Here In My Cave.

It's all good.

Now that my fishtanks are all set up to my liking (for now), and the wicking bed project is as done as it can be (for now) (and also out of my hands, for now), my current thing is sewing.

Some weeks back (it's taken a while to get onto this) I got help pulling my sewing table out into the living room, along with my box full of projects.

Yesterday I pulled out a pair of loose drawstring pants that I started probably ten years ago. Without a pattern, just made by laying over the other pants like this that I really like. When I pulled them out of the box last night, I realised that somehow they were almost finished.

Magic. So I finished them and now I'm wearing them.

In the interim decade, the favourite pants have become almost unwearable. So I'm now pulling them into their component parts to use as a pattern for another pair, this time in purple.

~~~

I also have some hems to do, and some adjustments to a nice frock.

If I'm not heartily sick of sewing by then, I'm going to make some new pillow slips out of a sheet that is perfectly good, but never used.

~~~

So I think this is my thing for the next...month, maybe?

Being organised like that always astounds me...when I or anyone else is, I mean. I'm not sure why it surprises me...but I do love the feeling when I can pull it all together like that.

It is always good to recycle and use old stuff and make new things out of them.
