the past few weeks have been strange for me in the motivation department; somewhat out of sorts and unbelieveably lethargic. not myself. at. all. medically cleared of anything sinister undermining my wellbeing, i am putting it down to a lack of exercise and the melbourne winter, overdosing on herbal teas and sleep.
i must be improving as i went to my favourite fabric store today and came away with, oh, about 8 different bundles of new textiles; some with no known destination, some already designed and worn - in my mind. all are enduring the pre-cut wash whilst allowing myself a day or so more of enjoying the "thought" of what might be. (and the damage could have been much, much worse but i really tried to limit what i brought home. honest.)
and so, instead, i have finished a new long sleeve top that has also lain about half done (much like myself):
extra length to the arms for wrapping over cold hands on the walk to school each winter morning.
midriff cross darts for subtle bust shaping and detail (*cough*, ahem, not that i need much "shaping" in this department, but the thought was there...). i love this cross detail and have been use it regularly.
wide double looped neck cuff with button detail. should give abundant space for my daily scarf or cowl preference.
and not happy with typepad's new resolution level. my photos look overexposed, grainy and pixelated. not happy. not happy. at. all.
