In Sewing News Today...

Have a table load of stars to finish sewing.


Instead, I drove Mama R to a hair appointment, scored a hair cut for myself while waiting, came home and passed out.

Yup, I felt this tired. {Source}
Sometimes you just have to recharge your battery despite how much sewing is on your table.

I'm feeling panicked that they must be finished in a week. Not lovin' this feeling.

It did motivate me to serge the edges of two more stars and then I gave up since I tend to make mistakes when I'm tired.

Still feeling panicked about getting them done. And I need to wear my ski pants tomorrow that has been in my mending pile to be shortened. I don't like to do mending and alterations.

It has not been a productive sewing day. Unless you count...

Over at Butterick where I was able to score kAtheRine Tilton's latest pattern which is on sale right now.

Gawd, I love happy endings.
