A new stack of brightly colored napkins is a beautiful thing. I've been collecting colorful dishes from thrift stores and, surprisingly, dollar stores for a few months now and have quite a wonderful collection started. I've been wanting new dishes for a while but have been completely unwilling to put out the money to buy them. Too many other things I'd rather spend several hundred dollars on.
Unfortunately, since the napkins my sewing adventures have come to a screeching halt. I can't decided on anything to sew! I've been scouring the internet and my rather large collection of sewing books but nothing sounds right. I don't want anything too time consuming. No quilts or difficult clothing. Not in the mood for kid stuff, although maybe later. I'd like something I can enjoy now. An easy summer dress, a tote bag or purse but nothing with fussy interfacing. And nothing that requires too much fabric. I want to use what I have and a trip to the fabric store doesn't sound like fun at this point. There are plenty of pretty but useless (to me) tutorials out there which is usually what I go for but I'm not wanting to spend my time on something to sit on a shelf. Plus, I don't have the brain power for following a lengthy online tutorial. Just give me a easy pattern to cut and pin. Oh, and it has to be a downloadable pattern. No patience to wait for the USPS either. And, although there are still hundreds of possibilities out there that fit my rather rigid criteria, I'm already bored with looking.
Man, what a complainer I've turned into. Hopefully, I'll be pulling out of this funk soon. Maybe I should just get back to what I know best. Or maybe another nap would do the trick.
