Summer patterns are here but....

Today, I went looking at the new summer patterns. I found very little of interest to me. I'm not saying that the patterns were bad but a lot seemed very young. There was one dress at Vogue that I liked:

This is a shirt dress with a pleated skirt (V1107). The only problem is it's above the knee. I wonder what it would look like lengthened. I don't need to show off the leg above the knee. I think I would prefer something at the knee. I'll have to think about it.

Isn't this sad? This is the only thing that I saw on any of the pattern websites. Oh, there was crafty stuff that was cute but there are other companies that do this type of pattern well.

The taxes are done! Yippee! It took two late nights and every time I thought I was finished, I found something else to do. I do still have local taxes but they are not due for a couple weeks. so there is lots of time to them.

My son have been whining about my office still being in the basement. I guess it is time to finish up the room renovation and move the office to the newly renovated room upstairs. It will be nice to have everything upstairs again. Although, I think that extra packing supplies will remain in the basement. I need to decide on the next project for the house. It's either going to be paint the house or renovate the basement. This is going to be a tough decision. Maybe I still getting estimates and maybe that will help with the decision. Oh, there is always too many things to do and not enough time to do them.

Ok, it's off to finish up some work. Then, maybe I can think about working on my skirt. I need some new clothes as I have lost a little bit of weight and everything is a bit too loose.

Happy Stitching!


  1. Yes, go sew for you. Clothes that make you feel beautiful are essential :-)

  2. Oh, thanks for the encouragement! I do like this particular pattern but I'm going to work on my skirt first and watch for sales on the patterns.
