|Pattern - Rennaissance from Blue Underground Studio|
Speaking of focus, I have once again lost it on the drapes. You can tell I really prefer making anything else. I would like to continue with this quilt or start on some shower gifts. (Yikes, and shouldn't I be making some Christmas presents?) I have to take a deep breath and get back to the drapes, cutting the lining fabric will be the next step. I know I will like them once I get them done. Making drapes just doesn't feel like being part of a community of sewers, it's just sewing for the house.
Emily wore the scarf I made for her this past Friday and it inspired me to finish mine. Here it is! I really like it, I have made 7 scarves now and 3 have been for me! Hey, I need to keep warm in these Chicago winters. The scarves are good for my body, the knitting is good for my creative spirit and the knitting group is good for my soul.
All my groups and clubs are communities of women whose sharing, love and caring make me happy and keep me sane. Maybe I need a drape making community?
Fine, I will just make the darn things.
Tomorrow...or the next day...
