I'm on a little staycation this week (gotta love two long weekends in a row - who wouldn't want to take those intervening days off work).  I'm determined to make good use of my at-home time and, while I have lots of reading to do and long walks with Lily and some vegetable planting if winter ever departs, I also have a sewing commitment.

My challenge to myself is that every day, from Monday to Friday, I will sew a complete article of clothing.  Shall I say that again?  Yes, sewing every day, and actually ending up with five new pieces to wear. I'm pretty sure I can do it, and then maybe I'll stop whinging to myself every morning about my paucity of things to wear.

So...the list, in no particular order:
  1. navy linen pants (already cut out and ready to go)
  2. brown lined skirt (also ready to go - except for the lining)
  3. yellow summer top (good to go, too)
  4. I think I have to do Sorbetto - what do you think? - seems everyone else has, and I can be a bit of a follower at times
  5. don't know about number 5 yet as I'm waiting for inspiration to spring during the week
Stay tuned.  I'll report in daily.

Oh, and by the way, I received a lovely comment via Ravelry on my Urban Shells scarf from the designer herself, Katherine Crombie, and she is featuring my photo on her pattern page on Rav.  That's nice.

How fantastic! And very achievable on your staycation. And yes! You should make a Sorbetto! Would suit you so well!
