Feels like a long time ago I was sewing. It just isn't happening at the moment. My daughters top (which she was happily wearing last weekend) was just a small project of only a few hours all together.
Blog reading is the same: there are more than 200 new posts on my bloglist in google reader. Impossible to read them all and I feel overwhelmed. Perhaps I should click the "mark all as read" button and start again.
As more often I'm thinking of temporarily stopping with blogging, on the other hand, keeping track on my blog, gives me the feeling that I finish what I start, which has been different in the past. And it lets me think about my sewing and often start something which I otherwise would postpone or not do.
Like this top, I had only 1 meter of fabric and was searching for a summer top that could be made with only that length. Publishing my "to do" list made me actually search for the pattern, while otherwise it might well have been left for yet another year. Summers here are unpredictable and not very long. Till now I almost had no occasion to wear real summer clothes. In between seasons is far more useful.
This top (BWOF 06-2008-109) could be made out of just the meter of fabric when omitting the tie. It's cut, marked and interfaced where necessary. The next thing is to go sewing. Perhaps tomorrow.
