I didn't get any actual sewing done yesterday because we had a planned power outage but I did go to Joann's to peruse the fabrics. I walked away empty handed. Actually I got 2 things but for some reason I can't remember what it was. I had two coupons and used them both so it was probably needles or something. That is how thrilled I am with that excursion.
Friday is a great for sewing. I can see why the Friday Night Sew-Along exists. Sometimes I feel lame telling people I was home sewing on Friday night. I am doing something relaxing though and I owe myself some relaxation to unwind from a hectic week. For the past 3 Fridays I have been sewing but am not ready to commit publicly that I will surely be sewing AND make decent progress. Tonight I went to the local high school football game with the family. (Great game, we were down 0-21 in the 3rd but came back to win it..woot, woot). I did get the fabric washed and dried so tommorow I can work on it.
Anyhow I am in somewhat of a fabric and pattern jam because I don't have any fabric for the patterns I really, really want to sew. I happened to have some knit so I thought I would try making a comfy long sleeved shirt. From the patterns I have on hand the McCalls 5819 fits the bill. I'll be making View C which is the long sleeved shirt. No designs, no multiple colors. Solid and basic is the direction I am going.
I can see this being a nice lounge around at home or lazy weekend errand running shirt. I also have another idea but I just need to get through making it first to see if I want to move forward with that.
