Ok, it’s just me that’s back, but I really wanted to use this picture. Hah. I’m on an interim laptop until I can get a new hard drive for my old one — not the perfect scenario, but it beats being without a computer.
We don’t have poltergeists here — at least, I assume we don’t, as nothing has levitated yet — but we’re definitely in the dog days of summer. These are the times that try moms’ souls. The kids have been camped, enriched and entertained within an inch of their lives. School doesn’t start for another two weeks. Even TV is getting boring. And it’s just way too hot.
Also, I have sewist’s block.
What to make next?
I like this pattern and I have the materials to make View B with the short sleeves.
McCall 6410. I especially like the backpack.
Or I could start my fall sewing — denim and camo bottoms. That’s kind of where I’m leaning at the moment. It’s just….I did mention the heat, right? I enjoy hot and heavy but not in my sewing.
Tomorrow, we set off to finish (well, mostly) back-to-school shopping. Oldest has outgrown absolutely everything he owns and will be naked in short order. I’d try sewing for him, but I’m pretty sure he’s growing faster than I can complete anything.
Excuse me while I go stick my entire upper torso out of the window and see if I can catch a stray breeze.
