Hello from the land of over-committment!
My crazy sewing adventures have been light on the ground this week with the insanity of work and the intentsity of pre-bout derby training taking over. There have been many grand plans but in the end muscle fatigue trumped good intentions. Actually, if I think about this carefully the only thing that may trump my current muscle fatigue is free cake. Mmm, free cake. But I digress, check out my mad planning and measuring skills. It’s freaky to hear me use the word planning, I know…
Now let’s talk win- I have totally drafted a tights pattern using my own measurements and the trial leg I have just sewn is not only disco crocodile print rad but also fits perfectly. Amanda sewing win!
Now let’s talk fail- I accidentally cut out two left legs instead of one of each. Never fear, I have more eye meltingly rad lycra to cut out some right legs. And a valuable lesson was learnt- do not cut out patterns late at night after three hours of skate training. Crazy, I know! This was an Amanda sewing fail.
And finally, let’s talk cocktails. I have discovered the loveliest summer inspired cocktail on Pinterest that is called Magic Juice. Gin + ye olde fashioned lemonade + fruit = deliciousness of wonder. This makes me think of warm days, reading books in the sun and cute 50s sundresses (I’m suppressing the Cambie travesty here). If you are a lady or gent who likes a wee dram of summer cocktail I seriously recommend getting on this wagon to flavourtown!
My goal for this week is to finish the tights of crazy and plan out what my next project is going to be. I’m in need of some inspiration, so I ask- what are you currently working on?
