Sew Enthused

;\ I know. I don't appreciate the title either! But I'm starting to get all obsessive with project planning again, and it's making me lose my cool.

First of all, I don't do online shopping; I don't really do shopping at all to be honest. Being eternally broke helps me maintain this stance, so I'm not up-to-date on stuff (to be as vague as possible). BUT HOLY CRAP!! HAVE YOU SEEN THESE SHORTS?!



I am dead, ModCloth. DEAD.

I want to put useless, too small heart pockets on EVERYTHING! Look at how silly her hand looks trying to wedge itself in there. And I don't even care, I'm going to do it!

The only thing that can possibly add to my enthusiasm is when craft and sewing supplies go on sale. The Cynthia Rowley dress I really wanted to make for the swap? It was finally back in stock and on sale for 99¢ so of course I bought it, plus this little number:

V1236

I plan on wearing nothing but skirts and dresses now that the weather is finally warming up. Mostly. So, I need to get started on my stash. Though I love looking at all the new patterns available, I have so many I haven't even touched yet! Just look at these things:



I'd be lying if I were to pretend I didn't have more, but I'm not too fond of them so... moving on! Another project I've started working on (finally) is the lattice and swirl shirt from a back issue of Crocet Today! — the one I got for Christmas. It's really tough though. I feel justified in hating the pattern to pieces because it has mixed reviews on Ravelry and a fair share of women have given up, so I'll just come back to it later. Having several WIP is totally ok (says the chick with the longest self-imposed to-do list (just wait till you see my next post!)).

  1. THOSE SHORTS! AHHH!I am a big fan of decorative (very much non-functional) pockets on shorts. I just finished some today!

    re: your last paragraph- that sweater looks amazing, but where is your parka?! :)
