ok, I'm waist deep in the implementation and stitching of my Sewing With A Planwardrobe. I'm mostly really happy with it.
But, really, let's be totally candid here - the most Fun part, the planning and working it out part - is Done!
so, what do I think about while working on the garments that I'm working on? For awhile I manage to think only about what I'm doing. This is good. This is what I consciously strive for - you know, the live in the moment thing and all like that.
But the rest of the time? I'm on to dreaming the next great thing.
So what am I dreaming about these days?
The maternity formal (wedding) dress (don't ask) that needs to be finished for April 10?
The prom dress that has a deadline of May 1?
I'm thinking about warping the loom.
I made the mistake of visiting a LYS on the way home from Rollerblading for an hour over at Creve Couer trails today - (it was 80 degrees - windy as all get-out, and I am working on whittling down these thighs). Anyway, I digress. The LYS has their novelty ladder yarn ON SALE! Big surprise - you know, those things you couldn't knit with - hated every minute of...lalalala...
But, they are an integral part of a piece of fabric that goes into a Chanel jacket. Those lovely multi-fibre boucles that we spend the beaucoup bucks for.
We all know that I wove 11 yards on my loom for Chanel-style jackets for a gift for my mom and my friend Sharron. Their jackets are both "under construction"... hint mom and friend - Sharron, I'll even rip the bleepin' sleeve for you....
Again, I digress.
I'm thinking about weaving a piece for Me, moi. What do you think?
I've got the yardage figured for the amount of ladder yarn I need. But, I'll need to find a lace weight boucle - any ideas?
so, what do you think about while you're working on your current project? Are you able to "live in the moment"? or, like me, are you dreaming about the next hill?
