|~ I am bereft from the lack of sewing ~|
The same injury is grossly limiting my computer time as well. Yikes almighty.
|~ oh, but look at the pretty flowers ~|
During this enforced time off, I have lowered my sewing machine 3.5" by cutting a hole in the computer desk and letting it sit on the keyboard sliding tray. Perfect. I also raised the cutting table 8" by setting the legs on empty coffee cans. Perfect. Raised the office chair some more. Put a box under the desk to raise my feet. Still not great, but better.
|~ my 3 hour dress that took 3 weeks ~|
Made from a Tina Givens Iris dress pattern. I luv the design and it's only 2 pattern pieces: the dress and the collar. (Well, 3 counting the pockets). Very simple. Nevertheless, the instructions are off regarding the collar. So just go your own way there.
|~ the collar/ cowl can be worn all sorts of way - even as a hood! ~|
I also spent quality time organizing my sox drawer(s). For real. sigh. And lots of sleeping because I just couldn't stand it. But then, these certainly helped...

I'm off to meet with the always lively Patti and the Visibles at Not Dead Yet Style. And then Catherine's I Will Wear What I Like and Cherie's Shoe and Tell when they go live. Come on by.
