Sorry my sewing entries have slowed down again — there hasn’t been much going on project-wise. My stays are close to being finished, but I admit I’ve not been focused enough to work on them. I’d been very annoyed with myself for not pushing myself harder on some projects, but I realized I need to cut myself some slack. I’ve had other things on my mind.
A month into his new job, my husband Christopher was unfortunately laid off again. I’d been hoping to make a big push to buy the accessories and fabrics I needed, and sew like crazy to finish our costumes for the first event in November. Understandably, there’s been a change of plans, and I doubt I will be able to finish our costumes or attend any events for a while.
I’m sure I’ll especially be sad when I see photos of the upcoming 18th Century Picnic (missing last year’s picnic is what made me realize I needed to try my best to get back to sewing). There will be other events though, and hopefully soon, there will be another job for my husband so we both can get back on track.
