Just a quick post. I have been under the weather with a terrible virus that includes coughing and coughing and coughing. So much so that I also lost my voice. Not being able to talk for me is like having your mouth wired shut and can only drink liquids. My mother said I was born talking!
I have almost completed my sweater duster. I needed to reduce the width of the shoulders so that the sleeve and shoulder would hang better on me. I also need to take deeper side seams after basting at 5/8 and trying on for fit.
As mentioned previously I am on a pattern/fabric diet; though I did fall off the fabric diet 3 days into the new year. But I am back on it again.
I found it was easy to resist recent pattern sales at JoAnn's and on Club BMV, though I did renew my Club subscription. So far I have clicked delete before opening emails from Club BMV, indie pattern newsletters and just glanced right over the ads in the JoAnn's flyer/bulletin about pattern sales.
I have not broken out in a cold sweat from doing this either and have resisted going to the trash file and opening those emails! I think I will make it to the summer.
I still want to post my end of year fabric purchases, plus my January purchase. Post soon.
