Not getting the job done!

I have not posted for a while as I am having the worst time of my life.......those bl##dy couches!!!!!!!! I cannot think of anything worse - in fact it may put me off sewing for life!!!
When I am not fighting with the impenetrable fabric I am procrastinating. So lots of Internet surfing and lots of emotional eating..

So the other day I bought these.....





And thanks to a thread over at Patternreview, I found this blog "whatiwore2day". Kasmira has photographed what she is wearing on an almost daily basis for quite a few months. And yes I have gone from the beginning of the blog and checked out everything she has worn! (I have become an expert in avoiding the unavoidable couches!). She certainly has style (and is very brave in some of her choices). Have a look, it is good fun!

Your patterns are great, Vicki. I splurged on a few as well lately and should post about it too! :)

Good luck with those couches. And that's a fun blog you directed us to!

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I saw all the traffic coming from the Pattern Review forum and checked it out. What a great group of people! I'm now a member too.

Good luck on the couches! I know they must be a really daunting project (ever wonder I why I never recovered mine?!?). Just take it a step at a time.

Are you recovering or slipcovering a couch? If you are I feel your pain. I traded with a friend...she helped me organize my sewing room, and I helped her make a slipcover. How hard could it be, i thought? Couches don't move or bend or complain about being stuck with pins. Was I ever wrong! What a nightmare project! We did finally get it done but I was humbled.

I really like that bolero pattern Vicki, I might have to pick that one up myself.
