Did I say something the other day about Sewing Olympics? Hahahahaha! Instead of being inspired to sew, the swimmers have motivated me to do almost nothing more than lay poolside reading.
I accomplished nothing in the sewing room yesterday. Instead, I donned my swimsuit and went outside around 8:30 AM, gave the dogs a bath, brushed the pool, cleaned off some Rubbermaid bins that had been waiting outside for me to do so since I moved, poured myself an iced Diet Dr. Pepper, grabbed my Kindle, and lounged next to the pool until about 2 PM. When I got too hot, I jumped in the pool and swam for a bit, and then got back out and continued reading. Bliss. And slightly pink shoulders. ;-)
This morning, I went into the sewing room and finished the New Look dress (pics coming later - it's about to rain at the moment) and then dug out this nearly finished Vogue 8724 dress I started over a year ago and finished it off too. All it needed was the sideseams serged (smaller now - yay!) and a hem. Then I spent more time poolside. It's addicting, now that the pool water is FINALLY near 90 (what my wussy Florida self prefers) and I may end up with some real tan on my legs this summer after all.
Now I'm off to do some errands in my on-trend, if not eye-searingly bright, maxi dress and I'm hoping to get back into the sewing room upon my return to at least plan what's next and maybe get something cut out.
