Click Delete

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.

    1. Thanks Coco! When I lived in Florida, I hardly ever got sick. I am thinking of retiring back there. I think it is all the sunshine and warmth! :-)
