Iâ€™ll blame it on the 60mph wind gusts weâ€™ve been getting today. Because I swear, I did not POKE myself in the eye, although itâ€™s felt like that all afternoon. I have spent the last few hours with tears streaming down my face, and my nose running in sympathy, because I did not have a contact lens case and my glasses with me. I took out the lens, cleaned it, popped it back in… nope, didnâ€™t do the trick. By the time I left the office, I was starting to get concerned that I had done some real damage somehow, but now that Iâ€™ve been lens-free for the last 20 minutes or so, itâ€™s starting to feel better. Whew!
Okay, let it be heard here first: I am going to sew, or at least start sewing, a dress this weekend. There, now Iâ€™m obligated to do it. Because I also have to make Key Lime Pie #5, attend a birthday party, and accompany my mother to her Artist Trading Cards meeting. I am planning on starting Butterick Retro â€™52 B4790 (as seen in this post) because I happened to pick out very dark fabrics for it when I bought the pattern, solid black and a black-and-red chrysanthemum print, and if I actually get it done I can throw a cardigan on and wear it now. So yeah, that’s the plan.
Also this weekend, I will potentially be making ten, count â€™em, TEN personalized ID tags for a SINGLE CUSTOMER, assuming she gets me her list of names by then. Shout out to Cindy for ordering tags for all of her friends! CPBR thanks you.
