Finally, I'd had enough and decided to just start on the camis already! But starting didn't change anything. I still didn't like them. I felt like this was forced sewing, so before finishing them, I tossed them both out.
As soon as they were gone, the glorious skies parted, my stuck-in-the-mud mood lifted, the joyful angels sang, and my sewing started flowing smoothly again. TG!!!
I sewed another Butterick 4547 dress (this time in solid black), and 2 more Butterick 3344 long sleeved black knit tops, but no pics, yet.
Today, I'm sewing a Simplicity 5364 halter dress that has been in my sewing queue for ages. It's still in the queue because I didn't think I had the right fabric for it in my stash. I'm not certain, but I think I was wrong. I have fabric that's been in my stash for a while that I just put in the donate pile because I couldn't imagine it sewn into anything. After it was in the donate pile, I looked at it and saw this dress. I'm thinking that after its sewn it will look fantastic, but I have thought that before about other projects that I ended up tossing as soon as they were sewn. I'm hopeful, but if this ends up looking terrible, I'll just toss it.
Last night, I sat in the darkness and quiet of the backyard and had a clear view of the Blood Moon. I'd read that it would be visible on the horizon only, but there it was, high in the sky, in perfect view. To my surprise, I didn't like seeing the moon like that. It looked dirty, and it made me think that it belonged in a Mad Max world. I much prefer looking at the moon when it's bright and shining.
The Blood Moon was different, and because of that, I hope you got a chance to see it, too.
