To Do Tuesday – November 13

Welcome to To Do Tuesday – November 13

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 To-Do list from November 6:

1.  Winter Wardrobe Project
2.  P4P Pattern Re-Vamp Test
3.  Robe a la Francaise Research

After the crazy schedule of summer and early fall, the last couple weeks have felt like we’re moving at turtle speed.  It is definitely not a bad thing; however, I feel like I manage my time better when I have a full plate. 

1.  Winter Wardrobe Project

Piece by piece, I have been able to update my wardrobe, and I feel like I’ll be toasty warm this winter!  This week I made a couple of Patterns for Pirates Favorite Tees out of a super soft waffle knit from Mily Mae Fabrics, including the one in this picture.

2.  P4P Pattern Re-Vamp Test

This pattern is releasing on Friday, so I will finally be able to share it next week!!!

3.  Robe a la Francaise Research

All my fabric has arrived, and so have the supplies, including my new dress form, Francis.  I have a couple posts going up detailing the supplies and fabrics in the next couple weeks.  In addition, I have done some further research into the dress’ history, which has turned into a rabbit hole of tangents.  Another of my favorite inspiration pictures:

I have worked hard to clear up my schedule and for a good reason.  Next week, I have to have a disk removed and two neck vertebrae fused.  I am not sure what recovery is going to feel like, or how long it will take, and I didn’t want to have to back out of any commitments.  I am looking forward to the relief (and hopefully quick healing).

This week’s to-do list:

1.  Robe a la Francaise Research

What are you working on this week?

  1. Oh, that dress is gorgeous!! I wish you a speedy recovery and quick relief from your pain!

    1. Thank you so much! I am dying because all the fabric and supplies for the dress have arrived, and I don’t want to start it until I can concentrate on it.
