I love having the doors and windows open and all the fresh air coming in. I've been sewing at the kitchen table because there's construction going on in the sewing room. (Thank you leaky roof!) It's been great sitting there with a breeze blowing through the screen door. It puts my love of sewing with my love of the outdoors and it's making me more creative. And I'm really enjoying the fact that the air conditioner is off and the electric meter is no longer spinning out of control!
This wonderful fall weather has my creative juices flowing and I need to get a lot of sewing done. To start with, I have to make a fall/winter wardrobe. I've been blessed to loose the weight I put on while I was taking Lyrica and almost 50 pounds later, I'm still loosing. Unfortunately, I have almost no clothes that fit and the few that I do have show how well "loved" they are. I don't want anything super fancy but I do need something to leave the house in. This year I'm going somewhere I've never been before with my sewing and make outerwear. I'm starting with a simple fleece poncho but I've never sewn fleece before. My work with fleece is limited to those no sew blankets. I'm torn on whether I want a hood or not. And if I don't want the hood, do I leave it plain or add something like the fake fur trim? Do I trim it even with a hood? Here's my options. What do y'all think?
|McCall's 3448 with hood|
|McCall's 3448 without hood|
|McCall's 3448 with fake fur trim|
I'm off to bed but I'll be back! :-)
