After a full weekend of all out rodent warfare, which included 12 bags of trash, 3 packs of steel wool, 4 cans of expanding foam insulation, a small batch of quick-dry concrete and a happy (and $20 richer) 15 year old neighbor, I retreated to the workroom on Sunday night to play with a little fabric and get my brain back in order. This was after, of course, I completely tore out and reorganized the workroom because if there's any place in my house that could double as a mouse nest, it's the fabric storage area. No mousies, however - there's a point to letting Lily into the sewing room with me, she's obviously left some scent behind that's scared them off.
I'm still working on some basic tshirts from KS 3338 with those cotton jerseys from Jomar - so far, I've made myself one in creamsicle orange, and another in what the original American Eagle sticker called "Retro Blue." Mario also got one in that color, since it was a big remnant.
Sunday night's project was one of my favorite quick-and-easy patterns. Does it go without saying that it was from KwikSew? I've made KS 2694 three times now, once in a sweater knit, once in a rayon lycra jersey last year and now in the zig-zag print stretch velvet from last weekend's trip to Jomar.
Complicated projects have their times and places, but sometimes, you just really need a project that you can knock out, cutting to hemming, in 90 minutes. This was one of those projects.
