The Burda jacket is coming along slowly. I was sidelined by putting my back out over the weekend while helping DH move our extremely heavy dining room table back into place. I am feeling better now but I can't seem to get my sewing mojo back. The jacket shell is together, but when I went to sew the lining, I realized that I had neglected to make a piece for the side back. Woops! No more lining fabric. I found a silk charmeuse in my stash in a kind of coral color that I bought from Fashion Fabrics Club and it wasn't exactly the color I thought it would be, but it works for the lining. While I washed and dried it I cut out the cotton knit Hot Patterns Weekender Sunshine top. The lining is now cut and ready to sew. But, am I sewing it? No, I am working on a pattern for a knit dress. I seem to spend more time working on patterns lately than sewing.
I can't seem to concentrate on finishing anything and then I read in Trina's blog that she sewed four projects in four days! Not simple tops, either, but some great dresses. I am so envious of her ability to just sew until it's done. I'd be happy with even a fraction of her output. Only when I have a real deadline do I manage to get things done that quickly. But not even then. Four projects in four days? I can't even finish a simple knit top in a day.
How to better manage my time is really the question. One thing is to stop wasting so much time on the computer! It is next to my sewing machines and it calls to me whenever I am having a hard time with a project. It is the great time waster in my life.
