I’ve been in a funk lately. I can feel it creeping up on me like an illness. I’ve been trying to stay busy and ignore it, but I can’t help feeling hopeless. Bah. Everything is fine really, I just can’t shake the funky feeling.
This is my fabric square for Mandy’s blog quilt. It’s in the mail already. Huzzah!
I’m no professional embroiderer, I just fake it. Also this was made at like 4am. 🙂
So I shop at Goodwill all the time. It’s my favorite place. The one next to my house has daily color-coded 50% sales and 10% student discount. The other one I visit in Sarasota (where my father lives) has 50%-off day on Saturdays all the time. Last time they did it, my boyfriend went with me and he picked out this interesting vest. It was little big, but I snagged it up because I knew I could fix it up…
I took in the sides and replaced the buttons. I also sewed it closed from the 4th button all the way down because the button holes didn’t go far enough down for dress action. I plan to take it with me next time I visit my mom because she’s way better with this sewing stuff and I think I need some darts in it for my boobs. See how the sleeves kinds bulk out where my chest is? I have no idea how to fix it, but my mom might be able to work her magic. 🙂
I have other stuff I could be doing, but honestly I’m just in video-game mode. This too shall pass.
