I'm intimidated by the forum change, so this challenge is all about just coming here every day, trying to follow threads, and posting in my own thread.

I have conditions that affect my social awareness.  If I am rude, tell me what I could do better.

Let's see... today I found a source for quilt panels and bought two.  I finished a cross-stitch project that I hated because of the fabric I was using.  I spent too much at the grocery store and then had hubby order a pizza.  If I'm lucky, I'll get the kitchen somewhat clean before bed.

Let's see, today I rifled through some old clothing that I was planning to recycle, got a bulky couch cover and a bad coat queued to go to the Salvation Army.  Then I went through my patterns and fabric to choose something to make for a wedding I'm attending in a few months.  I still need to buy the accent fabric, but I have the main stuff available.  I had hubby load the dishwasher once because I was sick of cleaning the kitchen, I emptied and filled the dishwasher again afterwards and the kitchen is clean.

 

Tomorrow's to-do list... maybe oil and clean my machine because I've never used this one yet.  Maybe make cookies or use my new angelfood pan to justify buying it.  Maybe I should learn to embroider so I can spiffy up my dress after making it.

I washed the fabric I'm going to make at least the skirt out of, the top will be brown if I don't have enough for that part.

 

I fluffed the fridge and went on a cooking strike because of too many leftovers.

 

I oiled my sewing machine, but didn't plug it in to play with it... it came with the name "Betsy."

 

I'm going to plan a trip to Joannes because I shouldn't have to pay that much for the tea-dyed muslin I found at Walmart.

 

I futzed around and did nothing for most of the day.

I futzed around most of the day, washed laundry and maybe I'll mess with sorting it.  I did stare at a sewing project.  I want to do view D but I can't figure out how to make it fit right, so I'm going to try view C.  Simplicity 2852 for an image search.  The bodice on view D fits, but the yolk I need to scale into a different size and make it fit together.  View C, I can hopefully use the gathers to make it work.

Yesterday, I bought new fabric.  I didn't find two that went together well, so it's either all going to be the print, or part of the shirt will be white.

I don't know what I did yesterday... cut out a project and didn't get it sewn together.

 

Today, I ran errands and I'm worn out.

Today, I bought a $5 diorama puzzle made of foam core and put it together.  I poked at housework.  I worked a little on a cross-stitch.  Earlier this week, I gathered my sewing supplies into a smaller mess.

I keep forgetting to check in.  Sewing is stalled.

 

Today I got really frustrated even though I got some sweeping done.  I want to replace the table in my living room.  I spent too much at thrift stores on junk.

I understand that completely I do the same thing. I love picking up stuff and refinishing them though, makes for a great project! 

 

Why is sewing stalled? I bet you'll look great at that wedding :)

I just got frustrated and overwhelmed by the mess in my sewing area and how much energy it was taking. 

 

I got a quilt kit sandwiched, which should be a good "sit down mindless" type of task.

I keep forgetting to check in.  The failed skirt was fine once I remembered it had six panels instead of four.  I bought mini perler beads and should have gotten sorted beads. :P
