So what do you do when your hard drive crashes?
Sew. Of course!
I sewed three pairs of jeans. I had planned on participating in the Pattern Review Jean Contest, but now I have lost the enthusiasm for it. My jeans are really just pants: no rivets, no metallic fastener in the front – Sorry! forgot the proper name of that – and no metal zipper in the fly nor even a fly front, just a regular ole’ nylon zipper from JoAnn’s. But they are made from denim so I am calling them jeans. I really don’t feel like sewing up another pair for the contest even though I have two more pieces of denim yardage lurking in my fabric closet.
Besides jeans, I have also sewn five pairs of Yoga Pants.
Here are only three of them, the other ones are in the laundry basket. Why five pairs? Well, the Neighborhood Group that I host for the ASG is doin’ Yoga Pants so I have made them up in several different styles and besides, these pants are super comfortable and super easy to fit and sew – Yes! I sew them on my sewing machine . . . no serger required.
I haven’t reviewed either of these projects on Pattern Review – as of yet. I keep thinking I should and then I always find something else I would rather do – like sew.
I did go snow skiing (last month) in Mammoth although I don’t have any pictures to share (they were lost with the hard drive crash) but we did stop at Schat’s Bakery in Bishop and I loaded up on bread and cookies. Yummy!
