For a four-day week, this one sure has been a marathon. It seems like there was only time for work and sleep. It paid off last night when a record number of students enrolled in this semester's evening English classes. Between work and some dog issues, needless to say, there was no time for creative endeavors. E's away to a car show tomorrow and, as my mother-in-law said, "You know what that means: Sewing Day!" I hope she's right.
So it's nice to look back on some of the projects, like this patchwork scarf, I had time for during winter break. This scarf, inspired by the ones in Denyse Schmidt's book, went to Aubrie, close friend and college roommate, who recently moved to Chicago. I enjoyed making these for three Florida-to-cold-climate transplants. They're lined in grey fleece, which makes them super cozy.
This weekend, I hope to finish the corkboard to hang above my sewing table. Mine has pockets like the ones over at Shim + Sons. It seems that these pinboards are on everyone's to-do list.
