Say it again.
May. Busy. So very busy.
Last week we attended two-- no wait, three-- no wait, two birthday parties. No wait, it was four. Plus a block party. And the Evil Monkeys had three, no four, school field trips between them.
Plus the cat has irrevocable fleas from, apparently, the massive invasive flea colony living under our house (and therefore apparently not the fault of our neighbor kid). So that's only cost us $300 and hundreds of hours deal with so far.
Plus there are the ten other birthday/soccer/end-of-school/let’s- celebrate-something-totally-mundane-and-ordinary parties we've attended or will attend this month. Plus TLo's 'graduation' from Kindergarten. Plus, swimming season has begun. We must now swim with the Evil Monkeys at least four times a week. Or their heads will explode. Or something.
I hate May. I have not sewn anything for at least a week and a half.
I hate May.
In a completely unrelated story:
I have at least three pieces of voile in my stash. Purchased because I loved the pattern or the color. But what the heck do you make with voile? It's sort of... oddly crisp. Weirdly drapey. Ever so slightly... scratchy.
So today I got the link to Fabric.com's monthly free pattern download from HotPatterns. Here it is:
It's a cover-up. But I'm thinking I might just try it out as a top. Which means I have to make a camisole to go under it.
So that's: 1) fit and make a top from voile, 2) fit and make at least one camisole from knit, 3) use my superpowers to find six extra hours in every day that no one knew about before.
It could happen. Although since my superpower is, apparently, an astonishing ability to whine and an ability to project abject panic in the face of insect infestation, I'm not totally sure yet how that's going to work. The details are a little... hazy.
