A Little Disappointed

I am at the end of a five-day weekend. I had great plans and high hopes of getting a lot of stuff done. But I will be back to work tomorrow and I failed to accomplish anything on my sewing/crafting list. I was, however, able to spend a great deal of time with my parents and take care of my mom.

I worked on the clutch style handbag in the current issue of Sew Stylish magazine (page 33). It has to be the simplest design I have ever seen, but I can't get the pieces to come together. After working on it for about four hours today, it's still not together. I must be experiencing some sort of mental block.

I have managed to complete a total of nine squares for my crocheted dress (or skirt, depending on how long I am able to stay focused). Yes, that's right, I have completed nine squares - only about a million more to go.

I intend to post some photos of my progress this weekend. This is assuming that there will actually be some progress by week's end. I can dream.

Oh wow! My first comment. Thank you for taking the time to view my blog. I hope to have my fall wardrobe plans completed this weekend. I should also be able to post pictures of my handbag (from Sew Stylish magazine) and a sketch of my crocheted dress or skirt. Thanks again.
