Sewing season. Similar to tax season but with less drama. Blogging for me may be spotty these upcoming weeks due to Sewing Season. I normally don't consider myself a procrastinator but that's what I've become and so now I need to cram in a whole bunch of sewing for our upcoming Disney vacation. And why do I torture myself so? It's for the children. Think of the children.
I find that with most things in life, I'm more productive if I work on something from start to finish. If I have to put something down and revisit it multiple times, eh, it's hard for me to get my groove back. And with sewing projects, it's very hard to work on something from start to finish in one shot.
So here's a bit of what I've recently accomplished:
Three princesses for three princesses. These are for our lunch at Akershus in Epcot.
Anna's Olaf top.
The top front of Allie's Elsa dress. You can't tell from the photo but the fabric is sparkly.
So we recently had the opportunity to book FastPass plus for our Magic Bands - I'm still working on the new lingo - and it was a bit of a disaster. Well, not disaster but not the great thing it's supposed to be, in my opinion. Because we have two rooms and Grammy's the adult in the second room, Rich couldn't add FastPasses for her but he could for the kid that was listed as being in Room #2. Made no sense. He ended up having to call to have someone fix it. Then, of course, the only FastPass that I really wanted was for the Anna and Elsa meet and greet but those weren't available and even if they were, I highly doubt there would be six of them. I guess my disgruntlement revolves around the fact that we're deciding what rides/events we are going to want to do 60 days before our vacation. Disney is becoming a little too rigid for me. I don't like that loss of spontaneity. But the kids are excited. Think of the children!
I finished a book last week that had me wanting to visit Charleston, SC. It was on our list of potential vacation spots a looooong time ago but then we had kids and that vacation was shelved. With the girls older, our vacation possibilities are expanding. Also, if you can't tell, I like to dream of vacations. Who doesn't? Virginia Beach is another place I'd be interested in checking out. What is it like compared to the beaches here? And I still want to bring the girls to the Florida Keys. As of right now, we are planning to visit DC in the spring. . .
