Do you find it tough to balance sewing time with exercise time?
I feel like I often have to choose one or the other. Last week I started a swim techniques class that meets a couple times a week. It’s great, but it cuts into my week-night sewing time. And over the weekend I spent a good chunk of time in the pool. So my current projects didn’t get as much attention as I’d hoped for. But I’m loving the swimming, so it’s not like I’m really complaining. 🙂 And I did make some decent progress on a few things.
I think I’ll use this fabric, but am not 100% sure yet.
So, I put the dress aside, to let the fabric decision stew in my brain for a while. Then I cut out another Hazel. I really like being able to turn to a pattern I’ve done before, it makes the project feel a lot faster since I can skip the muslin. This time I’m going to use a yellow embroidered cotton. (The sunlight was streaming in my window when I snapped this pic, so the fabric looks brighter yellow that it is in real life. It’s actually a pretty soft pastel.)
I also worked on my Audrey. I finally got to the lace bib, and I started feelin the love for this project again. Maybe it’s the lace. I have a thing for knitting lace.
