I finally finished my last report card this evening. Now I will have conferences for the rest of this week. Today was spent doing a lot of driving - I had to pick up my dad and bring him back down here for appts. and then back up "the hill." Tomorrow I have conferences until about 7:00, Wednesday is my brother's birthday dinner, Thursday after school, more appointments for Dad, and Friday is bible study. I hope I get to sew next weekend.
I did go to Hancock's in Fresno and bought some blue stretch suede to make this cute dress. I also bought a pretty red stretch velvet to make the same dress for Christmas time. I think it will be just festive enough without being too "fancy."
I am also making some progress on my knitting, but am finding that knitting may be what has been causing the pain in my shoulder.
In November's issue of Lucky Magazine, they ran this spread. This really inspired me.
I decided to really look at the pieces and see which ones I could substitute with things I already have or are in my SWAP. I also looked at other fabrics I have in my stash and patterns that would give a similar look.
So, this is what I played with after I finished my report cards earlier. I don't know that I will ever pull all of this together. but it has given me some new ideas on combos from my swap and things I already have (or am planning on making!)
