Finding the time to sew is always a challenge, when I’m working 50-ish hours a week then coming home to make dinner, etc.  I don’t have as much energy as I used to and sitting on the couch watching TV take so much less motivation than sewing!

I’ve finished dozens of tucks, though, and last night got 10 darts, 2 princess seams and a pleat down the jacket back finished.  Now, on to attaching a neck band (not looking forward to that…looks complicated) and sleeves…and waistband for the skirt.   I need to have everything but the hems done by end of the weekend!

P.S.  I also took a break from sewing (!) and made some crystal earrings with a silver wrap and a crystal pendant with a small silver wrap to match…I’ll try to photograph them and add here later…
