Made a list.
It was the accomplishment of the day.
As I am slowly losing my pregnancy pounds, I have been confounded about where I put my old jeans. Looking for a place to stash other things I found the old jeans and a bunch of summer stuff.
Dumped all of the stuff on the bed, laid the baby in the middle so he could mangle sleeves and topple piles, then tried on most of the clothes.
I don’t know why I keep the unflattering and/or faded. Well, I guess I do know why. Growing up on a farm, we always had “work clothes”, which meant faded, torn, stained and usually ugly. Except I live in the residential part of a city. My current gardening demands a few old remnants, but certainly not a closetful. Old habits die hard.
Making a list sounds a bit persnickety, but I have little time to sew and I must focus on real needs. The list clarified that I have a lot more great summer stuff than I imagined. And the gaps were also very clear. All of my casual knit tanks are very grubby.
Right now I am entertaining my creative impulses by scavenging my pattern boxes for easy knit tops. Working up just one or two designs may be the way to go.
When I find the right patterns I will have to come up with plan to sew . . .
