Welcome to To Do Tuesday May 2!
Christine at Stitch ALL The Things hosts To Do Tuesday. TDT is a great weekly motivator to finish projects and (for me) to keep my To Do List manageable.
My list from April 25:
1. Sew Senior Class May Day Dresses
It is May! Let the frantic end-of-the-year/graduation activities begin! We had another busy week, though I was expecting it to be slower. Between golf and softball practices, physical therapy, and work, it doesn’t seem like we were home much at all. Saturday, Todd and I bought a new car for me, and I absolutely love it! It is a 2013 Volkswagon Passat, and it is amazing!
1. Senior Class May Day Dresses
DONE!!! I have been counting wrong this entire time, and there were actually ten dresses to make, not nine. I think I kept forgetting to count Harley.
The dresses are all finished, and the May Day Celebration is this coming Thursday. I cannot wait to get pictures of the girls in their dresses. One dress is completed except for the hem. I am making the dresses assembly-line style by pattern. The girls didn’t all select the same dress, so I made the Made for Mermaids Mama Quinn, Patterns for Pirates Timeless Tunic Dress and Sweetheart Dress, and Bella Sunshine Designs Maggie Dress.
I am really bummed because I forgot to take pictures of all the dresses together and finished before I delivered them to the girls last Thursday.
Now I have to regroup and decide what I am going to work on next. There will definitely be some selfish sewing coming on, along with a graduation gift for Harley. Sunday afternoon I did make time to sneak in this selfish sew. I am not normally a lace person, but this fabric and lace came together in a bundle and I forced myself to use them together. I am so glad I did! This is the new Favorite Tee from Patterns for Pirates. I made the hemmed shirt length, and it has this awesome split hem detail.
My To Do List is going to remain short until these dresses are finished!
1. Take pictures at May Day & Write a Wrap-Up Post
2. Harley’s Graduation Gift
3. Take stock of fabric stash and create a summer capsule wardrobe plan
