Nothing resets me mentally like ignoring everything important and just sewing. Today I made a little dress for a pretty toddler I know. I turned an ill-fitting summer dress into a top and skirt, I refashioned two button up shirts into spring blouses, I made a wrap skirt that wouldn’t stay shut into a dirndl skirt and I made a new waistband for the skirt I made last week. Most exciting was the appliques on the toddler dress and pintucks!!! I made pintucks. I’m super excited, I put seven rows of them on the front of one of the blouses instead of darts. They are hard to see unless you are up close but I am very pleased with them as decorative details. I suspect there will be many pintucks in my future. There are pictures here (the last 11 pics are the new stuff).
Now I am utterly exhausted. Though not just from sewing. From everything. It’s storming again. I am too tired to say much other than food good. Bed better. Tonight hopefully I will sleep long and hard and not have hideous and disturbing dreams like I did last night.
