Why is it that every time I shop online, I find three things that I want to make instead of buying? I'm my mother's daughter, I suppose. Every time we saw something sweet but expensive at the mall she would tsk, tsk and say, "Do you know how easily I could make that?"
Of course, she was a busy, might as well be single working mom so she rarely had time to sit down and sew. But I'm jobless, mostly.
So instead of buying this, I'm plotting how to make my own.

Tsk, tsk, I could make this so easily.

And I apologize, dear readers, if you were expecting many great things from me over the next few months of my delightful unemployment. I've just been diagnosed as having survived a nasty virus (which didn't seem that bad, really) but which has left my lungs in a horrible state, and I have orders to take it super easy the next couple of months. So, still sewing, and still blogging, but at half steam.


  1. Wishing you a quick recovery. There will be no disappointment from me if you are not whipping up a garment a week - so take the time to get well.

  2. It's one of the curses by knowing how to sew... Tsk, tsk, I could make this so easily sounds ver so familiar...

    Hope you get well soon!

  3. Are you kidding?! Three things! Only three things you wish for! I find twenty at least. And wish for the time, money, resources and skills to make that pintucked linen dress, that tiered prairie skirt, that peasant blouse, etc, etc, etc.
