It’s been cool and gray here the past few days. It’s been really nice to get a break from the heat. The weather has been the perfect inspiration to help me hunker down and work on Hallowe’en aprons while listening to Sookie Stackhouse novels* on my iPod, which is exactly what I’ve been doing. The plan is to have the aprons done by the end of next week, and I’m excited to say that it’s shaping up to happen.
I always feel weird sewing things production-line style. Sewing up a million apron ties, then sewing up a million pockets, etc., always makes me feel like I’m getting nothing accomplished. It’s odd, because intellectually I know that I’m getting things done faster and more efficiently, but when the end of the day comes, and there’s no finished product, it just doesn’t feel right.
I’m finally getting to the point with this collection where I see the end in sight, and I’m loving how everything is turning out. I can’t wait to roll the aprons out in early September!
