Success!

So it took a few more days than I thought it would before I could get to the sewing - partly because I had a meltdown with the sewing machine, which I later discovered was due to me not threading it properly. Once the MumPilot helped me and the machine sort out our differences, we were off to the races! I hemmed a halter top I'd grabbed for free from the lobby, and took about eight or ten inches off a blue-and-white polka-dot-hearts skirt, so it just skims my knees.

I still have a bucketful of sewing projects languishing under my bed, but now that I have made friends with the sewing machine again, I think it'll be much easier to charge through those projects. More skirts to hem! More summer outfits to pull together! And it sounds like it's going to be a warm one, so I'm just in time ... yays!

I'm pondering making a summer bucket list - less of a list where I have to do EVERYTHING or else I will feel SO GUILTY, more of a list that reminds me on one of those hazy summer days when I have time off work, "Oh, hey, that's a cool idea!" Anyone up for making one with me?

ETA: just finished hemming and taking in the waist of a crinkly black skirt with a floral pattern - perfect summer length!
