If you came here expecting my version of the Sports Illustrated Cover (is there any fabric in that bathing suit?) or Fifty Shades of My Fifty-something body….don’t worry, I will spare you the agony!
No, the agony I am sharing with you is a classic case of “the cobbler’s children have no shoes.”
A few of the projects in my house waiting for someone who sews (what DO I call myself, by the way: seamstress, sewist, sewer, tailor?)
My excuse? I plead the workaholic excuse. I am always sewing to meet a deadline for my customers and I never take time to sew for myself!
My Archer Shirt waiting to be sewn together.
The pants from the Craftsy Pants class I am taking….and the new dress I’m going to sew for one of the two weddings I have this summer!
The sad sofa seat cushion (and even sadder sofa!)
The throw pillow on my bed which is waiting for a new cover.
The fabric for my new dust ruffle, white, and duvet, which was going to be rich stripes in spice and natural.
Wondering if I should even bother with the duvet since I have been enjoying the white comforter!
The buttons that need to be sewn onto this coat.
The lining on my husband’s coat (it was a hand-me-down, but still)
There you go. I hang my head in shame.
Don’t feel too bad – that’s pretty typical. The only person I know who DOESN’T do that is my husband. He’s a remodeling contractor by day but he keeps our house in perfect condition by night and weekend. That is NOT normal. You are normal!!! And thanks for letting us see.
Jane – I appreciate that you put the ARCHER shirt first on the list – since you dragged me into that project, and mine is in the EXACT same status as yours! What were we thinking? At least yours is in a project bag on a hanger – mine is in a PILE. We need to take a day, meet somewhere in the middle of here and there, and FINISH them. Someday…..
