In A Funk

I'm way behind with updating this blog. There have been so many other interesting things to do lately, that sewing and blogging (especially blogging) have had to take a back seat. Even weeding sounds more fun at the moment, especially when it's sunny out there. 

It's been two weeks since the boys' summer break started. We've been pretty occupied so far. We spent a couple of days hanging out at our friend's house while my husband was away for work. Last week we went camping in Wisconsin. Yesterday we spent a couple of hours at the zoo in Chicago. There's a trip to Oklahoma coming up in August to visit the grandparents. 

I do hope to spend sometime sewing, though. The truth is I feel like I'm in a funk. Sewing and blogging funk. I'm just not feeling it, totally feeling very unmotivated. I did, however, force myself to finish this top I started a few weeks ago. There wasn't much to it, actually. I only needed to finish a few inches of blanket stitches around the hem, make a button hole, and sew a button. I could have finished the whole thing in a few days, but it ended up taking me three weeks! My next project is to make a skirt out of the 1 yard of fabric pictured below, so it can be worn with the white top. We'll see how long this one will take me to finish!

December sewing & happy holidays!

First post for December! Do you feel like time just flies by extremely fast these days? Here we are, a few more days until another new year. December has been quite productive for me in terms of sewing. Here's a sneak peek of the things I made. I'll probably be writing about them in detail after the new year. If  I feel motivated, it could be sooner. We're going to South Carolina tomorrow to spend the Christmas holidays with my husband's family. We're all excited about it. I love spending time with family. It's a rare opportunity for us since everybody lives so far apart from each other. My whole family is in Malaysia, and we only get to visit them once every few years. Happy Holidays!
