For more mundane things, the diet is going along great and I have found some really great stuff to eat that satisfies and doesn't spend too much of my calorie budget. I've lost 11.5 pounds and am not suffering a bit, except at cocktail time. I can go back to imbibing when I've lost 25. However we will have house guests for a couple of days next week and I doubt I will be all that saintly.
After spending a few days in the fusing mindset, I put it all away and got out my new knit fabrics. It's been a while since I made anything with knits and for a few hours I had to convince my serger to behave. Made the first top and today I will cut it down to fit me better.
That first color doesn't photograph well, but it is a deep forest green. Everything was on sale and I had a coupon. Heard that one before? I couldn't resist that black with white crosses. I already have some of that and thought I might need more. ha!
I'll use this pattern for the knits. Fall tops. ++Update, turns out that this pattern is for two way stretch knits not what I have so nevermind, I didn't use it.
My sewing table is tucked in a corner, but the feng shui works perfectly for me there. While I think feng shui is sorta hooey, I still practice the idea of keeping my sight lines toward the door. And I have the help of the boys on the couch, when they are not snorting/snoring away.
