Islander Jacket Express -4 (or how to make it slowly!)Posted: September 13, 2013 Filed under: Craftsy, Islander Patterns, Life | Tags: Craftsy, Jackets, Life 4 Comments
I got back from my mums house last weekend with great intentions of sorting out all the jobs I had left behind, and finishing half done projects. I wanted to make a start on autumn clothes as it has suddenly become quite chilly, and there are now morning mists on the river- a clear sign that the season is changing. Then I developed another dental abscess. Darn.
I have had three dentist appointments this week, am feeling a bit low, and am just about keeping pace with client work. I have been working on the jacket and hoped to finish it today but in keeping with the way things have gone this week I discovered that the hammer on studs I thought I had bought for the project were actually hammer on buttons so I still need to make buttonholes. I think ‘more haste, less speed’ applies here.
I am setting this aside for the moment as I have a couple of deadlines looming but I hope to finish mid next week. I am starting to get a bit bored and if I don’t finish this I will cast it aside as an undeserved wadder. I will give more details about my opinion of the jacket, and the Craftsy course when I finish.
P.S. Thank you to those who wished my mum well. She is much better now and able to cope on her own again.
It sounds like you’ve had one of those weeks:) Sometimes it’s just easier to let everything stew and get back to it later…
I’m glad your Mom is doing better.
Aint that the truth!
Good wishes to you and your mum…
Thanks Tanya 🙂
