I cut out a pair of shorts last night to test another pattern for some pants I got fabric for at SAS during the retreat. I found a scrap of fabric I saved from a project i made years ago and it was just enough to cut out the shorts and now there is not enough for anything.............love that. In any case sewed half of the project last night and finished them up today and am actually wearing them and they are not the best fabric (it was a test item so that is why I used it) but they are really comfortable and look pretty good too, might make another pair of shorts in some nicer fabrics because I really like these...........there will be photos once I get the pants sewn up, likely in the next few days at the rate I am going.

I'm saying never ever.  If we need to repaint, I will pay someone.  I'm already sore and it isn't even tomorrow yet!

Before you know it you are going to have a whole new wardrobe.

Well I kinda do have a whole new mini Summer weardrobe. Many of the things were planned some time back so it is not like they are not needed. I am going to make a pair of pants this week that I planned to make last Fall. I went to the retreat with a list of patterns, yardage requirements and type of fabric for the trip we took to SAS. Everyone else was buying quilting cotton and I spent $94 of the $100 I planned to spend and only got 1 piece of quilting cotton. I spent most of the trip looking at all the other fabrics and ended up with a suitcase packed with clothing fabrics....................now I am slowly sewing those up. All but 3 fabrics were preplanned and I have already sewn up one of the unplanned items. When I think about it I sewed clothes most of my younger life and really enjoyed the process from planning to being able to wear the finished item. I really have a stash big enough that I will not run out of fabric for a very long time...............I will run out of thread first but so far doing good in that department as well.

We had several of those little things...red clear thing, a door peekthru, etc. Another thing you can do is take a black/white pic on your phone so you can look at just the values
