A No Reason Dress.

Standard

A little less a month ago I had an entire weekend where I didn’t have a single thing to do, anywhere to be, or anyone to see. It was so refreshing to have a little breather! I mostly sat on the sofa and was a lazy, lazy girl. I did muster up enough energy to sew a dress with the remaining fabric from this dress. I don’t even have an event to wear this dress to, yet…

I strayed away, once again, from the pattern.  I just don’t like what they have to offer me.

Trouble with a capital T.

Standard

I get myself into trouble. Every day I have an hour for lunch. If I don’t actually leave the building I’ll get roped into a project and never leave. Ideally I should pack a lunch since my dining options are very limited to McDonalds and Culvers. A snack pack hamburger with only ketchup or chicken nuggets is not only unhealthy for me it’s starting to get old. But that’s beside the point, while I’m out, I like to look at the possible treasures at St. Vincent de Paul or head to the only other option for shopping, the quilt/fabric store. This is how I get myself into trouble, I see a fabric I like, and I need to have that fabric, even more so if it’s Amy Butler fabric. I suppose they will look nice folded up in my craft closet… Maybe I’ll actually make a quilt now that I’ve frequented the quilting store, could I be brainwashed? I never thought of myself as a quilter.
