The other night I went "stash diving" for some fabric to make Elisabeth a skort. The beige-ish/green-ish fabric came from the clearance rack at H*bby L*bby and the blue/white gingham came from a quilt store last year. Both fabrics are quilting cottons. I think they coordinate pretty well together.....others in this house disagree. Fortunately Elisabeth likes them!!!
You all will laugh when I tell you that I started sewing this around midnight. I should have been sleeping....but the prospect of sewing a little won out. Sometimes that is the only time I get to sew. Some people are surprised....but often I will sit down and sew only one seam. If I literally have 1 minute available while I'm waiting for the oven timer....and everyone is taken care of....I will sit down and sew for that 1 minute. If I waited for the perfect chunk of time to present itself.....I'd never sew again until the kids were all grown....and I'd be awfully grumpy! Sewing is my therapy!!!!
