I just made a pair of shorts from a very old pattern, I think i have had it for about 13 years now. I should have 5-6 things done but I have found myself doing all kinds of other needed things.....I cleaned my sewing room. I separated and filed my patterns away. I bought new cutting table. I registered the car...done my taxes....everything but get my butt in gear and sewed. Hopefully this will kick start my progress for the remainder of the contest. The shorts are just a muslin for the pants I want to make. Now I need to adjust the pattern to correct the fit. Wish me luck!

I had to chuckle when I read this. I sew almost every day, but seems in the last few days I've not had the drive. I got up this morning, went in to the sewing room, took down all the curtains, and matching chair cover. They are now in the wash. I'm not a "Spring cleaning" person, but it just seems like the sewing room needed a bit of refreshing. Now off to do some vacuuming...maybe after the curtains come out of the dryer and get re-hung, I'll get a bit of the sewing mojo back

Mmm, I hear you. I started deep cleaning my bedroom/sewing room, and have been sewing all kinds of things that are not eligible for the pattern stash contest. XD I've made three baby blankets, a set of curtains, and started a ball gown. I almost sewed two or three new patterns as well, even though my fabric finally came in the mail for my stashed patterns!!!

Please excuse my typos...sometimes it is harder to go back and edit on mobile than it is worth!
