In Stitches Book

So here is an example from the book that I am getting called In Stitches.

I am going to set up a sewing area in the basement (bummer) and get some clear plastic fabric boxes. Oh joy!!! Joy!!!!

I love, love, love fabric. I love paper more, but I love fabric second.

I really need an apron. So I hope to make this one of my first projects. I love an apron. I like this 50s girly apron. No bib apron for me.

Below are some pants. Lounge pants. Husband doesn't like them. But I do. Worth a shot. Good for Sunday morning. Who am I kidding? Good for all the time. Mwhahaha. Me hates tight pants.

Ah, but I have to go shopping. Have to buy some nice fitting clothes. I am terrible with clothes. Terrible. Horrible. I hate shopping, although I just came back from five hours of shopping, which is an accomplishment with my latest neck/shoulder injury thingy. It's getting better (thanks for asking, K.)!

Lets just say patience is not my strong suit and being injured for six months straight, unable to do my regular things (like take walks and make sandwiches) has not been a happy time for me.

I hope to sew soon. But stay off the computer so much. Computer = evil. Computer = bad posture. Bad posture = bilateral repetitive strain injury, upper crossed syndrome and muscoskeletal dysfunction (not fun).

I wish I could sew soooo badly. One day I will. I'm going to sign up for classes. And I love, love, love fabric too. Love it. I used to be such a conservative girl. Everything had to be very plain. Only solids. I only wore black, khaki and white. I didn't even wear a veil at my wedding b/c it was too fussy. Only had white tulips.

But nope, no more. Now I like colors. And I want patterns and bright cheerly colors all over my house. And I wear sparkly flip flops. What the heck happened?

{cringing and sitting up straight at the computer after hearing about your injury}

At work I use to have risers under my terminal screen to accomodate my height - I had been getting intense headaches, everyday by 10 am - and then *poof* the risers were placed and the headache was gone!

Now I have 4 old textbooks under my terminal at home to raise the screen! It forces me to sit up straight

I use to sew a lot . . . I think that if I started again I would get into teddy bears or dolls - I know a woman that makes the most amazing doll characters and stuffed animals. Talk about fun fabrics!
