sewing soon. Horrible weather always gets me down too. (And yes, food always helps! LOL) You do 'push' yourself so a rest might just be the right medicine. Hugs
