Well, happy new year right? A week into 2012 and I feel really productive. Anyone else still settling into a routine, or is it business as usual?
I’ve been back at work for 4 days. Miles started a new day care. JJ is gone Army training. Its taken some creative scheduling and doing things differently to get it all in, but we’re managing. But man, its lonely around here after Miles goes to bed.
I’m happy to report that I’m training for the NoLa 1/2 (week 1 of 9), following this plan over at Runner’s World. The track workout Tuesday sucked, but wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. And my splits weren’t as slow as I expected. And the tempo run on Wednesday went well, considering. All good signs.
In terms of sewing, I am on a roll! I finished up most of that mystery quilt top; I’m still deciding on whether to add the borders or not. We’ll see. I think its plenty big enough already. And plenty bright.
Denver Fabrics (the real store, not the online one) had a huge sale on New Year’s Day – 30% off everything. Everything! I picked up these lovelies. mmmmm. There’s enough fabric there for 4 dresses and lining for 2 skirts.
I’m beginning work on the Beignet. The fabric is prewashed and ironed. The pattern pieces cut. I’m debating which fitting method I’m going to use. Make a muslin? Tissue fit? Baste seams or pin fit? We’ll see.
