So, I didn’t check in on Monday because I didn’t do a patch pocket project this past week. And I don’t even feel bad about it. Here’s why: they’re easy, I don’t feel I need a lot of practice on them, and I’ve recently completed projects that used them. For example these cute little Play Waders from February: see? patch pocket! actually, there were two even. Totally counts, I say. done and done. And while on the subject of mixing things up, anyone notice that I’ve pretty much abandoned Serger Saturday? No? Yeah, well I have. Kinda. I still have stuff I want to try out on my serger and learn. But the fact is, I was spending a whole lot of time sewing and playing around with that stuff and not so much taking care of my more important responsibilities, like playing with my kids and getting laundry put away. So I’m cutting back a little. And I can because it’s my challenge and I can make the rules up as I go along. But I did get to four more pocket styles today (only three left to go!). So those are coming. And I’ve decided to just do one project for the whole of the pocket chapter. That way I can focus on some other projects and things I have going on. So I’ll get those lessons up in a few minutes (or hours, whatever) and I also have a sweet little ditty to show you using some awesome beads from SB Supply on Etsy. You won’t want to miss that. It screams summer and sun and everything that is not the snow dumping right now outside my window! So fight Seasonal Affectedness Disorder through crafting and check in tomorrow for the crazy easy tutorial. And now, onto pockets. more. pockets. Kind of like: more. snow.
