I wound up spending Friday night sewing an apron together from a really bad printed fabric I bought at Walmart a good 5 years ago. It was one where all pattern pieces were printed directly onto the fabric. The lines were incredibly off on it so I fixed it where I could. I also tested my wide hemmer foot on it. I won't pretend it didn't come out like a beginner project but it was my first time with the hemmer foot. It will still take some getting used to, especially on curves.
Part of taking a break from costuming and getting my life more in order has started with starting a semi in depth cleaning schedule for my apartment that is worked around remaining shows and leaves my Tuesday movie nights free.
So each afternoon last week I knocked a small thing off at a starting point. I think between this and getting smaller projects done it's actually making me feel a lot better in general.
For the first time in months I woke up with energy and I didn't want to hide in bed. I tackled cleaning the fridge, microwave, and the glass on my car this weekend. Though cleaning the car glass was tricky as it cooked the second I put the cleaner on.
I spent a good portion of Saturday working on Jem getting her appliqué and color blocking together. Color blocking on curves sucks.
Sunday I also woke up with a decent amount of energy except I did want to veg out but I also wanted to do things.
I wound up putting the Jem dress together.
I felt so good this weekend and energized I actually forgot to take my B12 shot! B12 helps fight fatigue!
As of today I finished a book and did some deep cleaning to my stove, oven, and sink.
I haven't been dirty. Let's clarify. My version of cleaning is hardcore but it's feeling really good to get these things done. I am looking forward to off time and possibly getting back into photography (nature).
I might have even found the perfect boots for Jubilee today.... Oh man...
