Yeah, I'm grumpy. I didn't do any sewing this weekend, even though I intended to. It's not like I didn't RUSH to buy patterns. It's not like I don't have a graduation to attend in less than two weeks.
So, what's the problem? Hormones. And a book. The hormones will work themselves out in a day or two. As to the book — DS brought home My Sister's Keeper on Friday, a book he read for school and about which we'd had a few conversations during his read. The book had to be back today as the school is gearing down the year and collecting its property. No book, no graduation. And 450+ pages in less than 24 hours = no sewing, hence the grumpy.
Interesting book. Strange, and I think disappointing, ending. I've got the movie now queued up for the DVR to record mid-week. We'll probably watch it together and compare with the book. I'm prepared to be disappointed since I always am with books to movies.
The other thing I'm grumpy about is that the fabric I thought I was using for the dress? Well, I don't have enough. So I've got to find something else.
I will work on it during the week, at least to get a muslin together. I might aim for a "wearable" muslin as a nightgown if I can decide on a fabric for that. Otherwise, just an icky knit to quickly check the fit.
