Monday starts my spring break so no work for a week. It's great to have the time off, but I don't get paid for time off. I've been lazy about sewing lately. I think it's because I'm still losing weight and I don't want to sew a lot of things because I know they won't fit for very long. However, my plan today is to cut out a few new tops for spring using patterns I haven't sewn before. Sewing my TNTs, I was always guaranteed a great fitting garment, but now those patterns are all too big. I'm back to sewing blindly again and I'm not comfortable doing that so wish me luck!
I also wanted to share that on Tuesday I go in for my D&C to check for cancer cells. I've never had this procedure done before and after looking it up on the internet and seeing a video of one actually being performed (I know that was a stupid thing to watch) I'm so thrilled I'll be completely out for the procedure. I'm getting nervous about it. My husband will not be with me on Tuesday because he has to be with his mom who is having her cataract surgery the same day. She is divorced and Bob is her only child so he really needs to be with her. That means I have to find someone else to take me to the hospital and bring me home. I think I'll ask my Dad to be there for me. I'm sure he'll be happy to help.
After I'm feeling better, I hope there is still some of my week off left to get back to the sewing machine. I'm feeling the need for pretty spring clothes. I wore a dress to work yesterday and got nice compliments on it and I didn't even make it. Dresses will shrink with me better than pants will so that's what I want to sew along with some skirts and tops.
I'm also going to have to start lesson planning since I think that the city parks and rec classes finally have some students signed up. I have to make a sample PJ pants and a sample collarless robe made before the end of the month. Will shopping for these garments count? I'm on a fabric fast for the entire year and haven't cheated even once. Maybe I already have something in my stash I can use. Repeat after me, "It's fun to shop the stash." Also, next Saturday I'm teaching a pants fitting class at a quilt store. Lots of prep to do before that class as well. I should be feeling better by then, I hope!
