So on Friday I mentioned that I had a four day weekend (I work 9 hour days and get every other Friday off), and I made an ambitious plan of Four Projects in Four Days. I hadn't had an orgy of sewing in quite a while (I'm thinking all the way back in October???) and I was in the mood for a good solid stretch of tracing, cutting, sewing, and closet replenishing.
I didn't catch up on the sleep I desperately needed, but I finished my four projects, plus a "wearable" muslin (the garment is fully finished but the fabric is so grody) *and* a bonus accessory. Whew!
The photo above gives teaser details of what kept me busy. You may recognize some of the fabrics from my lists of planned projects, but some just demanded to be made even without being put in a formal project queue.
I did not, alas, engage in an orgy of photography, but I did get my friend to take a picture of me in what I wore to happy hour on Friday. More on that tomorrow.
