I'm continuing the archeological dig through the layers of my sewing table. Today I uncovered five mending projects: three pairs of pants and two shirts, all belonging to my sweet hubby, all needing very minor fixes, and all have been waiting for attention since before the move.
I did get one project finished today, because I really needed the lift that comes with completing something. It was something I hadn't tried before: a twist-front top from Wild Ginger's new PatternMaster Knits program.
Let's just say that this one won't be part of my regular wardrobe. And therein lies yet another frustration: I see pictures of garments that look terrific on a wide assortment of bodies... except mine. I have no idea why. With this one, I think it's the deep Vee neckline that just isn't flattering. And I don't like the sleeves, either; they're too long and too floppy. Serves me right for not checking the settings before printing out the pattern.
So, progress is being made. Thanks to all of you for your wonderfully supportive comments; they really do help keep me motivated.
