Yah, that’s me. A little Stymied. I have all of this fabulous new fabric all pre-washed and waiting and I am feeling overwhelmed and underskilled. Yes, 2 emotional crises at once- at least I can say I am finally an overachiever!

When we last left our heroine, a week ago, I was so giddy to sew that I whipped up 2 of my fav ‘go to’ patterns- Vogue 1247 and Simplicity 2059. I love both because you can use any fabric and get a great result. Also, I have this strange vision that the aliens will arrive and make us their meat slaves and we will all have to wear a uniform. If we base it on something we all already have, Vogue 1247 is bound to be chosen! Hopefully not with Ugg boots.

But now onto my dilemma what to make next? Do I bend to the wise peer pressure and sew with a plan? Or continue sewing like I have a rich cultured event attending lifestyle and keep making patterns I’d just like to play with? Ok, let’s have some opinions:

I just came across the coolest version of Vogue 1225- go see Steppenpuppy’s Blog! She made this a little more fun, don’t you think? Is it wrong to copy Homage someone’s make an hour after they post it? Or is that just major flattery? I’m going with flattery! It made me look at this pattern again, too.  Maybe I could winterize this one and not make poor Steppenpuppy feel like I’m peeking into her windows! Ok, I’m off to visit the closet of egregious  textile hoarding for some fabric fondling and inspiration!

But before I do- let me share that Ms Velosewer has made an announcement about the Pattern Pyramid Pile!
